Blind Spot Accidents
Despite the increasing safety of motor vehicles, blind spots still exist and still cause many serious accidents. When people fail to check these spots while driving, they put all those around them at risk. Accidents resulting from drivers failing to check their blind spots result in many avoidable accidents every year.

Causes of Blind Spot Accidents
Cars and other passenger vehicles have dangerous areas that cannot be seen without a driver physically turning to check those spots. Blind spots on cars and trucks are particularly dangerous, as merging and turning frequently require glancing at blind spots. The points that cannot be seen by rear view or side mirrors are “rear quarter blind spots,” and are located on both sides of a vehicle. They can be viewed quickly by turning the head, however many people are too lazy to take this precaution.
Preventing Blind Spot Accidents
The following tips can help you avoid being involved in a blind spot accident:
- Always look before passing
- Install extra mirrors
- Adjust mirrors to include maximum view
Unfortunately, not everyone takes these precautions, and these irresponsible drivers can cause serious injury to innocent motorists.
People who have sustained car accident injuries due to the negligence of another driver may be entitled to compensation for their pain and suffering.
