Prevent truck accidents this winter, be extra cautious on ice and snow

Comments Off

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, one in eight fatal car accidents in 2004 resulted from a collision involving a large truck.

The heavy weight of the vehicle makes it harder for semi-trucks to stop, especially when there is snow and ice on the ground. Since the trailer is only connected to the truck’s cab in one place, it is easy for the trailer to jack-knife, or sway on icy roads. Help truck drivers avoid an Ohio truck accident by never cutting off a driver, and by maintaining proper speed around them.

Our Toledo, Ohio truck accident lawyers want to urge drivers to be extra careful this winter as the snow and ice make it difficult for semi-trucks to maneuver on roadways.

Stay out of a trucker’s blind spot. If you cannot see their rear-view mirrors, the truck drivers cannot see you. Avoid Ohio truck accidents by keeping extra distance between you and trucks this winter. But if you or someone you know has been injured in an Ohio truck accident, contact our Ohio truck accident attorneys to order your FREE copy of The Ohio Accident Book today.
