What is a Commercial Truck’s “Black Box” and How Can It Be Used After an Accident?

Video Transcript

If you’re the unfortunate victim of an accident, you want to find an attorney who has experience in obtaining the black box data from a truck as soon as possible. Sometimes that data is corrupted, sometimes it’s not kept properly. The black box data will have a lot of information about the speed of the vehicle in the moments and seconds prior to the crash.

You need a truck accident lawyer who is well versed in obtaining this information.
