Hollywood Squeeze Play / Wide Turns

When trucks make turns, they can easily crash smaller vehicles because the tractor-trailer part of the truck swings wide. This can be known as squeeze play, and can result in serious injuries and can even shear off the top of your car or crash the vehicle and all its occupants.

If you have been in a squeeze play or wide turn accident involving a commercial truck, it is likely that the injuries and damages are significant. For this reason, it is important not to simply accept the first insurance offer your insurance company makes but rather to get legal advice about your situation. Your injuries may be more expensive than you realize and your case may be worth more than you know. Flaxman Law Group offers a free, no obligation consultation to plaintiffs in your situation. Simply contact the full-service law firm for a free appointment to review the specifics of your situation with a personal injury attorney in Hollywood.

How Can I Prevent Squeeze Play Truck Accidents in Hollywood?

To prevent this type of traffic accident, there are several things you can do:

  • Stay out of truck blind spots and make eye contact with truck drivers so you can be sure they can see you
  • Give large trucks extra room
  • When a truck signals a turn, stay well back to avoid being crushed

Of course, even if you do everything correctly you may still end up in a truck accident. A driver may fail to signal a turn or may not check blind spots. If the driver’s negligence led to the accident and your injuries, you may have a legal claim that lets you seek compensation.

What Makes Wide Turn Accidents so Deadly?

Squeeze play accidents are especially dangerous because the tractor trailer of a truck usually crashes into a much smaller passenger car with full force in these accidents. The smaller car can be crushed (with passengers still inside) or the top of the car may be sliced off. Head injuries and fatalities are very common with this type of accident.
