Severe Back Injuries Caused by Albuquerque Trucking Accidents Can Result in a Lifetime of Debilitating Pain and Suffering
New Mexico has some of the busiest interstate highways throughout the United States. These interstates help transport cargo from east to west and north to south throughout New Mexico. The big interstates include I-40, I-25, and I-10. Major trucking companies such as J.B. Hunt, FedEx, Estes, Ryder, and many others use New Mexico highways to move this cargo. Albuquerque, New Mexico is one of the larger hubs of trucking because I-40 and I-25 meet here, making Albuquerque a major route changer where truck drivers can decide to change from an east or west direction to a north or south direction.
Given that Albuquerque, New Mexico is a rather large city with a large population, the congestion on the roadways with passenger vehicles combined with large commercial trucks creates a serious threat to the health and safety of all occupants on the roadways.
