Hundreds Of Successful Results In Trucking Accident Cases

New Mexico is a busy corridor for commercial trucks carrying goods throughout the Southern and Western United States. These vehicles present serious risks to occupants of lighter, smaller cars, SUVs, pickup trucks and motorcycles. Because of their size and weight, accidents involving big rigs and commercial vans typically result in catastrophic or fatal injuries.

How Does The Conduct Of Truck Drivers Contribute To An Accident?

Commercial drivers must develop specialized skills and remain alert while behind the wheel to safely pilot big-rigs, delivery vans, mail trucks, dump trucks and other commercial vehicles. However, many accidents occur because commercial truck drivers are:

  • Texting or talking on the phone
  • Impaired by alcohol or drugs
  • Fatigued
  • Reckless and speeding
  • Untrained and unqualified
  • Non-compliant with the federal motor vehicle carrier act safety regulations

Don’t Let Truck Corporations Get Away With Negligence

Commercial drivers must develop specialized skills and remain alert while behind the wheel to safely pilot big-rigs, delivery vans, mail trucks, dump trucks and other commercial vehicles. However, many accidents occur because commercial truck drivers are:

  • Texting or talking on the phone
  • Impaired by alcohol or drugs
  • Fatigued
  • Reckless and speeding
  • Untrained and unqualified
  • Non-compliant with the federal motor vehicle carrier act safety regulations

 

Corporations are responsible for the actions of their drivers. Often, supervisors tolerate or encourage long-haul drivers who speed, use drugs while driving or forego sleep to make deliveries by unrealistic deadlines. A company’s cost-cutting measures can result in poorly maintained fleets and inadequately trained drivers. These businesses are also liable for overweight or unbalanced loads that cause a trailer to jackknife, overturn, make unsafe lane changes or fail to stop in time. When you take legal action against a negligent trucking company, you are holding them accountable for their dangerous actions.
