At Tiemann Law Firm, we’ve noticed that it seems like there’s been an increase in trucks on the roads. Let’s hope this is a good sign regarding supply chain issues. It’s not necessarily so great for other vehicle drivers because it increases the risk of truck accidents.

The No Zone

One of the significant reasons car crashes with trucks occur is the “no-zones.” The no-zones are giant blind spots on commercial trucks. You might think that because truck drivers are so much higher up than other motor vehicle drivers, they have a better view of the road and traffic around them, but this is not the case with no-zones. The no-zone areas that truck drivers cannot see fully include:

  • The area right in front of the truck
  • The area immediately behind the back of the trailer
  • 2 larger triangular areas on either side of the truck

The best defensive driving strategy when on the road with trucks is to try to avoid the no-zones as much as possible. One way to know if you are in a no-zone is to check to see if you are able to see the truck driver in their side-view mirror. If you cannot see them in their mirror, they cannot see you or your vehicle. If you must pass through one to get around a truck, try to do so as quickly and safely as possible.

Say No to No-Zone Truck Accidents

Truck Accidents Can be Devastating

Truck drivers are responsible for being aware of the traffic, even in the no-zones. If you’ve been injured in a truck accident, you are likely suffering from serious injuries and other significant concerns such as:

  • Loss of wages
  • Future medical care and prescriptions
  • Psychological and emotional trauma from the accident
  • Loss of enjoyment of the life you had before the accident

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.

Here's the thing... Nobody really thinks much about lawyers until they need one.  Well, we needed one!  The Tieman Law Firm came through for us in a big way. They were professional, courteous, thorough, and had excellent staff as well.  Highly recommended...

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!
