Trucking Expert Witnesses

Trucking expert witnesses are often called upon to consult and testify on transportation related litigation regarding trucking rules and regulations.  On April 22, U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said he is confident that DOT agencies will issue a notice of proposed rules seeking to require speed limiters on heavy trucks by the fall of 2015.
At the hearing before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee’s Highway and Transit Subcommittee entitled “The Future of the Motor Carrier Industry As it Relates to Safety and Technology”, Tom B. Kretsinger, Jr., President/CEO American Central Transport stated “To continue this (decreased fatality) trend will require a greater focus on the causes of truck crashes and a focus on appropriate countermeasures. Specifically, according to multiple studies, data, and other indicators, the vast majority of large truck crashes are the result of driver behaviors and errors. Only a small percentage of large truck crashes are attributable to vehicle defects.”
