New Mexico Truck Crash Lawyer

New Mexico Trucking Accidents

Attorney for Car Wrecks Involving Commercial Trucks in New Mexico

The trucking industry is responsible for transporting a staggering 70 percent of the freight that gets moved in the United States. While commercial trucks are a vital component of our economy and modern way of living, commercial trucks are also responsible for causing devastating auto accidents.

Crashes involving semi-trucks, 18-wheelers, and flatbed trucks often result in serious injuries and expensive property damage. Truck accident victims are often unaware of their legal options in a situation like this, so they do not take appropriate action to protect their rights. They end up agreeing to an insurance settlement that is grossly inadequate or waiting too long to file a claim against the trucking company or other at-fault party.

Evidence We May Use When Building a Truck Injury Claim in New Mexico

At our firm, we know that a truck accident injury case is only as strong as the evidence backing the claim. We also understand that getting the evidence we need requires swift, deliberate action.

We may use a variety of sources of evidence to build the strongest claim possible, including:

  • Event data recorder (EDR) information about the truck driver's actions during and immediately preceding the accident
  • The truck driver's electronic logbook
  • Dash camera and traffic camera videos
  • The trucking company's hiring policies, procedures, and employee records
  • Forensic evidence from the crash site
  • Your medical records and statements from your doctors
  • Expert testimony from vocational rehabilitation specialists, accident reconstructionists, medical experts, and other respected professionals

Holding the At-Fault Party Accountable for a Serious Truck Crash

Many truck accidents are the direct result of negligence or carelessness on the part of the trucking company or truck driver. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, fatigued driving, distracted driving, and violating New Mexico traffic laws are all common causes of truck wrecks. Trucking companies may also act recklessly by encouraging truckers to violate Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations or hiring drivers with a history of unsafe driving or substance abuse.

Mr. Kennedy and his team are committed to helping you hold the liable party or parties accountable. We will also fight to get you the financial compensation you need to cover damages such as medical and/or funeral costs, lost income, and vehicle damage.
