A second way to obtain evidence against a truck driver or company in your GA personal injury claim is through automatic on-board recording devices. It can be compared to the black box that's often retrieved after a plane has crashed, in order to learn what potentially caused it to happen.

It's also similar to a logbook and may in fact be a replacement of one. It can also keep a record of the number of hours a driver has been behind the wheel and how many miles they've traveled. 

Additionally, some automatic on-board recording devices can also track the speed at which a truck driver is traveling. This could significantly help prove your case of negligence if it were to be found that the driver had been speeding.

Finally, your GA personal injury claim can be helped if you have evidence that the truck driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Post-accident truck driver testing may be used to determine this. 

There are strict guidelines when it comes to truck drivers drinking alcohol or a controlled substance. There are specific rules as to how much time in between a driver can use alcohol and then go on duty. All of this may significantly influence your case.
