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.

Brachial Plexus Injuries in NM Auto Accidents: Albuquerque Auto Accident Lawyer

Your body is comprised of an extensive matrix of nerves. These channels of nerves are message superhighways from your extremity to your brain. Signals such as feeling pressure, temperature, moisture, pain, and motor function are all relayed back and forth from whatever part on your body is sensing that to your brain. This is primarily done through your brain and spinal cord which are your central nervous system, and your peripheral nerves which brain out of your spinal cord and extend all the way to the tips of your fingers and toes. Our Albuquerque auto accident lawyer knows that one of the most important areas of nerves branching out of your spinal cord is your brachial plexus which controls the sensory and motor perception of your arm.

Tailgating Causing New Mexico Trucking Accidents

Tailgating, or following too closely, is an unnecessary and generally aggressive behavior which places people unnecessarily at risk for serious injury. It is also downright dangerous. This is because a vehicle that is tailgating reduces to time to react to the lead vehicle's actions and reduces the distance to stop or maneuver to avoid other vehicles. This is especially true when the tailgater is the driver of a large commercial vehicle like a semi tractor trailer, 18 wheeler, or tanker which already require more time to react and more distance to stop. As a result, it is common for tailgating and following too closely to result in serious or fatal New Mexico trucking accidents.

How Do I Know if I have a Brain Injury? Albuquerque Auto Accident Lawyer Shares Four TBIs

Any type of motor vehicle accident could cause significant injuries, especially motorcycle accidents or 18 wheeler wrecks. One of the most significant types of injuries from an auto accident is a traumatic brain injury, or TBI. The CDC reports that there are almost 3 million emergency department visits, hospitalizations, or deaths due to TBIs. Unfortunately, this is also one of the most difficult types of injuries to detect, treat, and cure. The problem is that a brain injury does not always show up on an imaging study. A brain injury is not like a broken bone that an x-ray will normally detect, or a torn muscle that an MRI scan will reveal. Although it is true that some traumatic brain injuries are immediately visible, many brain injuries may take months to show up on an imaging test. Other brain injuries may never show up.

Wrongful Death After New Mexico 18 Wheeler Wreck

Important Information About a Wrongful Death After a New Mexico 18 Wheeler Wreck

A New Mexico 18 wheeler wreck is likely to cause a wrongful death, especially on fast-moving highways and interstates like I-40, I-25, and I-10. This is because of the fast speed and heavy weight of a tractor trailer which turn these vehicles into deadly battering rams. If a big rig crash causes the wrongful death of an occupant of another vehicle, under New Mexico statute 41-2-1, the trucking company and truck driver may be liable for the damages resulting in the personal injuries and wrongful death. This ensures that a victim's rights are protected.
