All trucking accidents involving a big rig, 18 wheeler, box truck, or other large semi tractor trailer can result in serious personal injury or wrongful death. This is because a truck is larger, heavier, and therefore has more momentum and force in an impact than a smaller passenger vehicle. More momentum means more force that must be dispersed into whatever that truck hits. One of the most dangerous things about 18 wheelers is that it can gain much more momentum on a fast moving highway or thruway like I-40, I-25, or I-10. This means that an interstate trucking accident in New Mexico is likely to cause significant personal injury or even wrongful death.
