Causes of Underride Accidents

Truck accidents account for a significant number of fatal accidents each year in West Virginia. Due to their massive sizes, the amount weight and the type of cargo that they carry, the wreckage from these accidents is tremendous. An underride accident happens when a passenger vehicle slides beneath an eighteen-wheeler truck.

These are the many causes of an underride accident:

  • Lack of or poorly maintained underride guard
  • Poor design on the underride guard or does not offer enough protection
  • The truck’s reflective tape has worn, faded, or is missing from the vehicle
  • Driver brakes improperly or does not have enough braking distance
  • Weather such as rain or snow affecting the road conditions
  • Driver negligence (Drinking and driving, traffic violations, falling asleep behind the wheel)
