Fatal underride big rig crash results in $18.9 million verdict

Regular readers of our Raleigh personal injury law blog know that we have written in the past about underride collisions involving tractor-trailers. Underride crashes occur when a passenger vehicle goes under a big rig in a crash. In these crashes, the most vulnerable part of the passenger vehicle – the windshield, roof and side windows – are violently struck by the underside of the tractor-trailer. The result, says stopunderrides.org, is often “horrific death and debilitating injuries” for the driver and other occupants of the passenger vehicle.
