4 Steps to Avoid Truck Accidents

When commercial trucks or 18-wheelers are involved in an accident, the consequences can be very serious. These vehicles weigh tens of thousands of pounds and can also have a very difficult time slowing down or stopping in response to a sudden change in conditions on the roadway. Many drivers are intimidating by travel near 18-wheelers on the road. And although these trucks are involved in close to 500,000 accidents a year, you can reduce your risk of an accident by taking some precautions.

Being involved in a commercial truck accident can lead to a host of difficulties, including physical, emotional, and financial effects. If your crash was caused by the negligence of a truck driver or trucking company, you may be able to pursue financial compensation for these damages. Contact the San Antonio accident attorneys of Chris Mayo Injury Lawyers by calling (210) 999-9999 today to discuss your situation with a committed and experienced legal representative.

How to Drive Safely Near 18-Wheelers

You may not be able to anticipate when and where an accident will happen, but by remaining alert and actively adjusting your driving behaviors, you can reduce your likelihood of being involved in an accident. When driving around 18-wheelers, be sure to:

  • Have a plan in case an 18-wheeler crosses into your lane
  • Do not tailgate or draft behind 18-wheelers
  • Stay out of the no-zone areas or blind spots
  • Allow plenty of room when passing an 18-wheeler
