Truck Accident Attorney in Brooklyn
What are Underride and Override Truck Accidents?
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 Brooklyn truck accident attorneys can help you obtain
the compensation you deserve.
Common Causes of Underride Accidents
