Wichita Underride Accident Attorney
Our truck accident lawyers know how devastating these crashes are
When a vehicle becomes trapped underneath a semi-truck, these types of truck accidents are known as underride accidents. Because cars are smaller than tractor-trailers, severe injuries (including head injuries) and fatalities often occur because drivers and passengers in smaller vehicles become trapped underneath the trailer of the truck.

Why underride truck accidents happen
Underride truck accidents happen for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes of underride accidents include:
- Semi-truck not equipped with underride truck guards designed to prevent such crashes.
- Defective brake lights on truck not working, resulting in car crashing into back of truck.
- Truck driver stopping quickly without warning, resulting in rear-end accident.
- Semi-truck jackknifing, resulting in an underride accident involving another car.

What we can do to help you
The truck company the driver works for, its insurance provider and their attorneys will likely do everything they can to pay you as little as possible after your underride accident. That's because your accident-related expenses can quickly add up to thousands or even millions of dollars.
With so much money at stake, it's important that you take your case seriously right from the start. Otherwise, you could end up having to pay for your accident out of your own pocket. If you're not working due to your injury, such expenses can add up fast and threaten your financial future.
We know how to investigate such accidents and negotiate with trucking companies and their insurance providers. If they refuse to cooperate, we're prepared to take them to court.
