If you or someone close to you has been injured in a truck accident, the experienced attorneys at Jacobs & Jacobs are here to help. We have the skill and resources to handle complex truck accident cases involving inadequate underride protection and other forms of negligence.
It is estimated that nearly half of all fatalities occurring in truck accidents are the result of inadequate underride protection.
The difference in height between the undercarriage of a car and that of a truck is approximately 15 inches. Underride accidents typically result in severe injuries and fatalities, as a car slides under the rear of the truck, often sheering off the roof and/or windshield.
Truck drivers can minimize the risk of underride accidents by having adequate rear lights and reflectorson the backs of their trucks. If negligence played a role in your truck accident, our attorneys are prepared to stand up for your rights.
If you or someone close to you has suffered a serious injury in a trucking underride/override accident, we are here to help. Please contact us online or by telephone at 866-668-7179 to speak with an experienced lawyer.
