Injured in an Underride Accident?
Speak to Our Tampa Personal Injury Lawyer
An underride accident occurs when a motorcycle or passenger vehicle becomes
lodged under a commercial truck's underride guard. Each year, there
are approximately 350 underride accidents in the United States. The Department
of Transportation requires all commercial vehicles to install a rear impact
guard in order to prevent future accidents with passenger vehicles and
motorcycles. Despite the government's best efforts to make the roads

commercial truck at more than 35 miles per hour. There are numerous reasons
why these kinds of accidents occur.

- Distracted drivers
- Jackknifing trucks
- Merging trucks
