Underride Truck Accident Lawyer
Attorney For Underride Truck Accidents & Lawsuits
Truck Underride accidents still occur today because of ineffective safety underride equipment on many large trucks. To curb some of the danger of underride accidents the FMCSA has made it a requirement that large trucks must have rear impact guards and use reflective time on trucks. This regulation was put in to place in 1998 and only is a requirement for trucks after the same year. Unfortunately, this leaves many large trucks that do not have to comply with the law and without these protective measures in place. Furthermore, some question how much of an impact the rear impact guards and reflective tape on large trucks reduces or prevents truck underride accidents. According to an IIHS study on the effectiveness of truck underride preventive measures, it found that even at 35 MPH that the protective underride guard had issues with bending, tearing, and allowing passenger vehicles to ride underneath.
