Semi-trucks and big-rigs have large blind spots along the sides of the trailer, and an automobile traveling in one of these “No Zones” can easily disappear to the trucker’s view, creating a major risk of a sideswipe accident. While many trucking accidents of this type are caused by the driver of the smaller vehicle, others can be proven to be the result of the truck driver’s negligence in checking before making a lane change. Accidents of this type can be terrifying for the victims and will frequently result in devastating injuries or even death.
Injured In A Sideswipe Truck Accident In Austin?
In addition to sideswipe accidents, a trucker can cause a collision by making a lane change without flashing the turn signal or by cutting off a vehicle in the other lane. When this happens, the result may be an underride accident where the following car is forced under the rear end of the truck trailer, potentially resulting in catastrophic injuries for the victims. An Austin accident attorney from our firm will carefully investigate the circumstances of your collision to find the necessary evidence to support your claim and will fight to help you recover the amount you deserve.
