Truck Underride Collision Accidents Are Far Too Common

Truck underride collisions are some of the most dangerous types of truck accidents. Underride collision accidents occur when a vehicle fully or partially passes underneath a large truck or trailer. This often results in the roof of a vehicle being crushed and may lead to serious injury of passengers. Most often, rear underride collisions and underride collisions occur at night. When a truck that isn’t visible marked or lit merges into a lane, other vehicles may have difficulty spotting it. Reflective lights and underride prevention devices may help prevent underride collision accidents, but many older trucks are still out on the road. The skilled Chicago truck accident lawyers at The Horwitz Law Group are well-versed in the federal and state requirements for precautionary underride devices and markings such as lights. We have successfully represented clients who have been injured in truck accidents and have experience working with truck accident experts to determine the cause of an accident.
