The area around your vehicle that can’t be directly observed by the driver is often referred to as a blind spot. When a vehicle is traveling in these areas, the driver may not see them unless they physically turn their head to look into the other lane. While side-mirrors do help to reduce a driver’s blind spots, they still exist. These blind areas are the direct cause of at least 840,000 car crashes each year in the United States.
Blind Spot Car Crashes and Liability in Pennsylvania
Drivers can avoid these types of accidents by remaining vigilant about the vehicles around them, adjusting their mirrors for maximum visibility, or turning their head to check the adjacent lane for incoming cars. If all drivers practiced these safety tips, then blind spot accidents would not occur. Drivers should never change lanes until they have ensured that it is safe to proceed. Failing to do so is considered negligence. For this reason, drivers who cause a blind spot accident are usually found to be at-fault and liable for the car crash.
