Electronic On-Board Recorders


Trucks are more dangerous than other vehicles on the road for a multitude of reasons. Not only are they often quite large in size and heavy in weight, they are also usually driven by drivers who have been on the road for far longer than the average commuter, thus leaving them susceptible to possible accidents. If you or a loved one have been in an accident with a truck, you are far more likely to suffer from severe injuries than if your accident had occurred with another vehicle. While you may be left with various damages and injuries, the driver is likely not.

If the truck driver is opposing responsibility and you are unsure of how to pursue compensation for your overwhelming medical bills, loss of work, and pain and suffering, you may not be aware there are several ways an experienced New York City personal injury attorney can help you attain the justice you deserve. Following an accident with a truck, there will be an investigation so as to determine who is at fault and why, and there are a few key factors which present the opportunity to put the responsibility on the truck driver, and not you.

Electronic on-board recorders, also known as EOBRs, are installed directly into a truck and automatically record information such as the truck’s speed, distance traveled, and hours of operation. Most trucks are required to install EOBRs by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The FMSCA requires the installation of these devices in order to not only ensure the safety of other drivers on the road, but that of the truck drivers’ as well. By analyzing these devices, we can hold the truck driver responsible if he was at fault for speeding or being on the road for far too long.
