No-Zone Truck Accident Lawyers
If you or a loved one have been hit by a large truck after the driver failed to check their blind spot, the Oceanside no-zone accident attorneys of Law Offices of Yvonne M. Fraser are here to help. Operators of large trucks must pass rigorous testing to ensure each driver knows how to handle the vehicle safely on the road. One of the reasons semi-trucks and 18-wheelers are so dangerous is because they have several no-zones or “blind spots” where the driver cannot see surrounding vehicles around the trailer. Although truck drivers must hold a special license and complete in-depth training, accidents still happen when a truck driver can’t see another vehicle in their no-zone. Human error is the leading cause of these types of accidents, and when they occur, serious injuries or fatalities often result.
In the case of a truck no-zone accident, you should strongly consider hiring legal counsel. Injuries from accidents involving large trucks are usually severe enough to prevent the victim from returning to work right away. These types of accidents often require lots of expensive medical treatments, including a ride in an ambulance, an emergency room visit, an extended hospital stay, continued medical care, and possibly even physical therapy.

Types of Cases We Handle
With our strong medical background, Law Offices of Yvonne M. Fraser knows how necessary and, unfortunately, expensive it is to get the medical treatments you need to recover from a serious accident. Our mission is to hold reckless truck drivers accountable after they failed to operate their vehicles safely and caused you and your family to suffer. You are not responsible for another driver’s mistakes, and you should not have to deal with the aftermath by yourself. No-zone accidents are the result of human error, and therefore, the driver should be held liable for some of the responsibility. There are three major areas around a semi-truck that are considered no-zones:
- Front Bumper: The zone directly in front of the truck cannot be seen from the driver’s seat. As part of their training, truck drivers are taught to stay far behind other vehicles to maintain a safe distance.
- Side Areas: The sides of the truck are difficult to see without special mirrors. Even then, the mirrors cannot show every zone around the truck. This makes other vehicles especially vulnerable when large trucks are changing lanes.
- Rear Bumper: Large trucks do not have rearview mirrors and cannot see directly behind them. It is important to stay a safe distance behind 18-wheelers for this reason.
The reason truck drivers are required to obtain a class-C license is that their massive vehicles are difficult to control. Without keen attention paid to every surrounding detail, a truck driver can make an error that causes an accident.
If a large truck forced you to have an accident after coming into your lane while you were in a no-zone, they can still be held responsible. The vulnerable nature of surrounding drivers is one of the reasons why it is so important for truckers to carefully check all of their no-zones before changing lanes. If your accident was caused by a large truck, even if you collided with another object or vehicle, the driver of the semi may still be liable for your injuries if they failed to ensure the lane was clear.
