Gathering, Preserving, and Using Non-Traditional Sources of Electronic Data in Your Trucking Case


Presented By: DRI's Trucking Law Committee

Attendees will hear from an experienced Professional Engineer with extensive experience in crash data retrieval and analysis and from a seasoned trucking lawyer regarding non-traditional sources of electronic data that can be used to vigorously defend motor carriers and drivers in your trucking cases. Specifically, attendees will learn about the electronic data (other than a passenger vehicle’s airbag control module (ACM) or a commercial vehicle’s electronic control module (ECM)) that may be gathered following a collision, including infotainment systems, collision avoidance systems, ABS systems, traffic signal data loggers, and more. Additionally, the speakers will discuss best practices associated with the collection and preservation of these non-traditional sources of electronic data and how you can use the data obtained from such non-traditional sources in your trucking cases. 

 Who Should Attend: 

  • Young attorneys and transportation specialists and practitioners who are new to trucking or general litigation
  • Practicing trial lawyers handling regulation-heavy trucking litigation and/or dealing with pre-suit and/or post-suit vehicle investigations on a regular basis
  • Trucking industry representatives, risk managers, brokers, and/or claims adjusters seeking to enhance their knowledge regarding the non-traditional electronic data that can be obtained from a vehicle (passenger and commercial) following a collision, the collection and preservation of such data, and how such data can be used in a trucking case.

What Will You Learn?:

  • The evolution of non-traditional sources of electronic data and the type of data that can be captured from such non-traditional sources
  • The best policies and practices for collecting non-traditional sources of electronic data following a collision
  • An overview of what the data extracted from non-traditional electronic data can show you about the vehicle(s) and driver(s) involved in the collision
  • How you can use the data obtained from these non-traditional sources to rigorously defend motor carriers and drivers and your trucking case.
