2 Handling the Highway to Hell (and taking the right exit) 2014 Transportation Practice Group Seminar April 23-25, 2014 The Biltmore Coral Gables, Florida ALL ABOUT THE BILTMORE Having housed guests as notorious as Al Capone and as noteworthy as Franklin D. Roosevelt, The Biltmore has remained one of the country s most historic hotels for nearly a century. The Biltmore is located southwest of downtown Miami in beautiful Coral Gables. Coral Gables, or City Beautiful, is known as a pedestrianfriendly destination and has nearly 140 dining establishments and gourmet shops, and many notable international retailers. The resort is located 5 miles (10 minutes) from Miami International Airport and 30 miles (40 minutes) from the Ft. Lauderdale airport, both easily accessible by taxi (recommended). Welcome to the 2014 ALFA Transportation Practice Group Seminar in beautiful Coral Gables, Florida. This year s program brings together leaders from around the country to address important issues at the forefront of the transportation industry. Too often, we find ourselves attempting to navigate the Highway to Hell when handling claims and litigation. Obstacles, both novel and recycled, arise at every turn, requiring immediate and skilled responses. This year s seminar is designed to give you a roadmap of those obstacles and how ALFA s Transportation Practice Group Members are best equipped to respond and guide you to the exits. We will meet with a focus group for an in-depth, inside look into jurors perspectives of the Highway to Hell, including their reactions to highway obstacles such as cell phone records and social media evidence. We will also hear about neuropsychology and human factors experts, as well as how to defend against and use such experts effectively. Finally, we will learn from our own experts how to defend against the reptiles you might encounter along the highway, tactics to use against them when trying to find your exit, and numerous other topics to help you handle the road too often traveled.

Needham MULLIN HOARD & BROWN, LLP Amarillo, Texas THE ART OF THE DEAL: MEDIATING YOUR TROUBLES (AND LAWSUITS) AWAY In a world where many court systems mandate participation in some form of alternative dispute resolution as a gateway to getting to trial, parties can take advantage of this opportunity to resolve valid claims in what can be an efficient and effective forum mediation. The resolution process, however, is not a science; it s a work of art that is often molded by the mediator using the information given by the parties. This panel will take you behind the scenes of a mediation to discuss mediation tactics employed by plaintiffs, strategies invoked by mediators, and ways for defendants to respond to them to make the most of the time spent preparing for and attending mediations.

6 8:35 a.m. 9:10 a.m. ENGAGING THE HUMAN FACTORS EXPERT: CAN WE SEE THE VALUE? For decades, we have been using accident reconstruction experts to investigate, analyze and explain the mechanics and physics of motor vehicle accidents. Often, we have had them address perception and reaction times, visibility and conspicuity, and a host of other issues that involve uniquely human actions and interactions with the vehicles they operate and the hazards with which they are confronted. In more recent years, individuals specially trained and educated in the field of human actions and responses to a variety of stimuli have begun to present new and perhaps more reliable evidence-based data regarding driver perception and reaction times dependent upon the particular hazard presented and the attempted avoidance maneuver. Likewise, visibility and conspicuity testing has become more refined and the analysis and application of such studies may provide superior defenses from those previously presented. Join us in this panel discussion for an update of key issues that may lend themselves to consultation with and testimony by an experienced and uniquely qualified human factors expert and the value that such insight, testing, analysis, and testimony may bring to the defense of certain cases. 9:10 a.m. 9:45 a.m. Hal D.

Springfield, Missouri Christy Comstock EVERETT & WALES Fayetteville, Arkansas DO YOU NEED TO STACK THE DECK FOR A WINNING HAND?: CONSIDERATIONS FOR SELECTING THE CORRECT TRIAL TEAM How are trials affected, if at all, by the characteristics of the trial team when discrimination is not the central issue? Is it necessary or wise to model the trial team to meet the anticipated attributes of the jury, plaintiff, or key witnesses? Should the presentation and team be modeled to the locale? Can and should the team and presentation be modified on the fly? This panel incorporates a psychologist, lawyers who specialize in labor and employment issues, and two transportation lawyers to shed light on the issues as we explore (and attempt to answer) the multi-faceted and everevolving diversity issues for the trial team.

NOT YOUR EMPLOYEE, JUST YOUR PROBLEM: MANAGING LITIGATION ISSUES IN THE AGE OF THE INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR Leading with a brief overview of the factors that distinguish independent contractors from employee drivers, this panel will highlight some of the issues motor carriers face with independent contractor drivers. This panel will discuss several of the questions that arise after your independent contractor gets into an accident: How do you recover electronic data and secure evidence from a truck you do not own? How do you handle spoliation issues when the driver takes his truck home and other bobtail issues? How do you manage your driver s hours of service when he could be driving for another company during off time? The panel will also discuss the current law on liability of the motor carrier for the acts of the independent contractor, including when a co-driver is injured in an accident. Annie J.

FACTUAL INTERPRETATION: THE PROS AND CONS OF THE USE OF ACCIDENT SIMULATIONS A point/counterpoint discussion involving the effective use of simulation, avoiding the pitfalls of improper introduction, and how to ensure admissibility.

Senior Vice President, Forensic Division RIMKUS CONSULTING GROUP, INC. Houston, Texas CHALLENGES OF INSURING SMALLER CARRIERS Regional carriers with smaller fleets present specific challenges in the aftermath of a commercial vehicle accident. Are there policy limit concerns? Does the company have a dedicated safety department? Is there a record retention policy? Are drivers trained on how to respond after an accident? Two of the trucking industry s most knowledgeable insurers give insight on these and other challenges associated with insuring and representing smaller carriers. Peter A.

Foos LEWIS WAGNER, LLP Indianapolis, Indiana IN BETWEEN A ROCK AND A REAL HARD PLACE: HOW DO CARRIERS AND THEIR INSURERS HANDLE THE INEVITABLE STRESS OF A CASE THAT S VALUE APPROACHES THE SIR? Quite often in serious cases, the settlement/verdict value gets too close for comfort to the carrier s SIR. The insurer may want the carrier to simply fork over the SIR and place the insurer in control of the case. This panel will confront this dilemma head on with real life advice from those on the front lines of this inevitable and unfortunate conflict. Warner S.
