For the last fifteen years, Todd Clement has specialized in catastrophic trucking and commercial vehicle cases. He has been a featured speaker on trucking for the Texas Trial Lawyers Association since 2003 and has created a series of papers which have become a “go to” resource for the Texas plaintiff’s bar.

During the course of the litigation, Todd retained the leading distracted driving experts in the country and spent many hours of self-study. After a successful resolution of the case, he committed to use his expertise as an agent for positive change. Todd has become the featured legal liability speaker for the National Safety Council and at distracted driving summits nationwide influencing employers nationwide to ban cell phone use while driving on the job. His safety crusade has been highlighted in the Dallas Morning News, the Washington Post, on NBC Nightly News and in many industry safety publications.
