Drivers of semi-trucks are under strict federal and state laws mandating their conduct: the number of hours a driver can drive, weight limits, maintenance requirements, etc… Sometimes, however, in the interest of profit, expediency, and deadlines, some drivers and their companies disregard the federal and state laws and put the general driving public at unreasonable risk.
The Law Office of Mark Keller will aggressively investigate the accident so that a favorable settlement can be reached. In the event that the company, driver, or their insurance company do not want to settle the claim, we have no problem proceeding to trial and letting the jury decide what is to be awarded. All three attorney, have done numerous jury trials in both District and other State Courts in New Mexico.
Usually, the injuries involved in semi-truck accidents are horrendous; this is due to the fact that there is such a disparity in size and weight difference to normal passenger cars. The most common injuries include: traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, loss of life, bone fractures, and loss of limb injuries.
These injuries can be devastating to the injured as well as their families. Medical bills can easily wipe out a lifetime of family savings. Thus, it is important to get the compensation you deserve. This can include money for medical bills, pain, and suffering, lost wages, long-term care, disability, rehabilitation expenses, future medical expenses, etc…
