Arkansas Trucking Accidents and Carriage Underride Lawyers
Carriage underride is often the most tragic and devastating type of trucking accident. When a car or motorcycle crashes into the undercarriage of an 18-wheeler truck, the passengers can get swept underneath the trailer of the truck, resulting in extremely serious and sometimes deadly injuries. These types of trucking accidents are referred to as underride collisions because the smaller, passenger vehicle becomes trapped under the larger, 18-wheeler truck.
Federal regulations set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration require that all tractor trailers, semi-trucks and 18-wheeler trucks have underride protection. Underride protection is metal guarding placed at particular points on the truck to prevent passenger vehicles from sliding underneath a trailer in a trucking accident. Unfortunately, many trucks are still not equipped with this type of protection. Underride protection can prevent serious injuries like passenger vehicle decapitation.
