Fatal Trucking Accidents in New Mexico
Given the size of these big commercial vehicles, there is a far increased likelihood that a large semi-truck collision may result in catastrophic injury. 3,716 accidents involving tractor-trailers were recorded in New Mexico in 2017. State statistics show that 705 of these accidents resulted in injuries while 38 of them resulted in fatalities.
When a family member passes away due to another person's negligence, wrongful death proceedings are started, and the surviving relatives are given compensation. Unfortunately, it's not always easy to determine who is to blame. Even if the accident results in the victim's death, the offender is still accountable. Insurance companies have a history of assigning blame for bad situations to people who are at fault. The responsible party is responsible for covering the deceased's family's accident-related expenses after a tragic auto accident.
