What Happens in a Collision with a Commercial Vehicle?
Commercial drivers are subject to stricter licensing requirements and regulations than regular drivers are. Despite more training and more regulations, commercial drivers cause collisions. The massive weight and size of many commercial vehicles make it difficult for their drivers to navigate turns, change lanes and slow down. Accidents involving commercial vehicles often result in serious injuries or fatalities.
These types of accidents also pose different and more complicated legal concerns than other traffic accidents. Insurance issues are more complex, and multiple parties may be involved, including not only the commercial driver but also their employer, and the company who hired them to carry a load. Experienced legal guidance is especially valuable in these types of cases.

Types of Commercial Vehicles

- Cement trucks and construction vehicles
- Oil and gas service trucks
- Package delivery trucks (FedEx, UPS, Amazon)
- Food delivery cars

- Commercial buses and shuttles
The rapidly growing oil and gas business in New Mexico has led to the creation of “boomtowns” and numerous jobs for drivers of service vehicles. Unfortunately, because of the high demand for such drivers, many are not properly qualified or trained for the job. They are also often overworked, which can lead to driver fatigue.
