New York City Underride/Override Accident Attorney

What are Underride and Override Trucking Accidents?

Unfortunately, commercial trucking accidents occur frequently every year, posing a significant danger on the road. Due to the tremendous size of 18-wheelers and “big rigs” compared to ordinary passenger vehicles and motorcycles, they are often involved in collisions when these massive trucks collide so severely with a passenger vehicle that the structures of both become entangled with each other.

There are two ways to classify these types of accidents: underride accidents and override accidents. When the smaller vehicle collides and rests beneath the truck’s undercarriage, it is considered an underride accident. An override accident occurs when the front end of a large truck runs over a smaller motor vehicle. If you or a loved one sustained serious, potentially fatal injuries, our New York City truck accident attorneys can help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

Common Causes of Underride and Override Accidents
