There was an underride crash in Houston on December 25, 2022, just after midnight. Police reports indicate that a truck driver slammed into a parked rig, resulting in a fire that was fortunately put out.
When the Houston Fire Department arrived at the scene, they cut away the doors of the mangled wreck to free the driver, who was then airlifted to a hospital for specialized care. The driver of the big rig escaped unhurt from the crash.
The danger of underride accidents
Underride accidents are some of the most deadly, given that there is nothing much car accident safety features can do to protect drivers in high-speed crashes. Most underride crashes result in a fatality and in the majority of instances, the smaller vehicle occupants bear the brunt of such accidents.
The injuries suffered can be life-changing. A broken spine or severe brain injury can leave you incapacitated, while a permanent disability can turn your life upside down. It is only fair that you get the compensation you deserve after such a crash, something an experienced legal team can help you achieve.
You can claim compensation for a wide range of damages with your claim, from lost income and medical expenses to emotional anguish and physical pain. It helps to know what you need to do to get what you are entitled to after a road accident.
