truck accidents
00:05
are different because
00:09
all tractor trailers have
00:12
devices that record information the
00:14
black box so to speak although all
00:16
modern cars now also have the black
00:19
boxes
00:20
but the black box in a trucking case
00:24
contains so much information that is
00:27
helpful to you it can give you
00:28
such things as the speed and the rates
00:30
of acceleration the rates of
00:32
deceleration
00:33
when the the truck was started and
00:36
stopped in
00:37
that sort of thing and there are a lot
00:39
of regulations that apply
00:41
to operating trucks that don’t apply to
00:44
operating
00:44
motor vehicles and often in a trucking
00:46
case you may find that the operator
00:49
was violating one or more federal
00:53
regulations
00:54
which contributed to the cause of the
00:57
crash
00:58
where when you have an automobile you
01:00
know we have
01:01
laws we have to follow speed limits stop
01:03
signs
01:04
driving safely but we don’t have the
01:06
regulations that control
01:07
exactly how we operate our vehicles how
01:10
long we can drive
01:11
when we have to stop and check our
01:13
brakes that sort of thing
