I'd blame it on you too but it still blows. I guess the sign speaketh the truth after all.
Sorry about it bro.

They call that the no zone. Never hang right of an 18 wheeler. The driver can't see you if you are closer to his vehicle than say about 10 feet, And if you think the left side right by the driver door is any safer? Well, try one on and find out. That was a tap, I've seen a run over. Mind you any bump is bad timing, you loose the use of the X for???? And that sucks. Hope it works out. Should be some used bumpers out there in good condition.

I am scared of the no zones, I always make sure I can see the driver in their mirror when passing or going around, my theory is if I can see him he can see me.

My father was a trucker for quite a few years. Growing up I heard all the stories of cars and trucks running them over. Looks like that one wasn't too bad after hearing some of the stories. Glad your ok and that's what insurance is for. :)

If you want to try and fight that it is your fault I would recommend getting a copy of NC commercial driver's manual and seeing what it has to say about making left/right turns. In PA trucks are legally not allowed to swing to the left prior to making a right hand turn and then cut back across the lane that they were traveling in (because of the very thing that happened to you).

Best of luck.
