New Mexico Work-Related Auto Accident Lawyers
Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of injury and death on the job. Industries such as construction, oil and gas involve the operation of heavy equipment, trucks and other vehicles in close proximity to workers on foot. Devastating accidents can occur in the blink of an eye.
With the recent oil boom in New Mexico, the risk of work-related vehicle accidents has soared. Service truck drivers are often underqualified, undertrained and overworked. Unfortunately, this creates a dangerous recipe for everyone in the proximity.
Don’t Make This Common Mistake
Many workers make the mistake of assuming that if they were injured on the job, workers’ compensation is their only recourse. In many cases, however, they may have a personal injury claim in addition to workers’ compensation. Negligent parties other than your employer — such as other workers, contractors, drivers or equipment manufacturers — can be sued for the part they played in contributing to the accident.
