trailers can hit and crush other vehicles before coming to a complete
stop. If you or someone you love was injured in a jackknife accident,
you should immediately call Palumbo Wolfe & Palumbo to schedule a

Information on Jackknife Trucking Accidents
Jackknifing is caused by adverse weather conditions, icy roads, or because
the truck driver suddenly applied the brakes. Whether the trucker was
speeding, or unfamiliar with the roadway, or trying to avoid colliding
with a stalled vehicle, the entire truck along with the trailer can skid
in this type of situation, causing the trailer to jackknife by the time
it comes to a rest. In such accidents, any nearby motorists can get swept
in the forces of the collision and sustain serious, if not life-threatening
injuries as a result.

As with all truck accidents, it is necessary to prove truck driver negligence
in a jackknife accident. Since trucking accidents are more complex than
auto accidents and involve the truck driver, the trucking company, the
insurance carrier, law enforcement, and accident investigators, it is
important to be represented by a Phoenix personal injury lawyer who will
advocate for your rights to fair compensation.
