Deposition & Witness Training Seminar

Cedar Rapids, Iowa
Over the last decade, nuclear verdicts and settlements - which often exceed $10 million - have created a dark cloud over the commercial trucking industry. Consequences of these verdicts, where the evidence in many cases doesn’t support the monetary award, include skyrocketing insurance premiums, gaps in insurance coverage, and even business shutdowns for some motor carriers.
 
PROTECT YOURSELF, EDUCATE YOUR EMPLOYEES
 
Avoiding nuclear and large-scale business-ending verdicts and settlements should be at the forefront of every motor carrier or vendor’s mind and at the top of their priority list. Proper education and training are needed for everyone in your company --- especially your safety personnel.
 
An important step you can take is to attend IMTA’s exclusive DEPOSITION & WITNESS TRAINING SEMINAR. By participating in a mock deposition and trial witness cross-examination, your employees will learn all about the litigation process, how to prepare for deposition testimony, and how to stay calm under vigorous cross-examination during trial. Most importantly, you will learn how to avoid trial attorney traps. 
 
SET YOUR EMPLOYEES UP FOR CONFIDENCE & SUCCESS ON THE STAND
 
This in-depth training is suitable for everyone in your company - especially safety officers, hiring professionals, and drivers. It will also cost you pennies compared to the price of sitting across from a plaintiff attorney. In fact, we are offering quantity discounts for companies wanting to have 3 or more folks attend.
 
Our featured presenters come from the Beltrame Law Firm and have extensive knowledge to share with the group.  Marc Beltrame & John Hirl will not only provide you with the proper training, but will walk you through the "do's" and "don't's" in case you find yourself on the stand.
