Accidents involving a large commercial truck can be devastating encounters for the driver and passengers of the smaller conventional automobiles they collide with. These individuals are likely to sustain significant injury and extensive property damage. One of most notable safety shortcomings of large trucks is their limited visibility caused by the cargo they are hauling and the design of their cabins. Due to the large blind spots, sometimes referred to as “no zones”, present in a truckers field of vision, it can be all too easy for accidents to occur.
If you have suffered an injury in a truck accident while you were in the no zone of a truck, you are likely entitled to pursue financial compensation for your medical expenses and other damages.

While it can help you stay safe to avoid these no zones, your presence in them does not forgive the truck driver of their responsibility and liability in an accident. They must exercise alertness as other vehicles pass into and out of the no zones.
