Trucking Squeeze Play
Large vehicles, primarily trucks, are a crucial and omnipresent feature on the American road. Their turning radius is one of their most distinctive features and is a great deal larger than that of most vehicles. While driving tractor trailers must swing to the opposite side before turning to give themselves road clearance, and many drivers mistake this swing for a shift in their arc. When motorists who mistake the swing attempt to pass a turning truck on the right they may face extensive vehicle damage and physical injuries. The North Carolina and South Carolina personal injury attorneys at Grimes Teich Anderson are experienced in handling accidents involving tractor-trailer rigs and may be able to help you if you have been involved in this type of accident called a squeeze play.
