What are heavy truck under rides?

An under ride protection device extends below the trailer in order to prevent an automobile from riding under the trailer in the event of a rear impact.

What are the dangers associated with heavy truck under ride defects?

Many heavy trucks / trailers are defectively designed in that the vehicles do not have proper under ride protection devices.We represent numerous clients who have lost relatives as a result of this under ride defect. When a vehicle is allowed to under ride a heavy truck trailer, it results in severe injuries to vehicle occupants because passenger cars are substantially lower than the bed of heavy truck trailers. When appropriate under ride guards are in place, vehicles are prevented from under riding these trailers and severe injuries that occur in foreseeable rear end collisions are substantially reduced.
