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.

Were you injured in a jackknife truck accident? Let our firm help!

There are numerous injuries that can be sustained during a jackknife accident. Some are very serious and require extensive medical treatment.

These injuries may include:

  • Internal injuries or bleeding
  • Burns or disfigurement
  • Broken bones
  • Whiplash
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Fractures

You are entitled to compensation for these injuries if you were involved in a truck accident that not your fault. It may be difficult to proceed when you feel overwhelmed by your injuries and the ordeal of the entire episode; but there is no better reason to retain legal counsel.

We can investigate the details of the crash to determine if the truck driver was at-fault or committed a traffic violation. We are committed to fighting for the justice and compensation you deserve.
