The trucking industry is regulated by state and federal legislation overseen by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Truck drivers are expected to limit the number of hours they drive in a given day, maintain their vehicles, and adhere to traffic laws. When truck drivers speed excessively, drive over their daily limit, or fail to maintain their truck, they can be held financially liable for accidents they cause as a result. At the Law Offices of Jeffrey M. Bloom, we work closely with accident investigators in holding negligent truck drivers at fault in truck accident injury cases. We measure skid marks, analyze data from a truck’s GPS system and black box recorder, and gather eyewitness statements. After reconstructing a truck accident, we can determine if a truck driver was speeding, fatigued, or distracted while talking on a cell phone or texting.

Personal injury attorney Jeffrey M. Bloom recovers financial damages for people suffering from the following kinds of injuries sustained in a tractor trailer accident:
Since most injuries in truck accidents are serious, the cost of a truck accident can be significant. At the Law Offices of Jeffrey M. Bloom, we ask medical economists and life care planners to project costs related to medical treatment, surgery, physical therapy, medical equipment, and lost wages across the lifetime of our client. When insurers representing a trucking company attempt to minimize the effect of accident injuries, we ask medical experts to evaluate our client and verify the scope and nature of their injuries.
Insurers representing trucking companies have a team of accident investigators they deploy to accident sites to begin collecting evidence. They realize that if they can shift as much blame on to you, the injury victim, as possible, they can reduce the amount of damages they have to pay. That’s why it’s important to talk to a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to protect your rights and begin the process of holding truck drivers accountable.
