Why jackknife truck accidents happen
Jackknife truck accidents refer to a specific type of semi-truck accident. In these accidents, the trailer from the truck gets whipped around and turned sideways, forming a V-shape with the truck cab which resembles the blade of a jackknife.
Other vehicles that become trapped in between the truck’s cab and trailer often get crushed, resulting in serious injuries or even fatalities. Worst of all, such accidents are often preventable. Common causes of jackknife accidents include:
- Speeding truck drivers who lose control of a truck.
- Inexperienced truck drivers who take a corner too fast.
- Poorly maintained trucks that have a mechanical malfunction, resulting in accident.
- Truck driver falls asleep at the wheel and loses control of semi-truck.
Whatever the cause of your accident, no matter how complicated or straightforward it might seem, we want to help you demand the compensation you deserve for your accident.
