Many types of evidence may be used in a Peachtree City truck accident case nowadays. A lawyer can help sort through which may be appropriate for your case after evaluating the circumstances surrounding it.  

Many devices are installed directly into the truck and monitor the driver’s every move. The driver’s patterns of movement, including speeding and braking, are key factors in determining liability in a truck accident case. 

However, time is of the essence after a truck accident, as some trucking companies may erase data from these black boxes in order to clear themselves of any wrongdoing. The black box contains information about every move the driver made while driving the truck. 

On a black box you can find information about: 

  • speed;
  • braking patterns;
  • driving time;
  • average RPM;
  • engine throttle; and
  • fuel consumption. 

It is important to consult a lawyer as soon as you can following a truck accident. Your attorney may reach a written agreement with the other party in order to obtain the black box data. The lawyer can also file a protective order to make sure the data is properly preserved. 

If you were involved in a truck accident, strive to collect as much evidence as possible to defend your case. Gaining access to the black box may help you recover damages after an accident. A Peachtree City truck accident lawyer at the Law Offices of Shane Smith will give your case the attention it deserves.

You’re already doing a great job with the website and the blog. I love the content here and I’m always glad to come back and read some toughts on photography – be it gear, shooting or something else, loved the recent video for Samsung. I love that it isn’t a gear review site. I’d suggest you keep doing what you are and adding some odd piece of gear you found interesting and think people don’t know enough about or don’t use it enough or in the right way. If someone wants a review there are already sites that do them and are doing only that. This site isn’t that and it should never be.It’s not like it’s hard to find a review today for anything.
