What is a no-zone?

Driving in Texas is not always as safe as you might hope. All too often, a simple mistake leads to devastating accidents that turn lives upside-down and leave families shattered. Many of these accidents involve trucks. These large vehicles, often with heavy or hazardous loads can do a lot of damage if something goes wrong. However, it is not always the fault of the truck driver when this occurs.

Something many drivers forget is that trucks do not afford the same field of vision as smaller vehicles do. As a result, there are areas around a truck that the driver simply cannot see. As this article on truck crashes explains, these are often referred to as no-zones. This is because not only can the driver not see in these areas, but also because they are areas into which you should not move your vehicle.

Remember that a truck has no visibility behind it, or in the areas right alongside it and be wary if you see another driver moving into any of these spaces. If the truck needs to turn or brake, it could spell disaster, potentially causing a chain reaction crash. Even if you had nothing to do with initiating the incident, you could still get caught up in it.

An attorney can be extremely useful in the wake of such an accident. He or she can weigh up the details of the crash and may be able to help you determine what to do next. If you have been injured as a result of someone else's irresponsible driving, you may be entitled to compensation. Your attorney can help you figure out if this is the case.
