Cincinnati Truck Jackknife Accidents
Let Our Truck Accident Attorneys Help
Jackknife accidents occur when a semi truck and its trailer skid due to
various factors. When the truck skids, the trailer swings past the cab
creating an extreme danger to other drivers and their passengers. When
a semi-truck jackknifes, innocent drivers can get caught between the cabin
and the trailer, often leading to
catastrophic injuries such as
spinal cord injuries,
traumatic brain injuries and
wrongful death. In a great number of cases,
driver negligence is involved.

Causes of Truck Jacknife Accidents in Cincinnati, OH
Many large vehicles such as semi-trucks are equipped with a pivoting joint
which allows them to turn more sharply. If the towing vehicle skids, the
trailer will push it all the way around until it is facing the other direction.
In many cases the trailer simply skids past the front of the vehicle crashing
into multiple vehicles as it continues down the highway.
Causes of jackknife accidents can include:
- Driver error due to fatigue or intoxication
- Driver negligence
- Mechanical failure
- Speeding or driving faster than weather conditions permit
- Improperly loaded cargo
- Failure to properly maintain the truck as required by federal law
It is extremely important to speak with a truck accident attorney to review
the situation and identify the liable parties as quickly as possible.
