Understanding Truck Accident Causes and Injuries in Carrizozo, NM

Traveling next to a semi-truck in a passenger vehicle can cause anxiety, even when everyone is driving safely. The sheer size of an 18-wheeler can be intimidating, and for good reason.

The Federal Highway Administration, which operates as a branch of the U.S. Department of Transportation lists that:

  • Semi-trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds while traveling at full capacity
  • On average, passenger vehicles weigh between 3,000 and 4,000 pounds

Besides the weight differential, the height and ground clearance associated with semi-trucks can cause severe damage to passenger vehicles too, leaving the occupants of the vehicles severely injured.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety lists common truck accident causes, including:

  • Loaded trailers require up to 40% more room to stop than passenger vehicles
  • Weather conditions, including wet and slippery roads, expand that percentage considerably
  • Poorly maintained brakes
  • Driver fatigue, including drivers who violate the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration hours of service regulations
  • Speeding or reckless driving
  • Drunk or impaired driving

No matter the cause of the accident, once the devastating crash occurs, our attorneys will help you and your family get the answers and financial recovery you need to begin healing fully.

Common injuries that occur during a truck accident can include:

  • Broken bones
  • Internal injuries and bleeding
  • Loss of limbs
  • Loss of mobility
  • Neck and spinal injuries
  • Partial or full paralysis
  • Rib and torso injuries
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Wrongful death

These injuries can require long-term medical care and treatment that leave you out of work, and subsequently without an income. These important components can lead to a serious disruption in your quality of life. Adding significant insult to injury, trucking companies, their attorneys, and insurance companies will reject your claim outright without an attorney by your side. Allow us to take the lead in pursuing the financial recovery you deserve, so you can focus on healing and resuming valuable relationships with your family.
