The Crooked World of Staged Accidents
Thursday, September 23, 2021 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM) (EDT)
Staged accidents aren't new, but in recent years, perpetrators have begun more actively targeting commercial trucks because they tend to have larger dollar signs associated with them. This issue not only affects the targeted carriers, but is raising insurance rates industry wide and encouraging new criminals to enter the market. While the deck has historically been stacked against trucking companies, there are ways you can protect your fleet.
Join NCTA and EROAD in a webinar to learn how pervasive staged accidents are, how to investigate and prove if you've been in a staged accident, and the steps to take (and NOT to take) to protect your business and yourself.
• Discover how criminals are targeting trucking companies and what you can do about it
• Learn the different types of staged accidents and how to identify them
• Best practices for training your drivers on handling accidents at roadside
