The New Mexico Law Firm of Will Ferguson & Associates
Will Take on Big-rig Truck Companies and their Insurers
Have you ever been spooked by the sight of trucks loaded with tens of thousands of pounds of cargo boxing in your vehicle as you’re traveling at 55, 65 or even 75 miles an hour?
Even the best drivers have been, because they rightly know that in a collision between a truck with a gross weight of 80,000 pounds and a car weighing 2,000 pounds, the car inevitably loses. Some of the most catastrophic accidents on New Mexico’s highways each year involve big-rig trucks.
If you’re searching for legal representation because you or a member of your family were involved in a serious accident involving a truck and suffered a serious personal injury or a wrongful death, our top-rated truck accident lawyers in Albuquerque can help.
What You’re Up Against
Some over-the-road big-rig trucks are owned by small-business owner-operators, but many more are owned by massive trucking companies or transportation conglomerates that can, and will, assemble a massive legal arsenal to fight the people injured by their fleets.
Was the truck driver involved in your accident suffering the fatigue from lack of sleep?
Was the truck poorly maintained?
Was the cargo improperly loaded or secured?
Did worn truck tires or faulty brakes play a role?
Properly investigating an accident involving a big-rig truck requires the legal and financial resources of a large and experienced law firm like Will Ferguson & Associates. Experts in a variety of scientific disciplines are needed to reconstruct the accident, calculate speeds, identify the sequence of events and dynamics of the accident, and determine the exact cause of injuries.
Once we’re retained as your counsel, we launch a multi-pronged investigation. In one, we go over the evidence of the crash with a fine-tooth comb. In the second, we identify all negligent parties to compensate you for medical expenses. In the third, we drill down through the fine print of your insurance policy and research all previous legal decisions in cases with facts similar to yours.
With more than 35 years of motor vehicle accident litigation experience, we are prepared to handle the most challenging truck-accident cases.
Is an insurance company pressuring you?
Before you sign anything, you really should talk to an experienced lawyer.
As New Mexico’s most successful personal injury law firm, we know that if you’re not familiar with the process of filing an insurance claim in a serious accident, you risk signing away your rights, missing an important deadline, or even damaging your case during a phone call with a seemingly friendly insurance adjuster.
Was your accident caused by an impaired truck driver?
While investigating the circumstances leading to a serious truck accident, our lawyers and accident investigators stay alert for any evidence of drug or alcohol impairment, signs of fatigue or records showing that a big-rig driver may have logged too many miles before the crash.
You can imagine that a trucking company with a large fleet of trucks and drivers might be reluctant to release that kind of information. That’s where Will Ferguson & Associates comes in. We have the experience, patience and professional reputation within the legal community to mount a campaign to overcome any stonewalling and obtain the records and physical evidence needed to help prove your case.
