In 2010, Washington beltway truck accident lawyer, George Patterson recovered $55,000 on behalf of a client that was involved a lane change accident with a tractor trailer on the Washington beltway in Prince George's County. George Patterson's client from Waldorf failed to obtain a settlement offer until Mr. Patterson's investigator was able to identify an independent witness from a photograph of the accident scene.  The witness was not listed on the police report and he did not leave his name and information before leaving the scene of the truck accident. This independent witness indicated that the tractor trailer merged into George Patterson's client's travel lane causing the truck accident.
 
Lawyer George Patterson deposed the driver of the truck and obtained a concession from the driver that his client was in the truck's blind spot at the time of the accident.  Commercial trucks have large blind spots that require drivers to be attentive to mirrors designed to correct these blind spots.  Many car drivers are unaware of the location of blind spots on large trucks.  There is a blind spot next to the cab of large trucks.  The driver sits higher than the cars and if the truck driver fails to check his mirrors for a car in the blind spot or they are not properly adjusted he will miss a car directly next to his cab.   Some trucks contain warnings that identify the location of blind spots to motorists.  These warnings are usually for the blind spot directly behind the trailer of the truck.    A truck driver that fails to make sure that his mirrors are properly positioned may be unable to see a car in a blind spot.    A blind spot exits on the right side of the cab of most large trucks.    Cars in this blind spot may only be seen by truck driver's using the mirrors that are often seen near the front hood of the trucks.    The lawyer for the truck company argued that the car driver made the unsafe lane change causing the truck accident.  The lawyer abandoned this argument once the evidence of the blind spot and the independent witness was developed.  Lawyer George Patterson has litigated over a hundred truck accident cases.  Many of these truck accident cases have involved unsafe lane changes where a truck driver failed to check a blind spot.
