Broken Leg from a New Mexico Trucking Accident

New Mexico Trucking Accidents Causing a Broken Leg

A broken leg or fractured leg is a very painful injury. And it will be painful for a long time, because the healing and recovery can take months. Some catastrophic injuries could still cause pain for years after a broken leg. This is because the bones in your leg are very strong. The femur is considered the strongest bone in your body, and it takes a lot of force to break a femur. While this is possible in any type of auto accident, it is incredibly more likely in a New Mexico trucking accident given the sheer size and forces generated in an 18 wheeler crash.

CRASHES WITH STOPPED TRUCKS ON INTERSTATES: ALBUQUERQUE TRUCKING ACCIDENT LAWYER

Albuquerque Trucking Accident Lawyer Explains When Large Trucks Need to Put Up Warnings Such as Signs or Hazards

Not only can a large commercial truck like an 18 wheeler, big rig, semi tractor trailer, or other box truck cause serious injury when it is moving, but it can cause significant injury or even wrongful death when it is not moving. Indeed, when a large commercial truck is disabled on the side of a road it can be a dangerous hazard. This is particularly true on fast moving highways and interstates such as I-40, I-25, and I-10 when collisions by smaller passenger vehicles with stationary trucks could result in catastrophic wrecks. These can be some of the worst types of New Mexico trucking accidents.

NEW MEXICO TRUCKING ACCIDENT AFTER AN 18 WHEELER RAN A STOP SIGN

Injured After an 18 Wheeler Ran a Stop Sign: New Mexico Trucking Accident Lawyer Explains Rights

The most important part about operating a motor vehicle is following the traffic patterns, traffic laws, and traffic control signs or lights. This is especially true around intersections. And this is even more important for drivers of large commercial vehicles such are tractor trailers, 18 wheelers, big rigs, tankers, and other box trucks. One of the most important signs to comply with is a stop sign. A stop sign is important because it preserves the right-of-way in an intersection. It also prevents extremely dangerous side-impact collisions which could result in the wrongful death of a person. This is especially true with large commercial trucks, which a New Mexico trucking accident caused by running a stop sign could very likely result in the wrongful death of innocent individuals. Simply put, innocent people will get seriously hurt or killed if an 18 wheeler ran a stop sign and caused a crash.
