Hefflefinger & Hall Presenters at Iowa Motor Truck Association Safety Conference


Heyl Royster's Matt Hefflefinger and Larry Hall took the stage at the Iowa Motor Truck Association Safety Conference on Tuesday, December 13. They discussed how a personal injury attorney may use your company's driver handbook and internal policies and procedures to raise the commercial driver's standard of care and create liability in a no-fault accident.

Matt Hefflefinger is an aggressive advocate who has tried many cases to verdict and enjoys the challenge of complex litigation. He handles the defense of personal injury cases, primarily focusing on the trucking and construction industries. Matt is chair of the firm's Trucking/Motor Carrier Litigation Practice Group. He is frequently contacted immediately after a catastrophic loss to visit an accident scene and help develop the facts and case strategy with an eye toward a successful result once litigation is filed. Beyond his experience in trucking and construction matters, he also handles cases touching upon a wide variety of areas in commercial litigation.

Larry Hall devotes his legal practice to representing local, regional, and national carriers throughout the litigation process. Larry works with trucking clients in all aspects of their business, including immediate response investigations, safety policies/training, regulatory compliance, and general risk management. His knowledge and dedication to the transportation industry have earned Larry the trust of his clients such that he is called upon to serve as lead counsel in high-exposure and difficult losses. He has successfully tried cases to verdict and reached negotiated outcomes in what are widely considered some of the most challenging defense venues in the country. Larry's practice also includes defending high exposure and catastrophic product liability cases involving various products, including trailers, heavy machinery, electrical components, and consumer goods. He has significant experience with a wide range of fire science and premises liability matters.
