Liability in New Mexico Tractor Trailer Collisions with Other Trucks
There are many possible ways that a New Mexico tractor trailer collision could be caused. Issue such as running a stop sign, failing to yield, improper mergers, unsafe lane changes, and other types of negligent conduct could result in liability against the truck driver. This includes mechanical defects and mistakes in the upkeep of the motor vehicle. Once liability is proven against a truck driver, it can allow the other truck driver to recover damages for injuries.
But once a personal injury victim has proven liability against the truck driver, a victim may also be able to establish liability against the trucking company. This is because the trucking company is vicariously liable for the actions of its employees. This includes its employees such as truck drivers and mechanics. Therefore, negligent conduct by a truck driver which causes a truck crash (like running a red light) and negligent conduct by a mechanic (failing to properly reconnect the brakes) could result in serious liability for the company.
