Blind spot accidents can occur when someone doesn’t check their blind spots for other motorists before making a lane change or turn. This is because part of the driver’s vehicle blocks their full field of vision. Therefore, if someone is next to their car, the driver cannot see them and could run into them while changing lanes. Blind spot accidents typically occur on roads or highways with more than one lane.

How Do Blind Spot Accidents Happen?
The Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) crash dashboard states there were over 400,000 crashes in Florida in one year alone. Many of these accidents occur because of negligent drivers, including those who fail to check their blind spots before turning or making lane changes.
Many blind spot accidents happen because drivers don’t check their blind spots or look in their mirrors before changing lanes. Behaviors that can make blind spot accidents more prevalent include:
- Impaired driving: When people drive while impaired, their inhibitions are lower. This means they are less likely to take careful measures when making lane changes or turning.
- Reckless driving: When drivers engage in reckless behaviors, such as speeding or weaving in and out of traffic, they are less likely to check their blind spots.
- Inexperienced drivers: When drivers do not have a lot of driving experience, they don’t have as much confidence when changing lanes and could forget to check their blind spots. If they are new truck drivers, they may not understand all the blind spots involved with driving a semi-truck.
If you suffered injuries because someone failed to check their blind spot and it caused an accident, you could file a claim against the liable party.
