Truck Accident Attorneys

For crash investigations involving 18-wheelers, Electronic Engine Modules (ECM’s) will be brought in to examine how exactly the accident may have happened. ECM’s have the ability to record every facet of data that occurred while the driver was driving the tractor-trailer. From documenting brake time to monitoring idle speed control system, ECM’s are proven to be vital evidence to every investigation.
