Large Truck Accidents Can Cause Catastrophic Injuries
Eighteen wheelers are enormous. A fully loaded commercial truck can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. Due to their large size, trucks pose an inherent safety risk to everyone else on the road. To account for the inherent danger, commercial trucking companies have a responsibility to operate their fleet with the utmost level of care and precautions.
Sadly, large truck accidents remain a common occurrence on our roads. According to data from the New Mexico Department of Transportation, eighteen-wheelers are responsible for approximately 12 percent of motor vehicle fatalities in our state. This even though they make up a far smaller percentage of total traffic. Eighteen wheelers also cause a disproportionate share of catastrophic injuries, including:
- Severe lacerations;
- Whiplash and deep tissue damage;
- Broken or fractured bones;
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs);
- Amputations; and
- Spinal cord damage.
How to Hold the Truck Company Accountable
An eighteen-wheeler accident injury claim is a fault-based case. To hold a commercial trucking company responsible for a collision, a plaintiff must prove that the reckless, careless, or otherwise improper conduct on the part of that firm contributed to the crash. All successful 18 wheeler accident injury claims are backed by solid, reliable supporting evidence.
The truck company and its insurer will spare no time and no expense in building a legal defense. Your crash requires an immediate investigation by a top-rated Albuquerque truck accident lawyer. We will help you put together the evidence you need to establish liability and hold a negligent trucker or negligent trucking company accountable.
Recovering Compensation for a Truck Accident
Through a personal injury claim, truck accident victims can seek financial compensation for economic and non economic losses. After a major crash, you need the maximum amount of support to pay your bills and provide for your family. Injuries cause significant hardship. Proper compensation is a must.
Sadly, trucking companies and insurance carriers fight hard to settle for as little as possible. Getting access to full financial compensation is rarely easy. At Caruso Law Offices, P.C., our mission is to help people recover every penny they are owed under state law. You may be entitled to compensation for:
- Automotive repairs/vehicle replacement;
- Ambulance costs and emergency room care;
- Other medical bills and expenses;
- Physical therapy;
- Mental health counseling;
- Loss of current and future income;
- Pain and suffering;
- Emotional harm;
- Permanent disability or disfigurement; and
- Wrongful death of a family member.
