Common Causes of XPO Delivery Truck Accidents

Delivery truck accidents are often preventable. Most are caused by various examples of negligence, or the failure to use proper care. If XPO Logistics is negligent in its requirement to hire and train reasonably safe drivers, for example, this can increase the risk of delivery vehicle accidents and make the company accountable for related wrecks.

Common causes of XPO collisions in New Mexico include:

  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Broken hours-of-service regulations
  • Driver distractions, such as a cell phone or GPS use
  • Speeding to meet tight delivery schedules
  • Reckless or aggressive driving behaviors
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Committing traffic violations, such as running red lights
  • Failing to check large truck blind spots
  • Inadequate truck driver training or supervision
  • Improper loading of the delivery truck’s cargo area
  • Vehicle maintenance problems and mechanical failures

Preventing XPO delivery truck accidents involves adhering to required safety regulations, engaging in routine vehicle maintenance and inspections, and promoting a workplace culture of safety among delivery drivers. If XPO Logistics fails to meet these obligations, it could be held responsible for related traffic accidents, injuries and deaths.

Steps To Take Immediately After a Delivery Truck Accident

If you get involved in an accident with a truck marked “XPO Logistics,” know that the financial recovery process will look different from a typical car accident in New Mexico. It is important to take the correct actions to protect your legal rights from the very beginning.

If you can, take these 10 basic actions after a crash:

  1. Get to a safe location to avoid further collisions, if possible.
  2. Check yourself and others involved in the crash for injuries.
  3. Call for emergency medical assistance immediately or see a doctor right away.
  4. Call 911 from the scene of the accident to report the delivery truck accident.
  5. Do not admit fault for the truck accident.
  6. Exchange contact information and insurance details with the XPO delivery driver.
  7. Document the scene by taking photographs and speaking to eyewitnesses.
  8. Preserve evidence, such as copies of your police report and medical records.
  9. Notify your car insurance company as soon as possible about the crash.
  10. Consult with a delivery truck accident attorney near you for assistance.

Each truck accident case is unique, and the specific steps that you need to take can vary based on the circumstances. However, following these general guidelines can help you protect your physical health and put you in a stronger position for an insurance claim or lawsuit that may arise.

How Do I Prove Negligence After an XPO Delivery Truck Accident in New Mexico?

New Mexico uses a fault-based traffic accident law. Under this law, the person or party at fault for a truck accident is held financially responsible (liable) for victims’ losses. The victim must prove that someone else is at fault to recover damages, or financial compensation.


Most delivery truck accident cases are based on the legal theory of negligence. Proving negligence requires evidence of four elements:

  1. Duty of care
  2. Breach of duty
  3. Causation
  4. Damages

A duty of care is a legal obligation to act with reasonable care. Since XPO Logistics is classified as a “common carrier,” or an entity that transports goods for a fee, it must adhere to higher safety standards. A breach of duty is an act or omission that falls short of the required duty of care. Causation refers to proof that the breach of duty caused the truck accident. Finally, damages refer to specific losses suffered by the victim in the delivery truck accident.

What Types of Damages Can I Recover?

Successfully proving negligence in an XPO delivery truck accident case could lead to financial compensation being awarded to you for related injuries and losses. The at-fault party or parties will be required to pay you a certain amount to make you whole again.

While every case is unique, common types of damages available include:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Lost future capacity to earn a living
  • Permanent disability
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment or quality of life
  • Wrongful death damages

The potential value of your delivery accident case will depend on the unique circumstances, such as the gravity of your injuries and the number of liable parties. Our lawyers can evaluate your case and help you pursue the financial recovery that you deserve.

New Mexico Statutes of Limitations for Delivery Truck Accident Cases

In New Mexico, a law known as the statute of limitations places a time limit on the right to file a personal injury lawsuit. In general, personal injury cases must be filed within three years of the date of the accident or injury discovery. Property-damage-only lawsuits have a time limit of four years.

Certain circumstances can shorten or extend the filing deadline on an XPO Logistics delivery truck accident case. In addition, car insurance claims should be filed much sooner than three years, as the statute of limitations only applies to personal injury lawsuits. It is crucial to contact a lawyer near you as soon as possible to protect your rights.
