New Mexico Truck Accidents

A large truck comes with many inherent dangers when traveling on the road. In America, there are 500,000 semi-truck accidents per year, which cause hundreds of thousands of injuries and maybe even 5,000 fatalities. Around 1,400 of the 43,000 or so vehicle accidents that happen in New Mexico each year include semi-trucks.

An accident involving a commercial vehicle may have been caused by a number of circumstances, including trucking businesses that overwork their drivers and manufacturers that release inferior parts. No matter how difficult your situation may be, the New Mexico truck accident attorneys at our firm are prepared to assist you.

Truck collisions are usually more devastating than incidents involving passenger vehicles since large rigs are substantially heavier than passenger automobiles.
