Albuquerque Trucking Accident Lawyers Explain Common Catastrophic Injuries caused by New Mexico Trucking Accidents

Commercial vehicles like 18 wheelers, semi tractor trailers, double trailers, tankers, and other box trucks are large and heavy.  This means they generate considerable momentum even at low speeds.  But the truth is that most big rigs are driven on fast-moving highways and interstates like I-40, I-25, and I-10.  After all, trucking is about transporting goods throughout the country in the fastest way possible.  This means large box trucks and 18 wheelers generate massive amounts of momentum.  When a truck hits another vehicle, this momentum is dispersed into whatever is struck.  This is what typically results in catastrophic injuries caused by New Mexico trucking accidents.
