Heavy Vehicle Ride Evaluation

Truck drivers often claim back and lumbar injuries as a result of a single bump or impact from driving. ARCCA engineers have done extensive research to determine the amount of force that a driver might receive in a single incident. In one such case, it was determined that there were not enough g-forces to cause the driver’s claimed back injury while driving under normal conditions and the claimed back injuries were the result of repetitive bouncing, not a single incident.
