Wide-Turn Truck Accident Attorneys
Our attorneys fight for victims of careless truck drivers
Trucks are about 20-30 times heavier than the average sedan and require a lot more room to maneuver. In particular, trucks must make wide turns. They do not have a turning radius for anything smaller.
When they are making a right turn, it is common for a truck cab to pull out to the next lane over to the left to give the vehicle more room to make the righthand turn. Sometimes a car gets stuck on the right side of a truck making a turn. This is called a “right squeeze” accident.
In wide turn accidents, the trucker is almost always to blame, but don’t expect them or their insurance company to make the process easy on you. The more blame they can heap onto you, the less money they’ll have to pay.

Wide-turn truck accident injuries
When done improperly, a wide turn often results in several types of crashes. These include head-on collisions with traffic in the oncoming lane, right squeeze, and right-angle crashes.
The types of injuries commonly associated with wide-turn crashes include:
- Scrapes, cuts, lacerations, punctures
- Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
- Neck and head pain
- Spinal cord injuries
- Herniated discs
- Psychological distress like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or increased anxiety and depression
- Internal bleeding
- Broken bones
- Musculoskeletal injuries
We will get to the bottom of your truck accident
Fault in a wide turn crash is not always obvious.
The rules of the road say that when a semi-truck or other type of big rig is traveling on a two-lane street, the trucker must signal and straddle both lanes to make a wide right turn. Proving negligence requires reconstructing what happened. Did the trucker not see a vehicle that was in the right lane when they tried to make the turn? Or did the hit vehicle try to pass the truck on the right?
The attorneys at Hoover Rogers Law, LLP know how to conduct in-depth investigations that yield important evidence to support your truck accident claim.
