How Fraudulent Log Books Affect a Trucking Claim
Truck drivers are often paid based on the number of miles they drive. Unfortunately, drivers often omit certain parts of their trips in order to log less hours, but more miles. By logging fewer hours and more miles, they can get paid more. When a driver is overworked or fatigued, the possibility of causing an accident is much higher. When a truck driver is engaging in negligent behavior that causes an accident, a fraudulent log book can affect the victim’s claim. If the driver omitted certain legs of a cross-country trip or lied about the number of hours he or she has worked, it can make the amount of the victim’s claim much higher.
