Kankakee No-Zone Accidents Attorney
Despite years of research on increasing the safety of 18-wheelers and semi trucks on the road, truck designers have yet to completely rid a truck of dangerous blind spots. There are four main areas around 18-wheelers that are still difficult or impossible to see. These are known as “no-zones.” Collisions between trucks and cars in the “no-zone” are fairly common, and they may be the fault of a negligent truck driver.
If you or a loved one has experienced an accident with a truck while in a no-zone, you may not be responsible for this collision. For more information regarding your case, contact the experienced Kankakee no-zone accident lawyers of Spiros Law, P.C., today at (815) 929-9292 to learn more about your rights.
Commercial Truck No-Zone Areas
In order to avoid truck accidents, always pass the truck on the left-hand side. Follow the truck at a safe distance and use your turn signal to let the driver know where you plan to go. Lastly, avoid the no-zones. There are four different areas around an 18-wheeler or semi truck that are blocked from the truck driver’s view. These no-zones include:
- The area right in front of the front bumper of the truck
- Directly behind the truck’s trailer
- A small area on the driver’s side of the cab
- A larger area on the passenger side of the cab
Unfortunately, not all no-zone truck accidents are preventable. Truck driver error may be the sole cause of an accident. If you have been injured due to the negligence of a truck driver, it is important to talk to an attorney immediately.
Compensation is available to help victims of truck driver negligence cope with their pain and suffering. If you or your loved one deserves compensation for a truck driver’s irresponsibility, contact the Kankakee no-zone accident attorneys of Spiros Law, P.C., today by calling (815) 929-9292.
