Jackknife Truck Accidents
Fort Lauderdale Truck Accident Attorney
One of the most dangerous and frightening types of
trucking accidents is a jackknife accident, which happens largely due to the weight and size
of a tractor trailer truck. A semi-truck can weigh close to 80,000 pounds,
with most of that weight being carried in the trailer that is attached
to the truck. If the truck skids or loses traction on the road because
the driver braked too hard, the much heavier trailer can propel forward
and swing towards the front end of the truck. This causes the vehicle
to become out of control, most likely resulting in a devastating accident.
A jackknife accident affects not only the truck driver but also the drivers
and passengers of other cars traveling in the immediate vicinity of the truck.
