San Diego Blind Spots Attorney
Countless accidents occur every day because of one driver’s failure to see an oncoming vehicle positioned in his or her blind spot. If you have been injured in an accident caused by a negligent driver’s ill-advised lane change, the San Diego blind spots lawyers at the Traffic Accident Law Center are here to help.
Auto Accidents Caused by Inadequate Surveillance
A blind spot is an area of the road that is outside of the view of a vehicle driver. Most cars and trucks have blind spots on either side just behind the driver’s and front passenger’s doors. However, different makes and body styles will have different blind spots, and an individual driver’s height and seat position can drastically impact his or her ability to survey the road.
Regardless, the duty of care on public roadways requires all drivers to ensure that there are no vehicles in their blind spots before changing lanes. This typically requires, at a minimum, looking over your shoulder for oncoming traffic. Inadequate surveillance can – and does – lead to serious accidents, and victims are entitled to recover financial compensation for their injuries from the negligent driver.
Although any two vehicles can be involved in an accident, common scenarios our San Diego blind spot attorneys frequently see in inadequate surveillance cases include:
- Car vs. car
- Car vs. motorcycle
- Commercial truck vs. car
- Commercial truck vs. motorcycle
San Diego Bind Spots Lawyers for No-Zone Truck Accidents
Blind spot accidents caused by commercial truck drivers are commonly known as “no-zone” collisions. In a no-zone accident, the truck driver’s attorneys will typically attempt to argue that you are at fault for being in the truck’s no zone when the crash occurred. In these types of cases, it is especially important to have an attorney on your side with particular experience challenging and overcoming these “contributory negligence” claims. The San Diego auto accidents lawyers at the Traffic Accident Law Center have successfully represented numerous clients in no-zone truck accidents, and they can help make sure that you receive maximum compensation for your injuries and financial losses.
Because of the size, weight and velocity of commercial trucks, many no-zone blind spot accidents result in life-altering head and spine injuries. Sadly, no-zone accidents also often result in wrongful death. If you have lost a loved one in a commercial truck accident, please contact the Traffic Accident Law Center right away.
