One of the most violent types of New Mexico trucking accidents is a jackknife trucking accident. This is when a large commercial vehicle has the trailer (where the cargo is) and the cabin (where the driver sits) fold into itself to form a right angle. The appearance of the cabin and trailer cutting into itself at an angle resembles an old folding "jackknife" which is why this type of trucking accident is known as a jackknife trucking accident. This can be one of the most deadly and devastating types of New Mexico trucking accidents that victims may be entitled to compensation for their injuries.
The power and force in New Mexico trucking accidents can cause significant and catastrophic injuries. Many times, these surgeries require significant surgeries.
