Our Nashville truck accident lawyers at Kinnard Law have provided hundreds of injured victims with the experienced and passionate legal representation they required in their time of need, and through our efforts have successfully recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for our clients. Contact us today if you were seriously injured in a truck accident to begin planning out the steps you need to take to move on to the next phase of your life.

How Do Underride Accidents Happen?

The federal agencies in charge of trucking regulations began requiring safety equipment, called rear-guards, intended to decrease the frequency of underride accidents, but these required rear-guards aren’t always enough to prevent a fatal crash. According to a recent study conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the connection between the truck and these safety devices isn’t strong enough to handle even a collision at low speeds and offers little to no protection in high-velocity impacts.

These types of accidents can be caused by a number of factors, including:

Injuries caused in truck accidents often result in massive rehabilitation costs and medical bills, and if your injuries were caused by someone else’s reckless or negligent actions then you deserve the chance to fight to hold them responsible in court.
