What should drivers avoid when near a truck?

Truck accidents are a scary experience. Trucks are large and heavy, if you are involved in a truck accident, you are lucky to walk away with your life. Often, those who survive a truck accident are still injured in some way. They may want to blame the truck driver for their injuries, but in some cases, it has been another driver's actions, not the truck driver's, that has caused the accident.

People who are driving near a truck should avoid the following actions:

  • Unsafely changing lanes in front of a truck.
  • Improperly merging into traffic.
  • Driving in a truck's "no-zone."
  • Unsafely passing a truck.

Like most motor vehicle accidents, semi-truck crashes can often be avoided. Truck accidents can often be prevented by people paying close attention to what they are doing when on the road. One should follow all safety precautions when driving near a truck. This can help ensure a safe driving experience for everyone on the road.

Any driver of a vehicle can be responsible for an accident, but whenever anyone is involved in an accident and it is not their fault, they should remember that they have options. Accidents happen, but when people don't follow the rules and laws of the road, whether it is the truck driver or another driver on the road, the person at fault should be the one to compensate the parties injured. Anyone who has been injured in a truck accident may want to seek out an experienced attorney who can help them with their case, should they choose to file a claim against the liable party.
