Jackknifing Truck Accidents

Jackknifing Truck Accidents

Jackknifing truck accidents are often deadly for passengers and drivers of smaller vehicles. When a truck's trailer jackknifes, smaller vehicles can slide underneath, run into tires, be forced off of the road, or face any number of similarly dangerous scenarios.

A trailer can jackknife under a number of circumstances including:

  • Poor weather conditions
  • Erratic or aggressive driving
  • Improper maneuvering
  • Sudden lane changes
  • Equipment malfunction

As with any truck accident, jackknifes may involve several liable parties, some of whom may be hundreds of miles from the accident itself. This is why you need an experienced Philadelphia truck accident attorney on your side who can investigate your accident, identify all liable parties, and fight to get you every penny you deserve.
