LaShawnda Jackson Explains the Use of Event Data Recorders (EDRS) and Accident Reconstruction During a Women In Trucking Webinar
During the Women in Trucking webinar on Wednesday, June 27, LaShawnda Jackson described the importance of EDRs and their use in accident reconstruction in truck accident litigation. Key points addressed during the webinar included:
- Information located in the EDR is crucial for both the driver and company. It is important to take immediate action after an accident to ensure preservation of the EDR data to avoid a potential spoliation of evidence claim.
- The types of crash and pre-crash data that are recorded. EDR data provides objective evidence regarding aspects of the crash that can support or contradict witness testimony.
- Overview of federal regulations and legal standards for using EDR evidence at trial
