Albuquerque Trucking Accidents Can Result in Very Serious Personal Injuries Resulting in Permanent Disabilities that a Victim Can Obtain Compensation For

Large commercial trucks such as 18 wheelers, big rigs, tandem trailers, flatbeds, tankers, and other types of tractor trailers can cause very serious personal injuries in an Albuquerque trucking accident.  That is because their sheer size is enough to cause forceful impacts even at low speeds because of momentum.  On highways such as the interstates throughout New Mexico, large commercial trucks can do significant damage to anything they collide with which can result in permanent disabilities to victims.
