The panel consisted of various industry leaders, including directors of corporate risk management and vice presidents of safety and claims for Saia Motor Freight Line, Roehl Transportation, Estes Express Lines, and Tyson Foods. The panel discussed the current trends which are being seen in motor carrier litigation. These topics included technology in the cab, inward and outward facing cameras, preservation letters being sent after accidents, and the court’s recent cases as they relate to the classification of drivers for employment issues and driver’s workers’ compensation claims.
