Personal Injuries Caused by High Speed Trucking Wrecks in New Mexico

Of all motor vehicle crashes, there may be no worse type of impact than a high speed trucking crash.  When large commercial vehicles such as big rigs, 18 wheelers, tractor trailers, and other trucks collide with other vehicles at a high rate of speed, the results are catastrophic.  Commercial trucking wrecks involved twisted steel, mangled vehicles, and catastrophic injuries.  Incidents can even be worse when there is an explosion or large fire due to the impact or cargo.

Here at the Mark Caruso, our experienced catastrophic injury lawyers handle high speed trucking wrecks due to New Mexico trucking crashes against some of the largest trucking companies in the country, including J.B. Hunt, FedEx, Schneider National, and other large companies.  Many of these high speed collisions occur on interstates, including I-10, I-25, and I-40.  If you or a loved one have been serious injured or wrongfully killed in a New Mexico trucking wreck, call us today by dialing (505) 308-1556.
