Wide Turns Causing New Mexico Trucking Accidents

Large commercial trucks like big rigs, tankers, semi tractor trailers, double trailers, and other box trucks require additional space to maneuver.  This is obvious given their large size.  One of the most common maneuvers that big rigs need additional space to maneuver are turns.  This is why many large trucks make a looping turn which starts in the opposite direction of the turn and then loops back to the turning side.  This wide turn allows the truck's trailer to clear whatever curb or edge there is on the roadway.  But with wider turns comes greater margins for error and the possibility for a collision.  If you or a loved one have been injured in a New Mexico trucking accident due to wide turns, please ask our Albuquerque trucking accident lawyers for a FREE case review.

New Mexico drivers who speed often try to escape justice

If you're like most New Mexico motorists, you may have caught yourself traveling a mile or two over the speed limit at some point in your driving career. You hopefully tried to avoid making the same mistake again, especially because exceeding a posted limit can get you into a heap of legal trouble. Not only might a police officer pull you over, you are also at risk for collision if you speed.

Why You Need a New Mexico Auto Accident Lawyer if You Live Out-of-State and Were Hurt in a New Mexico Auto Accident

Many times people are traveling through New Mexico and are hurt in New Mexico auto accidents.  Usually people are from Arizona, Texas, or California and are hurt while they commute back and forth from work, especially oil workers in New Mexico.  Other times people are hurt on their way to and from vacations or visiting with family.  Many truck drivers are injured by other truck drivers or motorists, and most of these injured truck drivers live in California like Upland or San Bernardino and have to travel through New Mexico.  

Causes of Rear End Accidents: Albuquerque Auto Accident Lawyers

We all know that, generally speaking, the vehicle that rear ends another vehicle is usually at fault.  This means the behind vehicle will likely be liable for personal injuries or damage to the front vehicle.  The law is made this way because New Mexico law requires that following vehicles do not follow too closely and leave another "compromised space" or car-lengths behind another vehicle to safely stop.  Unfortunately, rear end collisions are some of the most common collisions on New Mexico roads, highways, and interstates.  Learn why from our Albuquerque auto accident lawyers here.

Wrongful Death in New Mexico Trucking Accidents

It is said that the ultimate personal injury is a wrongful death.  While there are some other types of personal injuries which might create more pain and suffering, disability, and agony, a wrongful death caused by a New Mexico trucking accident is irreversible.  The impact is devastating to a family who loses a loved one, and the hardship on the victim's family, friends, and dependents is destructive.  If you lost a loved one in any New Mexico auto accident or trucking accident, even if you do not live in New Mexico, learn why our Albuquerque wrongful death lawyers can help at the Caruso Law Offices, P.C. available here.

"Didn't See You": Why Blind Spots are Not Excuses to New Mexico Trucking Accidents

Large commercial vehicles like semi tractor trailers, tankers, double tandem trailers, big rigs, and other box trucks all have one thing in common: Massive blind spots.  Yes, they have additional mirrors and some newer trucks have blind spot warning and support systems.  However, no matter the protections, blind spots on a large truck are dangerous and can result in serious personal injuries.  One of the common excuses for a blind spot trucking accident is that "I didn't see you," with "I" being the truck driver and "you" being the smaller, passenger vehicle.  Learn why this is not a defense from our New Mexico trucking accident lawyers here.
