The School of Transportation draws upon the expertise of the industry’s leading professionals and experts in trucking litigation to educate you on the effective methods of investigation and resolution of transportation claims. The curriculum, theories, case scenarios, principles, and test questions were designed to be put to use on a daily basis.
 
You will learn the factors to consider throughout the investigation, evaluation, and resolution of transportation losses. Instructors will walk you through the varying complexity of transportation loss scenarios from the onset of an accident through trial. Plus, you will learn the necessity of early response, clear communication, as well as investigation tools and methods, their impact on recognition of exposures, and how they aid in proactive defense to combat outsized verdicts.
