Jackknifed Trucks Are Dangerous To Other Motorists

Few tractor trailer accidents are more dangerous than a jackknife accident. When a truck jackknifes, the trailer swings around to the side of the tractor, often striking vehicles in multiple lanes of traffic. These accidents may be caused by truck driver error or mechanical defects.

At the law firm of Loughlin FitzGerald, P.C., we take truck safety very seriously. If you or a family member has been injured in a semitruck accident, our lawyers will take the time to investigate negligence on the part of the trucking company and driver. From our office in Wallingford, we represent injured people in New Haven and throughout Connecticut. To schedule a free consultation with an attorney at our firm, call 866-475-8805.

What Caused The Truck To Jackknife?

Tractor trailers are large, heavy vehicles that are prone to rollover and jackknife accidents. The underlying cause may be:

  • Driving too fast
  • Driving in slippery conditions
  • Sudden lane changes
  • Veering onto the road shoulder and then overcorrecting
  • Tire blowouts

Our lawyers often work with experts to investigate the causes of truck accidents and gather evidence necessary to establish liability.
