On the surface, the cause of a truck accident might seem simple: a truck driver lost control and hit you. When diving into the details of the situation, though, the case might become quickly complicated. Part of our role as your truck accident attorneys will be to navigate everything for you, get to the truth, and find evidence that shows how you weren’t to blame for the life-changing crash.
Depending on the result of our investigation, we might uncover many forms of negligence that contributed to the crash. Furthermore, if there are many forms of negligence that cause a truck accident, then it might mean that there are multiple defendants that we must file against.
Common causes of truck accidents can include:
- Truck driver is distracted, intoxicated, or exhausted behind the wheel.
- Truck driver breaks the speed limit to complete a route faster.
- Truck is not maintained properly, leading to a mechanical failure.
- Truck is not loaded properly, overweighting or misbalancing the truck.
- Truck company did not properly vet a new driver who is not qualified for the job.
A commercial truck can weigh up to 80,000 pounds in most situations. This massive amount of weight gives the truck a huge amount of momentum and force, especially when traveling at highway speeds. When a crash occurs, the worst of the impact will be imparted on the smaller, lighter vehicle. For this reason, truck accident cases normally involve catastrophic injuries. Indeed, at McGinn Montoya Love & Curry, we dedicate our representation to truck accident claimants who have suffered severe and life-changing injuries because they need our help more than anyone.
Our firm can help clients who have suffered severe injuries in truck accidents, such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Third-degree burns
- Soft tissue injuries
- Permanent disfigurements

However, we have a feeling that you will choose us due to our personalities, commitment to other locals in Albuquerque, and winning record for catastrophic injury cases. We have personally handled some of the largest and most complicated truck accident cases in New Mexico.
New Mexico is one of a few states that use pure comparative negligence rules. Under this liability rule, you can file a truck accident claim if you are less than 100% liable for the crash. You could be 99% liable and still have the right to start a claim. Although, the higher your liability, the more challenging a case will be and the more your compensation will be reduced if any is secured.
