The Department of Transportation released a report stating that fatalities involving truck (semi-tractor trailers) collisions are down almost 4%. One of the reasons may be the additional of collision avoidance and lane departure warning/monitoring systems.
This reminded me of some recent semi-truck matters I’ve handled. If you are injured because of a trucker’s negligence be sure to immediately request a copy of the trucks “black box,” gps system and other tracking data. Nowadays, most every truck company keeps tabs on their trucks. This information can be invaluable to the prosecution of a claim for personal injuries.
