Truck Drivers Killed in New Mexico by Another Truck Driver’s Negligence

Wrongful Deaths Due to a Truck Driver’s Negligence Can Result in Compensation for the Family of the Loved One Lost

Commercial trucks such as big rigs, 18 wheelers, tandem trailers, tractor trailers, tankers, flatbeds, and other large vehicles can be very dangerous and deadly when the driver behind the wheel is negligent.  New Mexico has some of the busiest trucking routes in the country, including interstate 10, interstate 40, and intestate 25.  Some of the largest trucking companies in the United States, including Schneider, FedEx, Swift, Estes, and other carriers use these routes throughout New Mexico.  Many of these truckers live in many places across the country, including in Ontario, CA and the surrounding area.

Unfortunately, even if you are a safe driver, another driver may not be.  Our experienced lawyers at the Caruso Law Offices, P.C. know that very careful truck drivers driving through New Mexico can be injured by other truck drivers who are not as careful, as experienced, and as well trained for the large commercial vehicle they are driving.  This can result in catastrophic truck crashes resulting in the wrongful death of a victim.  If you or a loved one have been seriously injured or killed in a New Mexico trucking crash caused by a truck driver, call us today for a FREE consultation by dialing (505) 883-5000 to learn how we can protect your rights to compensation.

Trucking Crashes Causing Wrongful Deaths

Large commercial trucks are the most dangerous vehicles on the road.  They are big, move fast, have many blindspots, and can generate a lot of force.  This means they are more likely to cause a wrongful death when they are involved in a trucking crash.

Families of the loved one killed in a New Mexico trucking accident can bring what is known as a wrongful death lawsuit.  A wrongful death lawsuit is meant to compensation the family for the loss of their loved one’s contributions to the family, including love and affection, income, dependency, and other services.  A wrongful death lawsuit is also meant to punish the negligent defendant for causing such injuries.  The pain and suffering of the loved one may also be compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit.

Wrongful Death Caused in New Mexico of an Out-of-State Driver

Unfortunately, it is a very common scenario where a truck driver kisses his or her family goodbye to go to work driving across America and never comes home because he or she is killed in a trucking accident in another state.  New Mexico is a common place for this fatal scenario to play out, because the interstates in New Mexico help transfer trucking routes north to south or east to west.

When an out-of-state driver is killed in New Mexico, he or she will be able to commence a lawsuit in New Mexico where the accident occurred.  This if true of his or her family, who may similarly commence an action for wrongful death in New Mexico.
