Semi-Truck Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Motorcyclist Critically Hurt in Crash with Semi at Carlisle Blvd & Claremont AveThere is a much greater chance of sustaining catastrophic injuries in an accident involving a big tractor-trailer. In the United States, there are more than 388,000 trucking accidents reported each year, accounting for nearly 6.5% of all reported crashes nationwide. There are injuries in an estimated 28% of these crashes, with 11% resulting in fatalities. If you were hurt in a semi-truck crash, contact an attorney right away. 

Semi-truck drivers and trucking companies that employ them must take extra care and follow stringent guidelines in order to prevent serious collisions. These rigs weigh much more than passenger cars, and truck accidents nearly always have more severe consequences than a typical crash. A transportation company that cuts corners on employing and teaching drivers, adhering to safety rules, and maintaining their trucks put the lives of people utilizing New Mexico's highways in danger.

When a semi-truck accident is the result of negligence—whether on the part of the semi-truck driver, their company, or another party—injured victims have a legal claim for compensation. Truck accident cases are different from other types of motor vehicle accident lawsuits, and they demand specialized legal knowledge, swift action to preserve evidence, familiarity with the transportation industry, and familiarity with the insurance companies that protect trucking companies.
