Many truck accidents are collisions with cars, trucks, motorcycles and other vehicles on the roads. In most cases, it is the other vehicle, not the 18-wheeler, that is seriously damaged in the wreck. This also means that the driver of the other vehicle and any passengers may be more severely injured and require emergency medical assistance. Our firm stands up for the rights of
A truck jackknife accident is a situation that results when a truck driver must quickly apply the truck’s brakes in order to avoid a collision or for any other reason in which the truck must quickly slow down. Since semi trucks are so large, it takes a great deal of force to slow them down. It is this force that causes the “jackknife,” which is the term for the trailer of the truck pivoting on its hitch and swiveling upward toward the cab, creating a V shape and crossing multiple lanes of traffic. This jackknife can cause a dangerous situation for other motorists, if they cannot avoid the truck in time or if truck cargo spills out onto the road and motorists have no time to react.
An overloaded or even balanced tractor-trailer can rollover, taking other vehicles with it and spilling its cargo all over the road. Many other drivers are often affected, injured and left wondering who is responsible for their injuries. Our firm can help after a truck rollover has left you injured and in need of compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
