Everyone knows to exercise extreme caution when sharing the road with a large truck, as their slow reaction time and sheer weight and size makes them a formidable force. If a regular vehicle strikes a slow-moving or stopped truck from behind, or a truck cuts a vehicle off without paying attention, this usually results in the deadliest of accidents--an underride accident. Underride accidents result in devastating injuries, if not death--requiring the immediate counsel, care, and representation of trusted Oklahoma underride accidents lawyers such as ours at Martin, Jean & Jackson.
