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.

At Mandelbaum Trichler Law Center, P.A., we know how to protect your financial security and will exhaust all our available resources to help you. If you or someone you know has been harmed due to a negligent truck driver, you may be entitled to receive compensation. Our team of Tampa personal injury lawyers has decades of legal experience with personal injury claims, and is fully equipped to assist you.

    "If I could give Ernie Trichler 10 stars, I definitely would"
    If I could give Ernie Trichler 10 stars, I definitely would - 5 stars is not enough. Ernie aided myself & family with my mother’s wrongful death case. He didn’t care that she was 100 years old. Ernie is professional, trustworthy, and most importantly, he knows the law. He answered his phone every time I called with questions and he always had the answers. I interviewed at least 4 different attorneys and there was no doubt that Ernie is above and beyond them all. If you are in need of an attorney within the realm of his expertise, I highly recommend Ernie Trichler.

    "I went through a very traumatic accident that left me hospitalized for a month and in recovery for much longer"

    I went through a very traumatic accident that left me hospitalized for a month and in recovery for much longer. It was such a difficult and expensive process that I never thought I'd ever recover from. Jennifer Mandelbaum took care of me from day 1 making sure I never had to stress which was so amazing for me as to this day suffer from terrible PTSD. She not only made sure that I was taken care of but also that I was treated like family and she walked me through every step, ensuring that I was properly represented and didn't have to struggle with my bills for all my specialized doctors and care. I couldn't recommend a better firm to take care of you in your moment of need!

    It's a sad day when you find yourself needing a lawyer. So happy to have found Atty. Jennifer Mandelbaum, as she was so very helpful in all aspects. I never needed a lawyer before and did not understand the processes. Jennifer was always so pleasant and stayed in communication with me via text, calls and e-mails. Any time that I had a question or concern she was on it. I appreciate her business and I highly recommend her for your accident lawyer needs.

I highly recommend Jennifer Mandelbaum. Hopefully I will not need her in the future but if I do I she's the attorney I'll call. Thank you so much for such outstanding job Jennifer!

    "Professionalism at its Finest"
    Ernie was the epitome of a silver lining in an unfortunate situation. Having never dealt with an attorney in any sort of professional capacity, I was quite intimidated by the prospect. However, Ernie quickly put my mind at ease. Throughout the entirety of my case, he kept in constant contact with me. He updated me on new developments every step of the way and was more than willing to decipher all legal jargon that came my way. He worked tirelessly to yield the best possible results from my case. From the day of our first interaction, I knew the case was in capable hands.
    - Cullen Murphy
    I have to say that I am very pleased with the Trichler Law Center. Ernie handled my case in a very timely and professional manner. He kept me informed every step of way, I was very IMPRESSED in the way he worked with the defense attorneys to get me a very satisfactory settlement. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal assistance. Thank you for a job well done!!
