Electronic logs might provide information in truck accident cases

Truck drivers are responsible for a variety of things when they get behind the wheel of those big rigs. Not only do they have to get the cargo to the destination on time and in good condition. They also have to operate the truck in a manner that keeps the others on the roadways safe.However, not all truckers drive in a safe manner.

If you are involved in a truck accident, one important thing to determine is whether the trucker was in compliance with the hours of service requirement set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The hours of service regulations are aimed at keeping fatigued truckers off the roads by giving them ample time to rest between shifts.

One way to determine if the hours of service regulations were complied with is to check the logs for the trucker. These logs have been kept on paper since 1938. However, that is soon changing. Truckers are going to have to keep their logs electronically thanks to a new rule set forth by the FMCSA.

This new ruling can help us to get accurate information if you are injured in a trucking accident. Where the paper logs can be altered or two sets of logs can be completed by the trucker, the new electronic logs aren't able to be altered as easily.

If you have been injured in an accident with a semi-truck, you might decide to seek compensation. We can help gather evidence such as these logs and work to help you recover the costs associated with your injuries.
