Settlement strategies for attorneys in truck accident injury lawsuits

September 28, 2016 by Steven M. Gursten

Attorney Steven Gursten of Michigan Auto Law will share lessons from over 300 trucking cases and trial tips with the Academy of Truck Accident Attorneys in Nashville this week


This week, I’ll be sharing my strategies for attorneys handling their first serious trucking cases. These strategies will teach lawyers unfamiliar with trucking lawsuits how to increase the value of your cases so we can all better serve our clients.

High stakes truck accident litigation is a specialized field of law, with its own special regulations and rules. It demands deep subject knowledge. You have to know how to speak the language of trucking.

I will present during the Academy of Truck Accident Attorneys (ATAA) Annual Symposium, which starts today and runs through September 30 in Nashville, TN. My topic is called, “Settlement Tips and Strategies in Trucking Cases.”

I will give tips on:

  • How to get the defense attorneys and insurance companies to take your settlement number seriously.
  • Exploring insurance reserve bad faith and how smart plaintiff attorneys can create and exploit the often hidden conflicts of interest on the defense side to increase settlement value in truck injury cases.

The Academy of Truck Accident Attorneys is a national group of renowned plaintiffs lawyers who are dedicated to helping families affected by serious truck and bus accidents throughout the U.S. The ATAA Annual Symposium is a three-day event that includes basic, intermediate and advanced topics in trucking litigation presented by the premier trial lawyers and experts in this specialized practice area.
