Truck Jackknife Accident Claims in GA

Atlanta Trucking Accident Attorneys

While there is a wide range of issues that can lead to a truck accident, jackknifing is one of the most common and dangerous. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury due to a truck accident that involved jackknifing, be sure to contact the Atlanta personal injury lawyers at our firm right away. With more than 30 years of collective legal experience, we know how to provide the counsel you need during this difficult time.

What causes jackknifing accidents?

When the trailer connected to a truck swings out and gets stuck at nearly a 90-degree angle, it is called jackknifing. Once this happens, a driver essentially loses control as his trailer smashes into other lanes of traffic. Often times the trailer will begin to rollover and slide into other cars, creating serious damage and injuries.

Some of the most common reasons for jackknifing include:

  • Sudden braking
  • Worn out or faulty brakes
  • Failure to slow down before a curve
  • Driver inattention or distractedness
  • Speeding
  • Failure to adjust driving on icy or wet roads

Should I hire an attorney for my truck accident claim?

A truck driver's employer or insurance company will move quickly to cover up the cause of the accident or to shift blame on surrounding traffic. It is crucial that you retain legal counsel as soon as possible to ensure that your rights and injuries are not ignored.

When you hire our firm, we will investigate all the details surrounding the accident and work to make sure you receive fair compensation for your pain and suffering. At Kalka & Baer LLC, we truly care about helping our clients on the road to recovery. Let us work with you to secure a successful outcome.
