They are large, heavy, travel fast, and are deadly. In a blink of an eye, a serious or fatal collision with a semi-truck can occur. Too often the collision is between a large truck and a passenger vehicle and the end result is always tragic.
The state, federal, and tribal highways of New Mexico, Pueblo Country, and the Navajo Nation, are a major thoroughfare for commercial vehicles traveling cross-country. As these are some of the most heavily traveled commercial trucking routes in the country, 18 wheeler accident are far too common.

We see semi-trucks all the time as we travel on I-25, or I-40, as well as the county, tribal and local roads. These big rigs travel all over the state through federal and tribal roads of New Mexico and Arizona. Each year there are unfortunate collisions with these trucks, either by other automobiles, pedestrians, or bicycles. These collisions are often serious and fatal.
Truck cases involve different rules, evidence, insurance coverage and insurance issues, and duties of the trucker and the truck company in putting these big rigs on the road.
