The federal government requires every commercial truck driver to record miles traveled and hours of service in a logbook each day. Drivers are also limited by federal regulations to a certain number of driving hours in succession and within 24 hours. During our decades of experience representing auto accident victims in Florida, we have found that drivers and trucking companies sometimes fail to properly report time, or they falsify their logbook records if drivers have not been complying with regulations.
It is critically important to obtain logbook records as soon as possible following an accident to prevent a driver or trucking company from falsifying information after the crash.
At Babbitt, Johnson, Osborne & Le Clainche, P.A., we fully investigate all accident claims we take on independently. We have a full-time investigator — a former career police officer — and two paralegals on staff who collect, document and preserve evidence for each motor vehicle case we handle. We can check the logbook against information from the truck's GPS unit or event data recorders.
