Attorney Michael Maggiano Attends TruckLaw Symposium

Trucking law is a dynamic field. Just as the Federal Motor Carrier regulations evolve with current technology, advances in modern computerization have changed truck accident investigation.

Michael Maggiano, a member of the Academy of Truck Accident Attorneys, participated in the 2022 TruckLaw Symposium in Austin, Texas, from October 6 through October 8, 2022. The symposium program covered many areas of digital evidence, including the Event Data Recorder (which measures vehicle speed, engine RPMs, brake applications and steering angles).

Electronic logging devices are now common in long distance trucking to track hours of service.  The technology is helpful to evaluate whether the driver has been behind the wheel longer than is permitted by the regulations and may be driving tired.

Then there is the E-Discovery of the company laptop provided to the trucker, as well as communication data contained in his cell phone.

The modern truck accident lawyer must have a top-notch command of all advanced technology. Michael Maggiano is at the cutting edge. He works with the leading electronic evidence experts in the field to enable consistently winning representation.
