Wrongful Death Causes from New Mexico Trucking Accidents on Interstate 40

Interstate 40 Trucking Accidents Cause Serious Injuries and Wrongful Deaths of Innocent Travelers

One of the most important Interstates in New Mexico, if not the entire United States, is Interstate 40.  It crosses the entire country from California to North Carolina, and travel right through some of New Mexico’s largest and busiest cities such as Albuquerque, New Mexico, Gallup, New Mexico, and Santa Rosa, New Mexico.  It also intersects with Interstate 25, which is another major highway traveling north to south through New Mexico.

This means Interstate 40 is a major trucking route for all of the major companies operating in the United States, including FedEx, United States Parcel Service, J.B. Hunt, Estes, and many others.  This is a major reason why there are so many motor vehicle accidents involving large commercial trucks from these companies, such as tankers, big rigs, 18-wheelers, flatbeds, tandem trailers, tractor trailers, and other trucks.  Due to the high speed and large size of these vehicles, most New Mexico trucking accidents occurring on Interstate 40 result in the death of innocent people in passenger vehicles.

Here at the Caruso Law Offices, P.C., we have handled many of these devastating trucking accident cases resulting in the wrongful death of a victim.  We know how debilitating it can be for a family to lose a loved one in an instant, sometimes even multiple family members in one accident, all due to the negligence of a truck driver or trucking company.  Our experienced New Mexico trucking attorneys hold these negligent parties liable for their mistakes and help victims seek compensation through New Mexico’s wrongful death statutes.  If a loved one has been lost due to a New Mexico trucking accident, call us today for a FREE consultation by dialing (505) 883-5000.

New Mexico Wrongful Death Cases and Trucking Accidents

Like most states, New Mexico has a wrongful death statute which is intended to help families suffering the loss of a loved one to support themselves.  The statute allows for compensation of lost wages, lost earnings, medical expenses, and loss of support/services for the death of a loved one for the family.

Certain family members, particularly immediate family members such as the spouse and children, may commence an action to recover from the negligent trucking company and truck driver what their loved one would have been providing for them had they not been killed.  Dependents of a deceased loved one may also be able to commence a wrongful death action, including parents, adopted children, and siblings.

In addition, New Mexico wrongful death laws also seek to deter and punish a negligent party for their conduct to help prevent future, negligent conduct.  Cases like this result in punitive damages for the deceased’s family, and serve to prove a point to other negligent companies.

If a loved one has been killed in a New Mexico trucking accident along Interstate 40, it is important to get experienced legal representation which a proven track record of success.  We have successfully litigated many cases against some of this country’s largest trucking companies, and offer free case evaluations to those who have similarly had family members taken from them too soon.
