No Zone Accidents
In truck driving, “no zones” refer to areas around commercial trucks that cannot be seen using the driver’s mirrors. In other words, a truck’s no zones are the equivalent of a passenger automobile’s blind spots.
Drivers who are stuck in no zones may be at greater risk for serious accidents. If you or someone you love suffered an injury in a no zone truck accident, contact the Lake Geneva trucking accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874 today for a free legal consultation.
Understanding No Zones
A truck’s no zones are areas around a truck where a truck driver cannot see with his or her mirrors. These areas are:
- Directly in front of the truck
- Directly behind the truck
- To the immediate left and right of the truck
Since the truck driver cannot see these areas, this means that they also cannot see drivers who drive in these areas. When a trucker fails to check his or her no zones, he or she may cause a serious accident with drivers who are in those areas.
Even though truckers cannot see their no zones, they may still be liable for the injuries they cause when they are involved in no zone accidents.
