Underride Collisions Resulting in Serious Injury

Truck underride accidents not only cause extreme catastrophic injuries and death, but they are also typically preventable. Unfortunately, some trucking companies and drivers do not take the proper precautions to prevent these types of damaging accidents. We urge you to call Rhine Law Firm, P.C., when you or your loved one has been involved in a truck underride accident in North Carolina.

Was Your Loved One Hurt Or Killed In A Truck Underride Accident? We Can Help.

Based in Wilmington, our comprehensive personal injury law firm represents residents of the surrounding communities in a wide range of truck crashes, including serious and often fatal accidents involving truck underrides.

Truck underride accidents happen when a vehicle collides with the back of a tractor-trailer, causing the vehicle to get wedged underneath the truck. Truck underride accidents are most commonly a result of:

  • The lack of a safety guard to prevent cars and other vehicles from getting stuck underneath trucks
  • Poorly designed safety guards
  • Missing reflective tape or reflectors
  • Obscured reflective tape or reflectors

These types of accidents often cause very severe physical damage, including traumatic brain and head injuries, dismemberment and other fatal injuries.

While the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires guards for all trucks and trailers manufactured after 1998, trucks manufactured prior to this date are not required to be retrofitted. The FMCSA requires that reflective tape and reflectors be used on trucks. Regrettably, some trucking companies and truck drivers have not taken these steps to minimize truck underride accidents.

Our Wilmington truck accident lawyers recognize the serious and tragic implications, and we are fully prepared to help you hold negligent commercial truck drivers and companies accountable for your losses. We urge you to call our attorneys today to learn how we can help you protect and exercise your legal rights.
