Is an investigation done after a truck accident?

Truck accident investigations are crucial, just as critical as an investigation involving a car accident. Things are a little different in the case of a truck accident investigation because truckers are required by law to maintain a log book and they may drive only a certain number of hours a day.

In the case of an accident, an attorney needs to establish if the log was true and accurate, or the driver kept a double set of log books, with one showing his or her actual hours and one showing the hours he or she was supposed to drive. The logbook should show the hours the trucker had logged at the time of the accident. Any violations of existing legal standards may result in additional liability for the trucker and/or trucking company.

Logbook violations and other information, such as a black box, may be difficult to access if the accident is not investigated immediately.
