About Underride Accidents and Compensation Claims

The specific accident that qualifies it as an underride type occurs when a vehicle slides partially or fully under a truck and shears off the top part of the underneath vehicle. Injuries are usually catastrophic with the most common being decapitation to the vehicle driver and front seat passengers. Other injuries to victims can include spinal cord injuries, fractures, traumatic brain injuries, and internal organ damage. Due to the terrible consequences of underride accidents, government agencies started requiring truck cabs to lengthen the surface of cab extending it closer to the ground.

The idea was to block a vehicle from getting into an underride situation. Most underride accidents involve the side of a vehicle and the front of a cab and the safety guard helps to lower the incidents of underride accidents. There are still millions of trucks on the roads, without the additional safety feature, that cause many underride accidents. An underride accident is not limited to an impact with a cab but may involve impact with another portion of a truck. It is important to speak with a truck accident lawyer following an accident that involves underriding, as seriousness of the injuries normally associated with that type of collision.

Insurance companies often attempt to assign fault to others and try to settle for less than an injury is worth. An underride accident due to negligence or reckless by a truck driver may result in an issue of liability. The responsible parties may be liable to the victims for loss of earnings, medical costs, pain and suffering and loss of companionship.
