Jack Knife Accidents

Jack-knifed trucking accidents are especially perilous, both for the driver and nearby passengers or pedestrians. A jack-knife refers to the dangerous situation that occurs when a large 18 wheel truck goes into a skid and the trailer swings out and stops to form an angle of 90 degrees with each other. The chances of this dire quandary increase in inclement weather – jackknifing generally occurs when the drive wheels are locked when they reach a slick spot while the front wheels and the trailer keep rolling forward. These horribly destructive accidents can even cause multiple car pile-ups on the freeway, often with many casualties.

If you’ve been the victim of a trucking accident, don’t waste any time before seeking the reparations that you deserve for experiencing such a traumatic event. Experienced and knowledgeable truck accident lawyers can help you maneuver through the complex legal system to fight for your compensation.
