Due to the height difference between passenger cars and big rigs, overrides and underrides are one of the most common types of truck accidents. Tragically, they are also among the most deadly.
When not fatal, victims of these types of truck accidents may sustain serious injury to the head, neck, back, and chest – injuries that requires both immediate and long-term medical care. When these injuries are the result of someone else’s careless behavior, victims have every right to seek compensation well in excess of the paltry offerings of insurance companies.
If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident with a commercial vehicle, please call the Duncan Firm at 877-638-6226 today to set up a free consultation with an experienced Arkansas truck accident attorney.
An override occurs when the trailer of a big rig goes over the top of a passenger vehicle. This may be caused by an overloaded trailer, vehicle malfunction, or simply poor maneuvering – all factors that cannot be adjusted for when driving next to a commercial vehicle.
Underride accidents occur when a smaller vehicle slides underneath a trailer. These may result from defective roadways, inclement weather, and other factors that can make seeking compensation more difficult.
