A: A thorough and timely investigation is important in all accident cases - and this is especially true in commercial truck accident cases.  The investigation must focus on not just on what happened, by also why it happened. These answers sometimes can be found in the driver's log, where the particular driver's records are maintained.  The log should reveal when, where, how far and for how long the driver was driving on the day of the accident. It will be important to determine whether the log was kept properly and whether the driver was within the allotted hours of driving time when the accident occurred. The maintenance records of the commercial truck also can provide answers to how and why an accident happened.
