Philadelphia Truck Blind Spot Accident Lawyer
Inadequate surveillance by truck drivers on the road can lead to dangerous situations and may cause serious car accidents. Inadequate surveillance occurs “when the driver is in a situation where he/she is required to look to safely complete a maneuver and either fails to look in the appropriate place or looks, but does not see.” According to research from the Large Truck Crash Causation Study, approximately 14% of large-truck crashes occur because the driver fails to use proper surveillance. Given the size and weight of trucks, inadequate surveillance by truck drivers can lead to significant car accidents and cause devastating injuries to other drivers on the road.
Failure to pay attention to blind spots is a significant type of inadequate surveillance that can lead to truck accidents. A truck’s blind spot is considered the No-Zone. Trucks have huge No-Zones, or blind spots, because of the height and length of the vehicles.
