Defending You When Albuquerque Construction Vehicle Accidents Happen

Construction vehicles include heavy trucks and other types of equipment used during road and building construction and in the course of performing maintenance tasks such as landscaping, utility work, and hauling debris. Due to the size, weight, and overall dimensions of these vehicles, they can be bulky and hard to manage. This also increases the risk for serious and potentially life-threatening injuries when crashes, collisions, and other types of mishaps occur.

According to crash reports from the New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT), more than 2,000 of these accidents occur throughout the state each year.
