Albuquerque Semi-Truck Collisions
Accidents involving large semi-trucks are often the most catastrophic. There are millions of commercial vehicles traveling roadways in the United States each year. These vehicles weigh thousands of pounds and can devastate a smaller passenger vehicle.
These massive vehicles require 20 to 40 times greater distance to come to a stop than a typical car. Truckers often have to work long hours at a time, causing them to be inattentive and make crucial makes. Those injured in a crash involving a semi-truck may be able to recover damages related to the accident.
