Tracking your safety data is vital to fighting nuclear verdicts. If your company is taken to court, your safety data could possibly save you from a nuclear verdict, but how?
One of the best shields your company can have in court is data. Data like dashcam footage, fleet maintenance data and driver data could save you from a nuclear verdict. If you are not tracking your safety data, your organization could be subjected to the assumption of negligence in court.
Safety data can look like this:
Dashcam footage: Duel-facing dashcams provide the court with the most data possible and can answer any important questions about the driver’s possible distractions during an accident.
Fleet maintenance data: If the accident involves malfunctioning equipment –such as brakes—the court will want to know the status of the equipment at the time of the accident. Collecting and maintaining fleet maintenance data is crucial in proving your company was not negligent in causing the accident.
Driver data: Your drivers’ data is important in the fight against nuclear verdicts. Not only past driving behaviors, but current driving behaviors will be important in court. What kind of behaviors? Things like speeding and harsh braking (or lack thereof) are crucial to note.
