On behalf of a plaintiff or defendant, Cahn has completed numerous searches for a fleet management expert witness, including cases involving trucking safety, hazardous materials, vehicle maintenance, DOT compliance and regulations, fleet operation, truck driver training, and telematics. The selected expert may be a member of an industry organization such as the NAFA Fleet Management Association, the Automotive Fleet & Leasing Association (AFLA), or FleetPros.
