New Mexico Semi-Truck Accidents

Vado, NM - One Hospitalized in Crash with Semi-Truck on I-10In an accident involving a large tractor-trailer, the likelihood of suffering catastrophic injuries is much higher. More than 388,000 trucking accidents are reported in the United States each year, making up about 6.5% of all registered crashes in the country. An estimated 28% of these collisions result in injuries, and 11% of them end in fatalities. Contact a lawyer as soon as possible if you were hurt in a collision with a semi-truck.

Truck drivers and the businesses that hire them must exercise exceptional caution and adhere to strict regulations to maintain the safety of the road. Truck accidents are known to result in more severe effects than regular crashes because these rigs weigh far more than passenger automobiles. A transportation company that takes shortcuts when hiring and training drivers, following safety regulations, and keeping their trucks endangers the lives of motorists who use New Mexico's highways.
