Prescription Drug Use Resulting in New Mexico Trucking Accident - Albuquerque, NM

There are many people who have prescription drugs.  Something as simple as for blood pressure or acid reflux is commonplace.  Other people may be on stronger prescription drugs, such as for mental health, diabetes, or liver conditions.  All of these are generally safe to drive on.  Unfortunately, some people may suffer an injury and be on powerful prescription drugs for pain management.  These drugs could become dangerous if a person operates a motor vehicle.  Most say do not operate heavy machinery while using these drugs.  However, unfortunately many truck drivers need to make money and will operate vehicles anyway when under powerful pain killers.  These drugs could result in serious New Mexico trucking accidents.

Broadside Collisions with Tractor Trailers Backing Up: Albuquerque Trucking Accident Lawyers Explain

Large commercial vehicles are dangerous no matter how they are operated.  Even very skilled and careful drivers could still cause catastrophic trucking accidents.  One of the most dangerous maneuvers that large tractor trailers, double trailers, tankers, flatbeds, and other big rigs could do is back up.  One of the most dangerous locations for backing up is on the roadway.  While it sounds like it may not make sense for a large truck to backup on a roadway into a driveway, sometimes it is even more dangerous to go head in and then have to backup on the roadway.  Unfortunately, anytime a large truck is backing up it could result in serious New Mexico trucking accidents.  When a truck is backing up across lanes of traffic, that type of trucking accident could be a broadside collision.  This is particularly true at night.  Learn more from our Albuquerque trucking accident lawyers available here.
