No-Zone Truck Accidents

Even a small collision could cause extreme damage to anyone involved.  A truck driver must always accurately understand his/her surroundings.  Whether it be a turn, a lane switch or simply coming to stop at a light, other motorists are at risk of a severe injury for any driver mistakes.

Our lawyers have dealt with many negligent drivers. Call us if you or your family have been affected by the mistakes of a negligent truck driver.

Definition of a No-Zone

A no-zone is a blind spot around the truck. With their sizes and structure, trucks tend to have many more blind spots than normal vehicles. If another driver is driving in or close to the no-zone, the truck driver may have some difficulty spotting you on the road.

There are three main types of no-zones:

Front no-zone: Driving from an elevated height, truck drivers sometimes have trouble spotting the cars directly in front of them.

Rear no-zone: Trucks drivers are not able to see vehicles driving directly in the rear. If you as a driver cannot see the truck’s mirrors, then the truck driver most likely cannot see you either.

Side no-zone: With blind spots all around the sides of the truck, it is quite tricky for trucks to keep a clear view of their surroundings. If the other driver cannot see the truck driver’s face in the side mirror, the truck driver cannot see the other vehicle.

No-zones make it necessary for truck drivers to drive with extreme care. Driving across the nation’s roads and highways, truck drivers must be aware of their surroundings at all times. A simple mistake can result in an accident, leaving both the truck driver and the truck company liable for the damages.

If you or your loved ones have suffered or been affected by some truck driver’s negligence, our attorneys may be able to recover damages on your behalf.
