New Mexico 18 Wheeler Wrecks Can Cause Serious Injuries to Other Driver Truck Drivers Who are Co-drivers, Sleeping in the Cabin, or being Taxied Back Home

When we think of trucking crashes, the most common victims we think are those in passenger vehicles.  And for good reason, because passenger vehicles are much smaller than a large commercial truck and occupants of passenger vehicles usually get serious injured, maimed, or killed.  But when we think of trucking crashes, we do not normally think of injuries to other truck drivers.  When in fact it is not uncommon for long trips across the country to have two drivers.  One will rest in the cabin and sleep while the other one drives to avoid an hours of service violation.  But if the driver ends up falling asleep or causing a trucking crash, the sleeping co-driver can be seriously injured or killed.

This is exactly what happened in a FedEx crash that the Mark Caruso handled.  The truck driver fell asleep at the wheel and the co-driver sleeping in the cabin compartment was killed in the collision.  We represented the family of the deceased and were able to recover compensation.  If you or a loved one have been injured in a trucking crash, call our experienced Albuquerque trucking wreck attorneys for a FREE consultation by dialing (505) 308-1556 to learn how we can help you obtain the compensation you may deserve.

Truck Drivers Killed by New Mexico 18 Wheeler Wrecks: Not Just New Mexico Drivers!

New Mexico has some of the busiest and most important interstates for coast to coast shipping.  I-10, I-25, and I-40 provide east to west and north to south routes for trucking companies, with major junctions in Las Cruces and Albuquerque to switch directions.  Because of this, many of the trucking crashes in New Mexico are not always caused by New Mexico trucking companies and involve New Mexico truck drivers.  Some of the largest trucking companies in the country, including FedEx, J.B. Hunt, UPS, Schneider National, and other motor carriers use these roads.

Because the accident occurs in New Mexico, and usually because it involves at least one person from New Mexico, the venue (or place where the case and be brought) will be in New Mexico.  This means out of state people may be involved with a New Mexico trucking wreck trial, and here at the Mark Caruso that is normal!

Given New Mexico’s close proximity to California, we frequently represent truck drivers who are seriously injured or killed in trucking crashes from Ontario, Upland, and San Bernardino, California.  This is a major trucking hub where many companies operate out of and where truck drivers live.
