Truck Driver Mistakes & Negligence
Truck drivers operate massive vehicles that can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. To say that they must always pay attention to the road is not saying enough. The utmost care and expert driving skills are required to safely share the road with smaller vehicles.
If a truck driver acts negligently behind the wheel, the result can and often is a disastrous truck accident. We know how to investigate truck accident cases to find the cause of the crash and why it would be fair to pin full liability on the truck driver, not you.
Different forms of truck driver negligence include:
- Driving while distracted
- Driving while intoxicated or impaired
- Driving while exhausted
- Failure to maintain the truck
- Failure to ensure the truck is loaded correctly
- Failure to check blind spots when merging
Injuries Caused by Truck Accidents
Massive trucks make for serious injuries in a crash. It is unusual for a truck accident to occur without causing life-changing injuries to someone in a smaller vehicle.
We hope that some of your worries can be put to rest by knowing that McGinn Montoya Love & Curry in Santa Fe works entirely on catastrophic injury cases.

Did you lose a loved one to a truck accident? We can help you with a wrongful death claim, too, so you can grieve and take care of your family, rather than worry about legal steps and procedures.
Figuring Out Liability for Truck Accidents
Many truck accident claims do not involve a single defendant like you might expect in a car accident case. Instead, truck accident claims can often involve other parties that were responsible for the care and condition of the commercial truck. We are able to handle a truck accident case, no matter how many defendants are named or that show up to the court to refute your story.
Liable parties in a truck accident claim might include the:
- Truck driver who hit you.
- Trucking company that employed the truck driver.
- Truck manufacturer if the crash was caused by a defective part.
- Company that loaded the cargo if the crash was caused by a trailer issue.
While it might seem bad that there could be multiple defendants or liable parties in your truck accident claim, it isn’t necessarily a disadvantage. Multiple liable parties could mean multiple insurance policies to file against, which can help increase your chances of getting full compensation through a settlement. Call (505) 405-4441 if you have any questions about liability and how that could impact the compensation owed to you.
