Truck Accidents & Blind Spots

"I was injured in a truck accident, but the trucker is saying that I was in his blind spot. Does this mean that I can’t get compensation for my injuries?"

Large commercial trucks do have many blind spots located around the truck that are dangerous for drivers sharing the road with them. These blind spots are called No-Zones, which are zones in the front, rear, and sides of the truck that other drivers shouldn’t linger in.

The U.S. Department of Transportation has released numbers indicating that over 413,000 accidents are caused due to blind spots each year. Both passenger vehicles and tractor-trailers have a right to be on the road, but sharing the road safely is the challenge.

As a driver of a passenger vehicle, you have a right to pass a truck on the road. You just need to do it safely and properly. If you believe you were exercising caution while driving next to the truck and that the trucker was negligent, you may have rights to get compensation.

Truck drivers, trucking companies, and their insurance companies and lawyers will try to do anything to minimize their responsibility for a truck accident. They do not want to pay you for your injuries and damages. This is why you need to talk with a skilled truck accident attorney to find out more about your potential claim for damages. Georgia truck accidents can cause devastating injuries, affecting your health and your finances.
