The Risky Busines of Fleet Safety

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.
