Suffered a Serious Commercial Vehicle Accident In Albuquerque?

Commercial vehicle drivers in Albuquerque spend a lot of their time on the road. It makes sense that the more comfortable a driver becomes on the road, the easier it is to get distracted and drive carelessly. Truckers may pose additional threats due to work requirements, lack of sleep, and occasionally bad weather. Careless driving is the major cause of commercial vehicle accidents, including those with semi-trucks, and can often lead to serious lifelong injuries or death. 


Consider these facts from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety: “A total of 3,660 people died in a commercial vehicle accident in 2014. Sixteen percent of these deaths were truck occupants, 68 percent were occupants of cars and other passenger vehicles, and 15 percent were pedestrians, bicyclists or motorcyclists. The number of people who died in a commercial vehicle accident was 16 percent higher in 2014 than in 2009.”

The reason that 68% of the deaths were in cars and passenger vehicles may be the “vulnerability of people traveling in smaller vehicles. Commercial vehicles often weigh 20-30 times as much as passenger cars and are taller with greater ground clearance, which can result in smaller vehicles underriding trucks in crashes.”
