Hefflefinger Presents at DRI Trucking Seminar


DRI held the 2022 DRI Trucking Law Seminar in Austin, Texas, on April 27-29, focusing on how the trucking industry is becoming smarter, faster, and better. Presentations included discussions of trucking technology's current and future landscape from insiders at the forefront of these developments. Heyl Royster's Matt Hefflefinger and colleagues presented "When your Trucking Case Turns into a Products Case," discussing product liability issues sweeping into trucking cases with increased dependency on technology to improve safety on the roadway.
