Experienced and Effective Truck Accident Attorneys in Texas
Underride Accidents | Serious and Catastrophic Injury
Approximately one in four fatal truck accidents involves an underride collision—where another vehicle slides underneath the trailer of a semi, big rig, tractor-trailer or 18-wheeler. Such an accident can be devastating, even if you are traveling at a very low speed, as the force of the impact can shear the top off your vehicle. These types of accidents can stem from a variety of causes—the trucker may have been trying to negotiate a turn or u-turn at night or in low sun-angle glare, or may have lost control of the truck. Unfortunately, the injuries suffered in these types of accidents are almost always serious and/or catastrophic. If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in an underride accident, you want a highly experienced and knowledgeable lawyer to help you pursue full and fair compensation for all your losses.

Our Representation in Underride Accident Injury Claims
When you retain us to help you recover damages after an underride accident involving a large commercial truck, we’ll start by conducting a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances of your case. We’ll travel to the scene of the accident, if necessary, to learn exactly what happened, and we’ll work with a team of experts, including accident reconstruction, medical and financial authorities, to prepare and present the most compelling arguments for your full financial recovery.
We handle underride accident claims involving:
- Trucks that intentionally pulled into your path, either to negotiate a turn or make a u-turn
- Trucks that veered into your path because of negligence by the driver, dangerous or defective parts on the truck, or because of poor roadway design
Our lawyers will help you seek compensation for all your losses, including wages and income, medical expenses, loss of companionship or consortium, and physical pain and suffering. We take cases involving all types of injury, from soft-tissue trauma to brain and spinal cord injury, broken bones, paralysis, permanent scarring or disfigurement, burns and amputation or loss of limb.
