Blind Spot Truck Accident Injury Lawsuit Lawyers


February 24, 2022

One of the most important defensive driving techniques to avoid crashes is not driving in another motorist's blind spot. All motor vehicles have one or more blind spots. Large tractor-trailer trucks have a much larger blind spot than other motor vehicles. 

A truck accident can cause catastrophic injuries such as loss of limbtraumatic brain injuryparalysisbroken bonesamputations, and other catastrophic injuriesBlindspot truck accidents happen when a motor vehicle is traveling in the blind spot of an 18-wheeler's driver and the truck driver, who cannot see the other vehicle, turns into the other vehicle. 

Some people would blame the truck driver for failing to exercise reasonable care by checking their truck's blind spot for vehicles before changing lanes, turning, or stopping.  Some people believe the other car's driver is at-fault for continuously driving in the trucker's blind spot.  

In an effort to stop truck accidents caused by blind spots, some trucks post warning decals on the back of the trailer showing the truck's blind spots and urging drivers to avoid lingering in the truck's blind spots.  

Fortunately, there are new technologies that automatically issue a warning to the truck driver when a car is in the blind spot. However, some transportation companies are unwilling to spend money on safety features that are not mandated by federal transportation regulators. 

In some cases, truck drivers injured in blind spot accidents have successfully sued drivers of passenger vehicles who were lingering in the truck driver's blind spot. In several states, motorists who act recklessly or negligently, leading to an accident, are still able to recover compensation if their actions were not the primary reason for the accident. For these reasons, it is essential that you speak with an experienced truck accident attorney to understand your legal rights and if you are able to recover damages. Trucking accident cases are extremely complex. Commercial truck owners are required by law to carry substantial insurance coverage.
