Semi-Truck Collisions in New Mexico

Socorro, NM - Couple Killed In Semi Crash At US-60 & NM-304Large commercial vehicles are well-known to cause severe injuries in the event of a crash. These vehicles require much more distance to come to a complete stop, making them particularly dangerous for occupants of smaller passenger vehicles. Sadly, many people are killed in crashes involving semi-trucks each year.

There are around 1,400 crashes involving semi-trucks each year in the state of New Mexico, accounting for 3 percent of all reported collisions. While they are not as common, they are often much more severe. In some cases, surviving family members may be able to contact a New Mexico wrongful death attorney to see if they’re eligible for compensation.
