Killer Roads: From Crash to Verdict
More than 40,000 people are killed on our highways each year, and millions more are injured. Bad drivers and bad vehicles alone do not account for this carnage. The highway itself is often a contributing -- even determining -- cause of accidents.
Killer Roads provides comprehensive guidance on the many issues surrounding transportation facility negligence. It helps you pinpoint essential engineering issues and relevant road defects, assess the quality of maintenance, identify pertinent engineering standards, and understand the liability of all parties.
However, Killer Roads goes beyond describing the legal basis for your courtroom strategy. It also provides helpful, hands-on guidance for implementing this strategy successfully. Written in straightforward language, Killer Roads demonstrates how highway liability issues impact your approach to jury selection, the opening statement, cross-examination, and expert witness testimony.
