Evaluating Driver Logs and Black Boxes
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires commercial trucks carry electronic logging devices that record the data of a truck driver’s journey. From the number of hours the driver is behind the wheel to the speed, GPS coordinates, and even whether the driver was using a seatbelt, the device captures valuable information. Our lawyers can conduct our own investigation of your accident, which may include insight into this device, commonly known as the “black box,” and truck driver logs to find evidence to support your injury claim.
Types of Damages You May Recover after a Truck Accident
In the majority of truck-on-car accidents, the injured party is the driver of the passenger vehicle. Large semi-trucks typically incur minimal impact, leading to the drivers suffering minor injuries, while the drivers and passengers of the smaller vehicles often endure extensive trauma. Recovering from a truck accident can quickly lead to overwhelming expenses for which you were not prepared.
