Albuquerque, NM Truck Accident Lawyer Explains What Happens When a Fatigued Truck Driver Causes an 18 Wheeler Wreck

One of the more common ways that a New Mexico truck accident could occur is when a truck driver is fatigued.  Driving while fatigued is dangerous for any type of driver, but that is particularly true for operators of large commercial vehicles which are inherently dangerous even with the best of drivers.  Fatigued driving slows down reaction speed which increases the distance a truck would need to stop.  Fatigue is also more than just feeling sleepy or tired, but fatigue could also mean muscular fatigue in handling the wheel, shifting, and securing cargo.  If you or a loved one were seriously injured or wrongfully killed in an Albuquerque, NM trucking accident, ask our experienced lawyers what rights you might have if the truck driver was fatigued.


Truck Driver Fatigue is Dangerous and Deadly: New Mexico Trucking Accident Lawyer Explains Why

Box trucks like semi tractor trailers, big rigs, 18 wheelers, and other large commercial trucks are very dangerous when they are operated with the due care and attention they need. It is just a simple fact that they are large, heavy, and more difficult to maneuver than a smaller, passenger vehicle. They take longer to slow down and are harder to turn within a narrow space. These are just simply facts. This is why a fatigued truck driver who has a delayed reaction, or no react at all, can turn one of these dangerous big rigs into a deadly 18 wheeler causing a fatal New Mexico trucking accident.
