Peter M. Anderson and Carlo F. Bonavita

Format: On Demand Program
Sale price$125.00

Truck accident cases involving large commercial trucks often involve serious injuries and complex litigation issues that are distinct from traditional car crash cases. In this program, experienced trial lawyers Peter M. Anderson and Carlo Bonavita teach you how to successfully navigate and win truck accident cases.

Starting with an in-depth look into commercial motor vehicle (CMV) brake systems, this session will examine all aspects of CMV brakes, including what trucking academies teach, brake tests needed to obtain a commercial driver license (CDL), and daily brake system inspection requirements. Attendees will also learn about the intricacies of the heart of the system, from the compressor to glad hands to brake chambers.

This trucking CLE program will review brake-related Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and connect the requirements to State CDL manuals. Anderson and Bonavita will cover shippers and brokers’ duties to hire safe motor carriers and how to assess brake issues with potential carriers, including a detailed review of the legal requirements of truckers and motor carriers’ daily and yearly inspections, maintenance, repairs, and required document retention.

Peter M. Anderson is a jury trial lawyer who specializes in co-counseling trucking cases throughout the US and has tried jury trials every year for two decades, winning over 95 percent of his trials, while other cases have resulted in seven- and eight-figure settlements. In the past two years, he has tried five 18-wheeler semi-truck cases. In 2023 alone, he obtained over $12 million in jury verdicts and over $40 million in settlements.

Carlo F. Bonavita has more than 17 years of experience handling complex trucking liability and insurance coverage issues. Bonavita served on a regional counsel team for a major interstate motor carrier for a decade, and he has extensive experience in legal research, discovery, and motions practice.
