Causes of Underride Truck Accidents

We fight for people who have suffered serious injury or death as a result of accidents with causes such as these:

  • Truck traveling without lights or with dirty or damages reflective tape and taillights
  • Truck traveling much slower than the posted speed limit
  • Truck parked too near the roadway without warning cones
  • Truck jack-knifed across narrow road without lights or warning cones
  • Truck missing rear guard designed to prevent underride accidents
  • Truck rear guard loose or defective
  • Truck backs into smaller vehicle

These and other types of underride accidents can cause catastrophic injuries that deserve compensation. People who survive such accidents often have significant needs. They may be brain-damaged and not able to work. They may have suffered spinal cord injuries that resulted in paralysis. They may have been seriously burned when their car caught fire. Whatever the nature or extent of the injury, the victims of these types of accidents will require long-term care, therapy and assistive devices, all of which cost money. We seek full compensation for our clients so they can afford the care they need.
