Handling Jackknife Accidents in Georgia

Using our experience to successfully represent you!

18-wheelers are huge trucks that can be difficult to control while on the road. When a truck is unable to brake properly and is forced to come to a skidding stop, the trailer can swing out from behind and form a 90-degree angle with the rest of the truck. This is referred to as jackknifing and it can have dangerous consequences for smaller vehicles nearby.

Victims of such an accident can experience brain injuries, broken bones, disfigurement, and lacerations, all of which require extensive medical care. If you or a loved one was recently involved in a jackknife accident, it is imperative that you contact our award-winning Cumming truck accident lawyer today.

What causes jackknife accidents?

There are numerous reasons that a jackknife accident can occur and many stem from driver negligence. Although there are strict trucking regulations in Georgia, drivers often fail to adhere as they should.

The most common reasons for these accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Failing to brake properly
  • Poor road conditions
  • Driver negligence
  • Excessive speeding
  • Inadequately trained drivers
  • Lack of truck maintenance

Even if you are certain that the accident was a result of the driver's negligence, it can be extremely difficult to prove this in your personal injury claim. Most truck drivers are backed by powerful insurance companies and trucking corporations that will do anything to avoid bad press. You need an attorney who has experience with filing claims and can aggressively defend your rights.
