Three main reasons why cargo spills onto highways in transit include:
Falling cargo is very dangerous. Trucks are often carrying hundreds of pounds of cargo, and when that falls on top of cars, the results can be catastrophic.
Truck accident claims often prove to be too complicated for people to handle without the help of a personal injury attorney, mainly due to the fact that pinpointing the reasons for the truck accident can get intricate and fast. Simply saying that there was unsecure cargo in your path is one thing, but being able to prove that it was there, as well as the how’s and why’s of the accident, is another better thing altogether.
To help prove liability in your fallen cargo case, we look at:
Have an experienced truck accident lawyer who understands the intricacies of cases involving fallen and unsecured cargo. We have handled many cases like this, and we know where to look, what evidence to use, and how to effectively present it in a claim.
Waiting too long to file a truck accident claim after being hurt by loose cargo can be a serious mistake. Not only could you miss New Mexico’s statute of limitations but you also give the liable party more time to build an argument to try to defend themselves and place liability onto you, the injured party. You can rely on our truck accident attorneys in Albuquerque for responsive and quick-thinking representation, backed by decades of combined experience managing complicated injury claims.
