No-Zone Truck Accidents
Due to their size and design, commercial trucks and 18-wheelers present a number of roadway dangers that other vehicles do not. One of the most pronounced such hazards is the impairment of driver visibility which results from the placement and size of the trailer, creating significant spaces in which other vehicles may not be seen. These areas are sometimes referred to as “no-zones”, because it is advisable for other motorists and bicyclists to stay out of them whenever possible.
Unfortunately, despite one’s best efforts, he or she may still be struck by an inattentive truck driver while in the no-zone. It can be difficult to establish fault in such an accident, but a skilled and experienced attorney can help you to present your case.

Potentially Recoverable Damages
A no-zone accident is likely to result in significant injuries and vehicle damage because a truck driver will have been unlikely to take any measures to avoid the collision or lessen the force of impact. Depending upon the severity of injuries and damage, it may be appropriate to file a civil lawsuit seeking financial compensation for the following potentially recoverable damages:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Vehicle repair or replacement costs
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
