Jackknife Crashes

A “jackknife” truck accident typically occurs when a large commercial truck on the road is sideswiped and the truck’s back swings to the side, creating a wall which partially or fully obstructs the road. These accidents often involve three or more vehicles rather than just two, and can result in serious injuries and even death. If you or a loved one has been in an accident involving a large truck, we at Agruss Law Firm are here for you every step of the way to ensure that your rights are protected and you are fully compensated for your injuries and losses, and this includes working with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure a favorable settlement.

Unfortunately, the circumstances of a jackknife accident often make them unavoidable for drivers of passenger vehicles, as they are quickly left with no options for avoiding impact, be it with the truck ahead or a vehicle behind them. The resulting injuries can be very serious and may include:

  • Permanent brain damage or physical disabilities;
  • Spinal cord injuries;
  • Partial or full paralysis;
  • Crushed limbs;
  • Skull fractures;
  • Whiplash;
  • Internal bleeding/organ damage;
  • Severe burns;
  • Wrongful death.

While driver-error is the most common cause of accidents involving large commercial trucks, the trucking company and/or truck’s manufacturer may also be legally liable if improper vehicle maintenance or defective design of vehicle-parts directly resulted in the accident and your injuries. Our experienced personal injury attorneys will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of the accident to determine which parties are legally liable and ensure that you are fully compensated for the damages you’ve sustained.

We at Agruss Law Firm are proud to serve our fellow citizens in personal injury cases, especially when you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving a large truck, and we are fully committed to protecting your rights and ensuring that the other party is held legally accountable when negligence occurs. We will fight until the very end to ensure that you are fully compensated for all injuries and losses resulting from the accident, including medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering, and you won’t owe us a dime for our services.
