Fatigued Truck Driver Causing a New Mexico 18 Wheeler Wreck

When a New Mexico 18 wheeler wreck is caused by a fatigued truck driver, a victim of this dangerous and often deadly type of auto accident should call our Albuquerque trucking accident lawyers.  This is because New Mexico law and federal regulations under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) require truck drivers to have certain rests/breaks, time limits on driving, and to NOT operate any motor vehicle when feeling tired or fatigued.  Any time a truck driver causes a serious or deadly New Mexico 18 wheeler wreck due to fatigue or sleepiness, victims may be entitled to compensation.  Learn more about why in the post by the Caruso Law Offices, P.C.

Common causes of truck accidents

Driving a commercial truck, and driving in the vicinity of large trucks, in New Mexico can be dangerous. Getting into an accident with this type of vehicle is often more serious than with cars due to the size and weight of trucks. Truck accidents can occur due to negligence on the truck operator's part, but they can also happen due to lack of knowledge many drivers have in regard to how to maneuver around these vehicles. 

Oversized Loads Causing New Mexico Trucking Accidents

Commercial vehicles like semi tractor trailers, flatbeds, 18 wheelers, and other box trucks are meant to haul cargo. Sometimes that could be big cargo such as concrete barriers, large portions of bridges, machinery, or simply large objects. These types of loads are considered "oversized loads." This means that this cargo is either wider, longer, or heaver than what is normally permitted to be hauled by a commercial vehicle. This also means these types of loads are more dangerous and deadly, meaning they are more likely to cause serious or fatal New Mexico trucking accidents in a collision, crash, or other wreck.
