Los Angeles and Nevada Truck Accident Attorney Handling Jackknifing Cases

Were You Injured Or Involved In A Jackknife Accident?

A jackknife accident can be one the scariest types of accidents to be involved in. A jackknife occurs when a truck hauling a trailer, also known as an articulated vehicle, pivots where the truck and trailer are joined, resulting in the trailer and truck facing opposite directions, and making it so the truck is unable to move and loses control of the trailer. This is called a jackknife because it resembles a pocketknife or switchblade. In many cases, if the truck skids, or loses control, the weight and size of the trailer, along with the high speed and forward momentum it has accrued from traveling at a high speed, can overtake the truck and drag it along on the road, while the driver has absolutely no way to get back control of the vehicle.

Jackknife accidents are responsible for serious injuries and even fatalities, and can cause serious congestion, as the truck usually becomes stuck, with the trailer blocking many lanes of traffic, until it can be towed or removed. Jackknife accidents can be caused by the driver improperly braking, an equipment failure or defective part of some sort, or dangerous road and weather conditions.
