Blind Spots Are No Excuse For Truckers
Every car has blind spots in which drivers cannot see approaching vehicles. These blind spots are typically in the rear and on each side of the vehicle. Like cars, trucks and SUVs, 18-wheelers also have blind spots. These spots make up the “no-zone” area where rearview and side mirrors do not provide complete coverage. No zone areas make it difficult for truck drivers to see other vehicles. When a truck driver changes lanes, brakes or takes other actions without being aware of a nearby automobile, serious car wrecks can happen fast.
We understand it’s sometimes hard for truck drivers to see other vehicles. But blind spots and “no zones” do not excuse a trucker from operating his vehicle in a safe manner. 18-wheeler truck drivers are professionals and are responsible for operating their vehicles safely on the road. And when they cause an accident due to reckless driving, they need to be held accountable.

Truck Driver Blind Spots Can Lead To Serious 18-Wheeler Accidents
Such accidents might seem straightforward. You might think you don’t need a lawyer to represent you if a tractor-trailer driver clearly caused the accident. Don’t be so sure. Some drivers may try to point the blame at you. And even if police determine the other driver clearly caused the accident, insurance companies often do whatever they can to pay people as little money as possible after an accident.
