Types of Truck Accidents

Obtain Counsel from a Ft. Lauderdale Truck Accident Lawyer

Large commercial trucks are present on nearly every highway in Florida and driving amongst them can quickly turn into a dangerous situation. Because of their enormous size, semi-truck drivers may have a hard time maneuvering their vehicles in emergencies. It can also be difficult for the drivers to see other smaller cars on the road.

If you were injured in an accident involving a semi-truck, you may be able to pursue legal action. A Fort Lauderdale truck accident lawyer from our firm can take on your case as if you are a part of our family. We have been serving the local community for forty years and our experienced legal counsel can be a vital asset to your case.

Most Common Types of Truck Accidents

Semi-truck accidents can happen for a variety of reasons, including fatigued drivers, blind spots, and dangerous road conditions. There are also several common types of truck accidents. Understanding these different types can give you a safer experience on the road.

Truck accidents happen on a daily basis and may include one of these variations:

  • Truck rollovers – Caused by tires that do not properly grip the road, leading to a loss of vehicle control.
  • Under-ride – When a semi-truck driver hits the brakes suddenly, smaller vehicles behind them may not react in time and slide beneath the rear trailer.
  • Lost load – Failing to correctly secure a truck load to the vehicle, which can result in losing the contents of the shipment.
  • Jackknife – Typically caused by braking too quickly and results in the truck's trailer swinging parallel to the cab of the truck.

It is important to know what to be aware of when driving alongside commercial trucks. If you know what to watch out for, you can be better prepared for potentially dangerous situations. It also equips you to react appropriately when in an accident, seeking the justice you deserve in a timely manner.
