Did you know there is an average 15-inch height difference between the top of a passenger vehicle and the underside of a tractor-trailer? It’s this height difference that allows for truck accidents involving override and underride to occur, and both of those events can easily result in serious or fatal injuries to the occupants of the smaller vehicle.
Override accidents occur when the cab of a semi-truck runs over a smaller vehicle. This may be the result of things such as brake failure, aggressive driving/speeding, or tire blowout. Underride accidents occur when a smaller vehicle slides underneath a cab or trailer and is subsequently dragged until the truck stops.
Following either of these events, you need an experienced Bakersfield truck accident lawyer on your side as soon as possible to help ensure you are treated fairly and provided the full compensation you are due.
