The state of Nebraska is prominent for its farming export, contributing significantly to the country’s agricultural production. The state’s output includes corn, beef, soybeans, and pork, which also mean that we have a high number of commercial vehicles traveling on our roads. While the major section of the larger agricultural companies uses large trucks to transport their products to all parts of the country, smaller communities use semi-trucks to move their produce, and so, in total, the trucking industry supports Nebraskan households and contributes in large to the economy.
But unfortunately, commercial vehicles also cause devastating accidents frequently resulting in hundreds of death and many more severe injuries. As a Nebraskan exposed to such imminent danger, it is wise to know all your rights and legal protection available to you. We at

Importance Of ECM And GPS Devices In Commercial Vehicle Accidents
Electronic Control Modules (ECM) and Global Positioning System (GPS) are installed in many commercial vehicles and Department of Transportation-operated vehicles and they can be great assets to your legal case. ECM and GPS are designed with the purpose to check and regulate drivers, and record many components in the truck, such as speed and location. Information on these devices, including the speed at which the driver was moving prior to the collision, can be vital proof to establish blame on the accused party.
These devices also have a record of driving history, which reveals the driver’s habits and repeated acts of negligence. Our experienced attorneys specializing in commercial vehicle accidents recognize the importance of acquiring such crucial data and understand how to skillfully use this data to your advantage in court.
