Ramsdell has decades of nationwide experience working especially in the liability areas of interstate trucking litigation cases, including making effective communications and presentations to decision makers, insurance defense lawyers, insurance companies, focus groups and mock trials regarding the violation of interstate trucking industry safety regulations, rules, standards, practices and procedures, in numerous types of commercial interstate trucking and commercial bus crash cases. These areas of liability include but are not limited to the liability of commercial motor carriers, their officers, agents, representatives, and employees responsible for the management, maintenance, operation, or driving of commercial motor vehicles, or the hiring, supervising, training, assigning, or dispatching of drivers. These entities sometimes include lessors and lessees of commercial motor vehicle equipment, lessors and lessees of commercial motor vehicle operators, brokers and shippers, employee leasing companies and other potential defendants, depending upon the particular facts of the case.

Ramsdell has decades of experience analyzing, preparing, identifying, creating and implementing effective liability exhibits on specific areas of trucking industry violations in cases for plaintiffs, and their manner of use in order to be able to best communicate to anyone the trucking industry’s liability in each and every phase of trucking litigation. The consultant’s recommended communications and exhibits process starts with the investigation of the case, and continues through every phase of the litigation through and including depositions, settlement, trial and appeal.

The use of this process often helps to identify a defendant’s conscious or reckless disregard of trucking industry safety rules, regulations, standards, practices and procedures, as well as the identification of additional potential trucking industry defendants.
