Indianapolis No-Zone Accident Attorney
The term “no-zone” refers to the areas on a large truck where smaller vehicles disappear from sight. Typically, it can be assumed that the larger the truck is, the larger its “no-zone” areas are. Studies have shown that the chances of a collision between a truck and another vehicle are 60% more likely to occur if the other vehicle is driving in a “no-zone”.
Any accident involving a large truck and another automobile can certainly cause considerable damage. An Indianapolis “no-zone” accident lawyer from the Hankey Law Office will help you fight to get the compensation you deserve if you are in a “no-zone” accident.
Possible Causes of “No-zone” Accidents
“No-zone” accidents may occur due to limited visibility in any of the following areas:
- The side no-zone: The area along either side of the truck that is difficult for the driver to see. Many trucks have blind spot mirrors installed, but a general rule of thumb is “if you can’t see the driver’s face in the mirror, he / she cannot see you.”
- The rear no-zone: For most large trucks, the truck driver will not be able to see your vehicle unless you are at least 200 feet behind the truck.
- The front no-zone: Smaller vehicles can sometimes disappear from sight under the front of the cab if they are too close to the truck.
