Attorney Steven Gursten speaks in truck driver depositions webinar

Steven Gursten served as one of three truck accident legal experts in a national webinar on effective truck driver depositions

Michigan Auto Law attorney Steven Gursten spoke at “Deposing Truck Drivers and Trucking Company Representatives in Injury Cases,” a Strafford Publications CLE webinar, on May 24.

In the webinar, Gursten — one of three top truck accident litigators in the U.S. featured in the presentation — discussed the most effective deposition questions and techniques for the truck accident case.

The presentation was designed to give injury attorneys representing truck accident survivors and their families the skills to properly lead truck driver depositions, as well as deposing trucking company management — notably the “safety directors” who are charged with making sure truckers are healthy, qualified and trained before they hit the road. The issues covered included:

  • Effectively questioning deponent truckers
  • Videotaping trucker depositions
  • Using demonstrative exhibits
  • Communicating with difficult truck drivers or truck company employees
  • Objections
  • Rule 30(b)(6) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure regarding deposition notices for truck and bus company corporate representatives
