Override/Underride Truck Accidents in Vermont
Override truck accidents occur when a truck runs over a smaller vehicle. Underride accidents occur when a smaller vehicle slips underneath the trailer or cab of a truck. Both of these types of truck accidents often result in serious if not fatal injuries for the occupants of the smaller vehicle.
If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in an override or underride accident, you need a Vermont truck accident attorney on your side. The aggressive truck accident attorneys at Van Dorn & Curtiss are prepared to take your case, fight for your rights, and help you get the justice you deserve.
Causes of Truck Accidents
Some of the most common causes of truck accidents such as driver fatigue, aggressive driving, overloaded trailers, and safety equipment malfunction can all lead to override and underride accidents. Sadly, in many cases, these accidents could be avoided if everyone involved in intra- and interstate commerce upheld the highest standards of safety.
No matter what the cause of your accident, you may be eligible to seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and personal pain and suffering. One of our truck accident attorneys would be happy to assess your case for free and discuss all that you may be entitled to.
