Wausau “No-Zone” Truck Accident Attorneys
As an important part of American commerce, large commercial trucks are a fixture on the nation’s roadway. Unfortunately, these vehicles pose a significant threat to other motorists due to their immense size, weight, and structural design. One frequent contributor to accidents is the unavoidable existence of large blind spots, which are sometimes referred to as no zones, for truck drivers. When other vehicles enter these areas, they may be unseen by truckers and dangerous accidents can occur.
If you or a loved one was injured while driving in a truck’s no-zone, the truck driver may be at fault. Truck drivers who fail to regard their no-zones with caution can cause serious accidents. If this has happened to you, contact the Wausau no zone truck accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 to discuss your case with a tenacious and committed lawyer.
Where are the No-Zones?
Truck drivers are well aware of their truck’s no-zones, and as such are obligated to pay attention when a vehicle comes and goes through a large blind spot next to or in front of their truck. Though the specific areas where a truck driver’s line of sight is restricted will vary depending upon the structure of his or her vehicle, the load which is being hauled, and other factors, the following are indicative of typical no-zone placement:
- Closely behind the truck
- On the driver’s side of the truck, near the driver’s seat.
- Immediately in front of the truck (a particular danger for small vehicles).
- On the passenger’s side of the truck, from roughly the front of the truck to the midpoint.
Truck drivers can avoid merging or switching lanes and colliding with another vehicle if they are aware of vehicles passing through the no-zones.
If you or a loved one was injured while traveling in a truck’s no-zone, you may be entitled to compensation.
