He has researched and written extensively about many of the details that impact truck crash litigation and other catastrophic injury cases. Mr. Burns has paid particular attention to one such detail that can prove detrimental to plaintiffs—an anachronistic legal rule operating in nearly half the country that allows a motor carrier to conceal its own negligence in hiring, training or supervising its driver by simply admitting that the negligent truck driver was its employee at the time of the crash. He is the national authority on the issue.Close
