Champaign No-Zone Trucking Accident Attorney
If you or someone you love was injured in an accident with a truck because the driver did not check the no-zones, Spiros Law, P.C. can help. Accidents are especially common when cars enter specific areas around the 18-wheeler that the truck driver cannot see, called no-zones. Even if your accident occurred while you were driving in a no-zone, it is not your fault. It is the truck driver’s responsibility to notice when cars enter and leave the no-zones, and so they are still liable for your injuries.
That is why the experienced Champaign truck no-zone accident lawyers at Spiros Law, P.C. are ready to get you the compensation you deserve if you have been in a trucking accident. Contact us at (217) 328-2828 to discuss your case and learn more about your legal rights and options.
Do I Need A Lawyer?
No-zone accidents can be especially stressful when insurance adjusters and opposing lawyers try to argue that you were at fault. A truck accident attorney will take the burden of proving your case off of your shoulders, giving you the time you need to rest and recover. While you focus on getting better, your lawyer will investigate the accident and will collect all of the necessary information and paperwork to build the most convincing case on your behalf.

Where Are the Truck’s No-Zones?
Because an 18-wheeler is such a powerful and dangerous machine, truck drivers have to be extra vigilant when checking their blind spots before changing lanes. Failure to do this can cause an accident that can have devastating or fatal consequences for surrounding motorists. Truck drivers are responsible for being vigilant of cars that may have just entered the no zone, and failure to do so puts motorists in danger. The following areas of a truck are considered no-zones:
- Directly in front of a truck: Because of the height and distance at which a truck driver of an 18-wheeler sits, it can be difficult to see cars directly in front of them, especially smaller vehicles.
- A wide area on the right side of a truck: Because the mirrors on an 18-wheeler or semi-truck do not show the full side of the truck, it can make changing lanes even more dangerous because the driver of a truck cannot see if there is a vehicle there.
- A small area on the left side of a truck: Even though it may seem like the truck driver should be able to see directly next to them, the height of the 18-wheeler means there is a high probability that there is no visibility next to the truck. This means that changing lanes is just as dangerous when moving to the left.
- Behind the truck: Because 18-wheelers carry large and heavy loads in long trailers, it is difficult for the mirrors to show truck drivers when motorists are behind them. If a truck driver decides to break suddenly or change lanes where they cannot see a motorist, it can cause a horrible accident.
If you were injured in an accident while driving in one of these no-zones, you might be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. You should not be the one to bear the cost of an accident just because you were in a truck’s no-zone. Truck drivers are obligated to use caution while driving, and that includes watching for cars that may have entered their blind spots. At Spiros Law, P.C., we can help you get the compensation you deserve after an accident like this.
