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.

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.
