Webinar: Engineering Liability, Discretionary Immunity, and the Dutues of Transportation Agencies


Event date: March 10, 2020
Event Time: 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Eugene, OR 97401
A reality of most engineering practitioners is that at some point in your career, you, or one of your projects will end up in a lawsuit. Transportation agencies often use standards, guidelines, and the threat of being sued as the reason not to do something. But does the simple act of following a standard grant us immunity? What constitutes an argument or allegation that is relevant and what guidance would a City Attorney offer to practitioners for documenting decisions?

In this webinar, you will hear from attorneys that have been on opposite sides of an injury case, gaining insight into arguments and how prosecuting and defense attorneys view the law. They will provide insights relevant for engineers charged with design, operations, and maintenance of transportation facilities, providing keen insights into past case studies, that have resulted in significant judgments that present lessons learned for public agencies.
