This New (Fourth) Edition of The Law of Commercial Trucking: Damages to Persons and Property continues the high standard of excellence previously set by this publication with a complete updating of the numerous changes in and interpretations of the law and the federal motor carrier safety regulations. The Fourth Edition helps judges, attorneys, risk managers, and company officials, as well as owners, lessors, lessees, drivers and shippers, understand the myriad legal issues that are specific to interstate trucking.
The increased presence of commercial vehicles, heavy and light, on our nation’s streets and highways impacts various industries such as agricultural, government, energy, construction, mining and even the local retailer. Any attorney who represents these industries or trucking companies, truck drivers or the owners and operators of trucks and trailers will find this publication to be an invaluable research aid. In addition, this publication provides an instrumental benefit for attorneys who do not deal with trucking-related issues on a regular basis, but who nevertheless find themselves faced with the extremely complicated legal issues surrounding an accident involving commercial trucks or trucking companies.
This two-volume, looseleaf treatise contains thousands of cases covering virtually every conceivable aspect of the law on commercial trucking. The encyclopedic coverage provided in the Fourth Edition is necessary for any legal or corporate professional handling a commercial trucking case, whether it is a personal injury accident case, a freight claim, a products liability/warranty case or a case involving a commercial motor vehicle insurance policy.
The Fourth Edition contains an entirely new chapter covering the legal issues associated with intermodal traffic traversing in and out of our country's ports and pulling containers over U.S. highways. There are also new links to various appendix materials that can be easily reached online instantly. These appendix materials include relevant sections of the federal motor carrier safety regulations, the FMCSA's Interstate Truck Driver's Guide to Hours of Service, the Uniform Intermodal Interchange agreement, and an NTSB opinion on front impact guards.
The law surrounding commercial trucking issues is constantly evolving. The new looseleaf format of the Fourth Edition allows for annual updates of the publication to be integrated directly into the text, essentially making the Fourth Edition a “living document.” This is a significant improvement for the users of this invaluable resource.
The reasonably priced The Law of Commercial Trucking: Damages to Persons and Property provides the resources you need to represent clients with confidence in truck-related litigation, help in the risk management assessment and reduce legal expenses. Annual updates to the treatise contain abundant analysis and discussion of recent case law and regulatory developments.
