Companies interested in learning more about the process of a vehicle accident case headed to jury trial will have the chance to experience it firsthand during a mock trial hosted next month by the Indiana Motor Truck Association.
The IMTA will host the mock trial event July 13, focusing on a real catastrophic accident claim. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Primo’s Banquet & Conference Center, 2615 National Ave., Indianapolis.
Designed to peel back the layers of trucking accidents lawsuits, the mock trial workshop aims to help prepare carrier companies for stepping into a court of law. It’s goal — to help companies walk away with a better understanding of how a jury responds at such a trial.
Topics to be explored during the event include the process of post-accident investigation, answering interrogatories from attorneys, providing deposition testimony, giving witness testimony on the stand and paying a multi-million-dollar judgment to someone who was involved in a truck accident.
Attendance costs for IMTA members $175 and $275 for non-members.
Partners of the event include Scopelitis Garvin Light, Hanson & Feary, the IMTA allied membership and the IMTA’s Safety and Maintenance Council.
Registration for the event can be found online.
