Several years ago, we published a series of interviews with John Cruickshank, Senior Associate at a national litigation and consulting law firm, dealing with the subject of negligent entrustment. We ran into him again at a recent meeting of the NorCal-Northern Nevada Chapter of NAFA Fleet Management Association where he eloquently spoke about legal risks fleet face with vehicle safety technologies.
A specialist in liability evaluation and mitigation, John co-authored a white paper: ‘Managing the Legal Risks of Vehicle Safety Technologies’ – and it is excellent. He asks, “How does a company balance the need to implement adequate levels of vehicle safety technology to avoid a negligence finding while still trying to maintain business and operational efficiencies?”
His legal philosophy is that the best way to win a lawsuit is to avoid being sued in the first place. You’ll find his white paper — which will help you do just that — in The Legal Corner.
