Underride Accident Attorney in Phoenix
Experienced Representation When You Are Seriously Injured
One of the most horrific types of vehicle accidents are underride accidents
where the front end of a vehicle is carried under the rear of a larger
truck, usually an 18-wheeler or tractor trailer. An accident such as this
can shear off the windshield and roof of the smaller vehicle and cause
the occupants of the smaller car to impact the larger truck, resulting
in serious injury or death. If you or a loved one was in such an accident
and suffered injuries, please call our Phoenix truck accident attorneys
to begin work filing a claim for compensation.
In these types of claims, you need an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Don’t Suffer from the Effects of a Serious Injury Alone
Underride crashes can cause devastating injuries including:
If you have sustained an injury in an underride crash, an award-winning
personal injury attorney in Phoenix can investigate your accident and
determine if the truck driver was at fault by such things as failing to
have underride guards and reflectors on their truck.
Tractor trailers should be fitted with an underride guard which hangs under
the trailer in order to prevent such accidents. If the bars that make
up this guard are faulty or were installed improperly, you could have
a negligence case against the truck driver and/or the truck manufacturer.
Similarly, trucks should also have reflective tape to make the truck stand
out especially at night for other drivers. The lack of such “conspicuity
tape” could constitute negligence.
