Disabled Trucks Violating FMCSA: Albuquerque Trucking Accident Lawyers

It may sound not possible to collide with a large commercial vehicle and claim that you did not see it, but it is a very real and dangerous possibility.  This is particularly true on dark roads and fast-moving roads, particularly thruways and interstates like I-40, I-25, and I-10.  This is why federal regulations require that disabled commercial vehicles to take special precautions in having flashers, warning signs, and other devices to ensure that oncoming vehicles do not collide with unseen and disabled trucks.  If you or a loved one were seriously injured, or if a loved one was wrongfully killed, please ask our Albuquerque trucking accident lawyers how we can help protect your rights.

I REAR ENDED A DISABLED TRUCK WITHOUT ITS FLASHERS ON: WHAT ARE MY RIGHTS?

New Mexico Big Rig Wrecks With a Disabled Truck May be the Fault of the Truck Driver Under FMCSA Violations

If we rear end a parked or disabled vehicle, we know that most of the time it will be our fault. It can even be embarrassing, especially if we rear end the vehicle and we are the ones that get hurt. However, if that disabled vehicle is a large commercial truck, we may actually not be at fault and we may be entitled to compensation for our personal injuries. This is because large commercial trucks like big rigs, 18 wheelers, tankers, semi tractor trailers, and other large box trucks must use hazards, markers, and other warning devices to protect other vehicles on the roadway from rear ending them. If they fail to do so and there is a collision, the victims could be entitled to compensation.
