Commercial trucks have hard time turning due to their large size and length. This makes maneuvering difficult while trying to make a turn. As a result, this will cause the truck driver to jump a curb or turn wide while trying to steer in a new direction. If the truck driver jumps the curb he could be placing anyone on the side one or near the roadway in danger. Because it can be so difficult to turn these large trucks, truck drivers are required to consider the public’s safety while trying to conduct a turn. If the driver makes a poor choice the result could lead to an accident occurring.

​After a wide turn accident the driver and/or his employer may both be held responsible for any injuries you might suffer because of the driver’s negligence from the wide turn accident. It might not have been the driver’s intention to hurt you or to cause an accident. Ultimately, you have legal rights after a wide turn accident and should speak with a wide turn truck accident lawyer who can inform you have your legal rights and options.

Wide turn accidents can occur is several different ways including:

  • Miscalculation of the necessary space need to make the turn. A majority of wide turn accidents occur because the driver made a simple mistake. Unfortunately, the simple mistake of miscalculating the necessary space needed to safely make a turn can have deadly consequences.
  • Moving into oncoming traffic to get the necessary space to make the turn. When the driver turns pulls left to make the turn they will often cause a head on collision to occur if they go into the lane of oncoming traffic. Head on collision accident can happen in a blink of an eye and have serious injuries that can occur.
  • Having the trailer collide with a vehicle in the turning radius. The trailer behind the truck may need extra room to safely make the turn.
