Underride Accidents

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 safer, these rear guards are prone to failure when a vehicle hits the commercial truck at more than 35 miles per hour. There are numerous reasons why these kinds of accidents occur.

Some causes of underride collisions can include:

  • Distracted drivers
  • Jackknifing trucks
  • Merging trucks

SUV's, motorcycles, and cars are not built to withstand the pressure of being pulled underneath a truck, and can result in catastrophic injuries for drivers. If you have sustained moderate, serious or catastrophic injuries from an underride accident caused by another individual, retain our legal representation immediately.
