According to the NY State Department of Motor Vehicles, you should never change lanes without first checking your blind spots. The DMV states:
“Even correctly adjusted mirrors will leave ‘blind spots’ on both sides of your vehicle. If a vehicle is in the blind spot, you may not see it in your mirrors. Always quickly look over your shoulder before you change lanes or pass.”
Failure to adhere to these instructions may result in an unsafe lane change. If a driver moves from a lane without first confirming that the vehicle’s blind spot is clear, it is possible that he or she will collide with another vehicle. If this collision occurs on a highway at top speed, the resulting accident could be devastating.
Blind spot-related accidents can result in serious injuries, including:
- Neck and back injuries;
- Head injuries, such as concussions or other traumatic brain injuries;
- Airbag injuries;
- Lacerations from broken glass;
- Internal injuries; and
If you suffered a serious injury as a result of a blind spot accident, you may be entitled to significant compensation. If your accident was the result of someone else’s negligent behavior it is possible you may be compensated for medical costs and hospital bills related to your injuries, lost wages or reduced earning capacity because of missed time from work, and your pain and suffering.

When we take to the road, it is important to always be aware and respectful of those around us. We must share the road with each other and operate our vehicles safely at all times. Blind spot accidents can be avoided by taking the following precautions:
- ALWAYS check all mirrors and quickly look over your shoulder before changing lanes or passing;
- Ensure your mirrors are properly adjusted to give you as wide of a viewpoint as possible;
- Check your mirrors every time you get in the car to ensure nothing has shifted or changed, and readjust accordingly;
- Avoid lingering in the blind spots of other drivers as much as possible;
- Understand that the blind spots of larger vehicles and trucks are much larger than those of smaller vehicles;
- Drive defensively—always be aware of the actions of other drivers on the road;
- Remember that some vehicles, such as motorcycles, are harder to spot in your blind spots than others; and
- Always use your headlights when it is dark, foggy, or raining, to ensure you are able to be seen by others on the road.
While you can take steps to prevent a blind spot accident, it is still the obligation of other drivers not to hit you if it is preventable. If you were injured by someone else changing lanes without checking their blind spot, it is important to take the following steps after the accident:
- Fully report the accident to the responding authorities by providing as much detail as possible, including who was involved, where the accident occurred and what happened;
