Black box data can help your truck crash case

Truck accidents happen all the time, but although they're extremely damaging, there is one upside. These crashes often have evidence that can help show why the crash occurred.

Semitrucks and commercial vehicles usually contain a black box, which, similarly to those in airplanes, contains operational data about the things the driver did behind the wheel.

The black box may have information on the number of hard stops the driver performed or record how long the driver drove without stopping. This data is exceptionally important, since it can show if the driver was in violation of federal regulations. If so, that makes it easier for the victims of the collision to seek compensation.

The problem with the black boxes is that they only record data for a limited period of time. Additionally, they roll over data once it reaches that time period. For instance, if the black box is designed to hold information for 30 days, that information is then recorded over once the next 30 days begin. This means that victims have a limited time to seek access to the information in that record. Failing to do so quickly could mean that the data is lost forever.

Our website has more information on truck accidents and what to do if you've been injured. Black box data can help you fight for fair compensation and get you the evidence you need to prove that the truck driver was negligent or in violation of federal laws. The right information can help you get everything you need to support yourself while you focus on recovery.
