Who Is Liable for a Blind Spot Truck Accident?

The truck driver is claiming that you bear full responsibility for the crash because s/he could not see you; you were driving in the truck's blind spots. While it is true that semi-trucks have significantly larger blind spots than other motor vehicles on the road, these "no zones" do not exempt truckers from taking special precautions to accommodate for their limited visibility. All drivers must practice a certain standard of care on the road and, due to the unique size and design of most tractor trailers, as well as the enormous capacity for causing harm, commercial truck drivers are held to very high standards when it comes to safely operating their vehicle.

So, Who Is At Fault?

Even if you were in the truck's "no zone" at the time of the accident, the trucker's may still be held accountable, especially if s/he was driving:

  • Aggressively
  • Under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • While distracted
  • In violation of the hours of service regulations
  • With improper or missing mirrors

Additionally, if the trucker has a history of negligent driving behavior or has had his/her license suspended or revoked, the trucking company may be liable for allowing an unqualified individual to operate such a potentially harmful vehicle.
