Driving a big rig across New Mexico can make for some exciting and adventurous times, especially when you have the opportunity to travel somewhere new. Part of your ability to enjoy these travels and to uphold your responsibility to your employer to get a product efficiently to its destination is your ability to do so safely. At Caruso Law Offices P.C., we understand the challenges that truckers face and also the risks they may encounter.
Rear end motor vehicle accidents are some of the most common types of motor vehicle accidents. While some rear end motor vehicle accidents could be a mere inconvenience, rear end collisions with large commercial trucks on highways, interstates, and other fast-moving highways could be catastrophic. Victims of New Mexico rear end trucking accidents could be seriously injured or wrongfully killed in these types of big rig crashes. One of the most common injuries are spinal cord injuries which could result in a lifetime of pain and suffering.
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.
