Jackknife Accidents

Jackknife Truck Accidents in Fort Lauderdale

Helping Those Injured by Out-of-Control Semi Trucks

One of the most dangerous and frightening types of trucking accidents is a jackknife accident, which happens due to the way a trailer is connected to a truck. Longer vehicles are harder to turn, so semi-truck cabs, which are small themselves, have trailers hitched to the back. This arrangement allows them to complete sharper turns. However, it also allows for jackknife accidents.

When a truck skids or loses traction because its driver braked too hard, its heavy trailer can swing out of control. If a driver does not adjust immediately, the trailer may jackknife, or swing around so it makes an L- or V- shape with the truck cab.

Jackknife accidents affect not only the truck driver but also other nearby road users. Cars may get stuck in between the two jackknifing parts of the truck or collide with a trailer that creates a barrier across the road.
