18 Wheeler Wreck Lawyer in New Mexico to Help With Injuries
Help With Injuries After a Crash: 18 Wheeler Wreck Lawyer in New Mexico Can Help
Any type of motor vehicle can result in serious or devastating personal injuries. But trucking accidents with large big rigs, tankers, box trucks, and other semi tractor trailers can result in even worse personal injuries that are more likely to be catastrophic, permanent, and fatal. Victims and their families who have been physically, emotionally, or financially effected by a trucking accident should ask our 18 wheeler wreck lawyer in New Mexico at the Caruso Law Offices, P.C., how we can help protect your rights to compensation.
Cost of an 18 Wheeler Wreck Lawyer in New Mexico
The first thing that most people who have been injured in a tractor trailer accident want to know is how they can afford a lawyer. This is particularly true as medical bills increase and victims start to have mounting lost wages.
The good news is that our 18 wheeler wreck lawyer in New Mexico at the Caruso Law Offices, P.C., accepts cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that victims and their families:
- Do not pay a consultation fee with our office
- Do not pay any upfront money for court costs, expert fees, or litigation expenses (medical records, police reports, mailing, etc.)
- Do not pay for our lawyers to start working on your case
- Do not pay for our lawyers to investigate, commence a lawsuit, make/defend motions, or go to trial, and
- Only pay a percentage of what our lawyers recover a settlement or court award, meaning there are no out-of-pocket expenses.
This means that everyone can afford to have our law firm represent them, as there are no costs associated with an 18 wheeler wreck case.
Common Causes of 18 Wheeler Wreck Cases
There are many common causes of 18 wheeler wreck cases in New Mexico. Most of the common causes are all due to the negligence of another person, business, or government entity. The most common parties who are liable are the truck driver, trucking company, or maintenance team. Most of the common causes can be completely avoided with the proper exercise of reasonable care in the use or operation of a commercial vehicle.
Unfortunately, our 18 wheeler wreck lawyer in New Mexico knows that this is not always done. Some of the most common causes of tractor trailer crashes include the following:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving or drugged driving, including using stimulants like cocaine to stay awake to drive longer
- Reckless driving
- Failure to yield
- Running a stop sign or red light
- Dangerous merge onto a highway
- Improper lane change
- Driver inexperience
- Mechanical failures, and
- Other types of negligent errors.
How to Prove Your Trucking Accident Case
Most people think that they need to prove their trucking accident or other personal injury case “beyond a reasonable doubt.” That is not true. That standard is just for criminal matters and come very high burdens of specific and unique claims. But a trucking accident case or other personal injury case only requires that a victim and/or his family demonstrate that, by a preponderance of the evidence they are correct as to liability and have established damages.
This standard of a preponderance of the evidence is demonstrating that it is more likely than not that the victim is correct and the defendant is liable. This means that a victim only needs to establish his or her family by 51%.
