What makes investigating trucking companies after an accident so complicated?
Trucking companies often make things difficult for people investigating accidents caused by their truck drivers for many different reasons, including:
- Concealing evidence that the trucking company hired reckless truck drivers with history of causing truck accidents
- Trucking records which show that the trucking company doesn’t properly maintain trucks
- Records which indicate that the truck driver has caused similar accidents in the past
- Truck company records which indicate that the truck driver broke the law, including:
- Driving longer than allowed under federal Hours of Service (HOS) laws.
- Driving under the influence of alcohol
- Driving with a suspended truck license
One challenge in investigating trucking companies is that some of the key evidence is the trucking company’s property, including the “black box” data. A black box is an electronic computer system that records data about the truck's status, such as speed, direction of travel, and whether the brakes were engaged. Securing this data can reveal negligence on the part of the driver or the trucking company.
Details matter when it comes to commercial truck driving accidents. That’s why it’s critical that you have an experienced truck accident attorney on your side, investigating the trucking company the driver worked for who caused your crash.

We know the games trucking companies often play after serious truck accidents. They might claim they can’t find the records you need. Or they might claim that certain records don’t exist. Or they might even try to falsify records or destroy them. They might also try to point the finger at you, even though you did nothing to cause your truck accident.
