Ruhl Forensic and the ABA Collaborate on
Truck Accident Litigation, Third Edition
Ruhl Forensic was honored to be asked by the American Bar Association to produce a third edition of this best-selling publication. This comprehensive volume provides in-depth knowledge of both the trucking industry and legal issues pertinent to handling a commercial motor vehicle case.
Written by industry professionals, engineers, reconstructionists and litigators from both bars, this edition features both new content and updates to the regulations. Some of the topics covered include:
- the business of trucking,
- Comprehensive Safety Analysis (CSA),
- on-board electronics,
- loading and unloading,
- truck component failures,
- inspections and maintenance.
This restructured edition is divided into five sections, each dealing with a specific aspect of a trucking case – the driver, the vehicle, the motor carrier, the crash investigation and the litigation. In addition to over-the-road vehicles, the book covers aspects of trucking that apply uniquely to vocational trucking (dump trucks, cement mixers, refuse trucks, snow plows, etc.).
The book is currently available through the ABA.
