Caruso Law Offices, PC: Committed Truck Accident Attorneys in Ruidoso, NM

With over 35 years of experience representing truck accident victims in Ruidoso, NM, the Caruso Law Office, PC attorneys have watched this Lincoln County, New Mexico city grow tremendously from the once sleepy mountain town it reflected.

From its growth comes additional truck traffic bringing materials for building large housing additions, condos, retail outlets, and village necessities to expand the dwindling water supply that is unable to keep up with its growth. With larger trucks traversing the area regularly, the small village is suddenly in danger of traffic pattern disruptions caused by accidents. When our community is at risk for truck accident injuries, our attorneys are standing by to help communicate their options and deliver top-notch legal representation.

Tourism: A Growing Economic Factor in Ruidoso, NM

Neighboring the spectacular Lincoln National Forest, and accounting for just over 8,000 residents, Ruidoso, NM welcomes tourists from near and far to enjoy the resort ski town’s slopes, Ski Apache, located in the Sierra Blanca mountain range. Likewise, the Inn of the Mountain Gods delivers a powerful economic impact with its golf course, hotel and casino.

The employees, local visitors, and tourists enjoy the combined beauty and entertainment provided by the resort, and spend countless dollars exploring the innumerable recreational options put forth by the Mescalero Apache Tribe.

The Dangers of Semi-Truck Traffic Throughout the Region

With expansion and opportunity comes more truck traffic to the region, creating vulnerable circumstances for our Ruidoso, NM community.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety stated that last year alone, the annual costs resulting from truck accidents reflected:

  • $112 Billion in property damage, injury, and death

These costs are directly related to the size, weight, and volume of these behemoth trucks interacting with smaller, passenger vehicles. When a collision occurs, the injuries, costs, and often the lives taken have an enormous impact on families and society alike.

The U.S. Department of Transportation and their Federal Highway Administration segment provide clear statistics for truck traffic, including:

  • Semi-trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds when fully loaded with cargo
  • Over 11 million semi-trucks are registered in the United States to both individuals and companies
  • Nearly 15,000 million tons of freight were transported by semi-trucks last year throughout the U.S.; Totaling 73% of all the cargo shipped

When Truck Accident Injuries Become Wrongful Death Cases

Wrongful death can occur the moment the truck accident happens, or long after the injury is sustained. These delicate and difficult cases require a veteran attorney to prove, so that you can hold the negligent party responsible for the loss of your loved one.

Survivors can pursue financial recovery when we are able to prove that a truck accident caused their loved one’s death. We can help your family uncover the details of your case, too.

In New Mexico, there is a specific order of survivors who can file a case.

They are, in order:

  • Spouse
  • Children
  • Grandchildren
  • Parents
  • Siblings

The statute of limitation in New Mexico for filing a wrongful death claim is three years from the date of your love one’s death. We recommend meeting with our firm as quickly as possible after the accident, so we can preserve evidence and testimony going forward to help solidify your case.

If you have lost a loved one in a truck accident, you may be entitled to:

  •  Funeral and burial costs
  • Medical bills accumulated prior to death, or pain and suffering endured prior to death – where applicable in each category
  • Lost wages and earnings previously provided by the decedent
