Why Calling an Attorney as Soon as Possible is Important
Trucking companies have representatives in the field who often arrive at accident scenes while emergency medical personnel are still trying to help the injured. These agents may steer law enforcement officials away from evidence and information that would be helpful for the injured person. Evidence is may be lost or destroyed. This evidence includes: driver's logs and electronic control modules, also known as ECMs or blackboxes. ECMs record speed, braking, RPMs, and gear shifting. Obtaining logs and ECMs is important, because these devices are often used to place liability on the trucker or trucking company. Trucking companies need to be held accountable for their violations.
