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

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!

Maye Ly Testimonial

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.
