Heavy trucking equipment failures can occur at any time. From mechanical breakdowns to catastrophic engine failure, the inability of the heavy trucking equipment to perform as it is supposed to do can lead to disastrous consequences. When an accident occurs, there are various professional organizations that specialize in providing services that take the blame off the truck driver and place it on the trucking equipment manufacturer. Forensics Engineering Services specializes in providing heavy trucking equipment failures services that incorporate data recovery from damaged or failed to truck engines.
The trucking industry is a large part of America’s commerce and supports thousands of jobs. The large trucking companies control much of the nation’s food delivery business. They have also become integral parts of the delivery process of medical supplies, sporting goods, petroleum and other transportation equipment. Due to the trucking industry’s reliance on reliable trucks, maintenance for these vehicles and the large number of faulty, out-of-date, or broken pieces that result from those maintenance activities, there is a high risk of injury or fatality for truck drivers and truck passengers.
When an accident occurs, there are usually only two events that can occur. One possibility is that the truck carrying the load either backs up and crushes a parked car, or that it collides with another motor vehicle. Neither of these events is likely when operating a commercial truck, but the results can still be devastating. Damages from a collision can include road damage, bodily injury, property damage, and even death. When this happens, it is important that the trucking industry has a detailed log detailing every aspect of each trucking accident, including the truck drivers, truck companies, and trucking equipment involved.
Many of today’s leading forensic scientists use truck tracking to determine the cause of an accident. In doing so, they are able to pinpoint the most likely location of the source of the vehicle’s failure, if it was caused by negligence or another factor. They then use sophisticated data analysis and computer modeling to determine who is responsible. By using trucking data and forensic science, insurance companies and law enforcement officials can better manage accidents and crimes that involve trucks. Even trucking managers and trucking owners use truck tracking and forensic analysis to make sure that their fleets remain on the roads.
If an investigation into a trucking accident does not reveal the root cause of the problem, there are several options available to prevent further accidents and keep the fleet on the road. One option is to outfit each vehicle with a GPS tracking device and software that allow the management to pre-determine and then solve any problems that may arise as a result of driver distraction, heavy traffic, or mechanical or driver error.
