The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) states that the Large Truck Crash Causation Study (LTCCS) found that 14 percent of large truck crashes occurred because of a driver’s inadequate surveillance, which is a situation in which a truck driver is required to look to safely complete a maneuver and either fails to look in the appropriate place or looks, but does not see. Failure to check or identify vehicles in a blind spot is a common cause of truck accidents.

Blind spot crashes may involve more inexperienced commercial drivers who have not been adequately trained. Trucking companies can be held liable for the negligence of their employees in many cases.

Types of Blind Spot Truck Accidents

Commercial trucks have blind spots on all four sides of their vehicles. Blind spots typically extend 30 feet from the rear of the truck, 20 feet from the front of the truck, and cover much of the right side from the cab to the end of the truck and the area on the driver side right behind the driver’s window.

Crashes in blind spots usually occur when truck drivers attempt lane changes without seeing other motor vehicles. It is important to understand that California is a pure comparative fault state.

This means that you are allowed to file a lawsuit against another party regardless of your degree of fault. You can recover damages even when your fault exceeds 50 percent, which is prohibited in many other states.

Types of Blind Spot Truck Accident Injuries

A blind spot crash could very well lead to catastrophic or possibly even fatal injuries. The families of people killed in these accidents can file wrongful death lawsuits.

The people who are able to survive their injuries can still face very long roads to recovery. Some people are never fully able to be restored to their former selves.

Some of the most common kinds of injuries in blind spot truck accident cases include, but are not limited to:

  • Paralysis
  • Fractures
  • Neck injuries
  • Sprains
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Muscle strains
  • Lacerations

You should avoid speaking to an insurance company for the truck driver or owner after your accident. Insurers only want to minimize whatever they have to pay you, and they may even offer you a lump sum settlement to resolve your case.

You should know that any settlement offer is likely to be a lowball amount nowhere near what you are actually entitled to. An attorney will know exactly what your case is worth and then fight to recover that amount.
