New Mexico Truck Accident Lawyer

Law Firm for Commercial Truck Accidents in El Paso

Commercial trucks have the potential to cause truly devastating accidents in the blink of an eye. While any motor vehicle accident can be serious, accidents involving big rigs nearly always result in major injuries to at least one person. Catastrophic injuries are common in these situations. This is why the responsibility of truck drivers to operate their vehicles safely is so critical. When truck drivers stop making safety their top priority - even for a moment - people can suffer life-altering injuries.

The Cal Mundell Law Firm, PLLC is committed to helping people whose lives have been upended by a big rig crash. If you are in this position, you are likely facing financial woes in addition to your physical injuries. Cal will fight for you to recover funds for every single expense or loss resulting from the accident, in addition to compensation for your noneconomic harms such as pain and suffering.

New Mexico Lawyer for Investigating Truck Accidents

One of Cal's first goals will be to uncover proof of the truck driver's careless behavior leading up to the crash. Rarely are semi-truck crashes "inevitable" or "unavoidable," regardless of what an insurance company may want you to believe.

Common causes of truck accidents we have been able to identify in different crashes we have worked on include:

  • Overloaded trucks - Drivers cannot properly control an overloaded truck, and dropped cargo becomes a risk.
  • Hours of service violations - Rest breaks are not optional for commercial truckers. When drivers fail to take their legally mandated breaks, it is more likely that their exhaustion will lead to a critical mistake.
  • Intoxication - The driver may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Rushed delivery - Delivery drivers for Amazon, FedEx, and UPS sometimes cause accidents simply because they are in too much of a rush to put safety first.
  • Distractions - Truck drivers may become bored watching the road, and they may be tempted to use their cell phones without the proper hands-free technology.

Big rig accidents do not "just happen." If you were injured by a truck driver, odds are, they were driving carelessly. Cal will seek to prove it.

Compensation Available After a Truck Accident

The goal of compensation is to make the plaintiff whole again. That means that you should be left in the same position you were in before the accident. While that is not always possible - physical injuries cannot always be undone - financial compensation should bring you as close as possible to where you were before the accident. That means you can likely recover:

  • Medical bills, including the costs of future and ongoing care
  • Lost wages, including future lost wages if you will not be able to return to your career
  • Pain and suffering

Wrongful Death Lawyer for Surviving Family After a Truck Accident

Semi-truck accidents are all too often fatal. Personal vehicles cannot protect their occupants from being struck by a large truck. If you have lost an immediate family member due to the carelessness of a truck driver, you may be able to recover substantial compensation for your loss through a wrongful death action.

You may be able to recover many of the same types of damages available in a non-fatal accident. If your family member worked to support the family, you may be able to recover the total amount of the wages they would have earned throughout their career.

While no financial compensation award can even come close to making the loss of a family member right, pursuing this type of compensation can serve two purposes. First, it can keep your family from suffering financial hardship in the wake of a loss. Second, it can hold those responsible accountable. Cal can discuss your options with you.
