Large commercial vehicles play a vital role in the New Mexico economy. They can be seen at all hours of the day racing along Routes 54 and 70, as well as pulling into downtown Alamogordo to drop off or pick up goods. Unfortunately, our Alamogordo truck accident lawyers know that these vehicles can cause serious damage when they run into a smaller passenger car, motorcycle, or another type of vehicle.
At Caruso Law Offices, P.C., our team has assisted many people involved in these types of serious, catastrophic and fatal trucking accidents. Whether you have suffered injuries or a loved one has perished in a crash, you might be entitled to compensation. Talk with an Alamogordo truck accident lawyer today to learn more.
One thing we know based on our experience is that no two truck accidents are quite the same. There are countless reasons why a truck might collide with other vehicles on the road, but truck driver negligence is often a cause.
Truck drivers are negligent when they fail to use adequate care or when they break a traffic safety law. Some of the more common reasons include:
In other situations, a defect in a truck part could cause an accident, such as brake failure or tire blowout. The party responsible could be a manufacturer or a mechanic who worked on the truck.
Our lawyers have assisted many clients suffering from serious injuries, including:
These injuries require immediate treatment so that the accident victim has a chance to make a full recovery.
Sadly, many people also die in truck accidents each year. They can die at the scene of the accident or succumb days later from fatal wounds suffered in a wreck. We want family members to know that they are not alone during this difficult time; let us stand by you in your quest for justice.
The amount of compensation our clients receive will depend on many factors. Generally, the more serious or permanent the injury, the greater the financial recovery. However other factors come into play, such as our client’s degree of fault.
At Caruso Law Offices, we have helped clients receive money for the following:
When a loved one dies, then surviving family members might seek compensation as part of a wrongful death action. This type of claim arises out of the accident that killed your loved one, but it seeks to compensate surviving family members for certain losses, such as the loss of the deceased’s income, as well as mental anguish and loss of companionship.
Truck accident cases differ dramatically from regular fender benders. Indeed, truck accidents are their own area of law distinct from car wrecks. Our lawyers can help our clients in many ways, including:
Truck accident cases take quite a bit of time to build up properly. And truck companies are not eager to offer fair compensation to injured victims.
