We can help.
The compassionate team of attorneys at Black Law Group understand the emotional distress, financial hardships, and physical pain that frequently results when you or someone you love is involved in a trucking accident. Large Trucks (i.e. "18-wheelers", "big-rigs", "tractor-trailers", and "big-rigs") constitute the most dangerous motor vehicles traveling New Mexico roadways. The aftermath of a tractor-trailer crash often results in intense pain, prolonged physical therapy and/or rehabilitation, and staggering medical costs. Trucking accident victims often are robbed of simple life pleasures, such as playing catch with their child or walking on the beach with a spouse.

Seeking the trucking lawsuit verdict or settlement you are entitled to under law.
A large truck collision constitutes more than a "motor vehicle crash with a large vehicle". This type of accident claim involves complicated issues and requires experience with the following:
- Extensive knowledge of regulations and laws that govern commercial carriers
- Thorough understanding of trucking industry standards, practices, and customs
- Familiarity with trucking industry practices involving the alteration and destruction of evidence
- Dispatching trucking accident investigators to the scene of a crash
Aggressive Representation of Negligent Truck Drivers and Commercial Carriers
Our experienced Albuquerque trucking accident lawyers carefully investigate the facts and circumstances of crashes caused by large truck operators to identify negligent conduct, such as:
- Violation of hours of service rules (fatigue)
- Drug or alcohol impaired truck drivers
- Unsafe roadways
- Failure to perform vehicle inspections and maintenance
- Improperly loaded or overloaded trucks
- Disregarding adverse weather or road conditions
- Insufficient screening, training, or supervision of drivers by trucking companies
- Distracted drivers (cell phone use, adjusting radio, etc.)
- Defective trucks or components
Liability of the trucking company and truck driver generally involves establishing negligence. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and state law heavily regulates the trucking industry. A violation of these regulations can constitute a basis for imposing liability.
