Your Car’s Blind Spots
Despite new advances in automobile design and technology, cars, trucks, and SUVs all have blind spots, or areas of the road not visible by the driver while he or she is looking forward or in the rear-view mirrors. And with nearly 17,000 reported automobile accidents every day, there is always a risk of injury when driving. Blind spots create a significant problem while changing lanes on the highway, and drivers should always double-check by looking over their shoulders before turning or changing lanes.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident because of a negligent driver, do not wait any longer to take action. Contact the Green Bay car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874 to speak with a qualified legal professional.
Blind Spot Prevention and Awareness
Blind spots usually happen toward the rear of the vehicle on both sides, but drivers can help combat them by installing larger mirrors or reducing the overlap between side and rear-view mirrors. To help ensure your safety on the road, be sure to follow these additional guidelines:
- Remember that larger vehicles generally have larger blind spots
- Check your blind spot carefully by turning your head before switching lanes
- Take into account other drivers’ blind spots when approaching them, especially 18-wheelers
Remember to not hover in a driver’s blind spot when passing a car because the driver will not be able to see you and a serious collision could occur as a result.
You may be eligible to receive financial compensation for medical bills, vehicle damage, and other accident expenses if you are involved in a collision with a negligent driver.
