Jackknife Accidents in Dallas, TX

Dallas Truck Accident Attorney

Jackknifing of trucks occurs when a truck that is towing a trailer skids and pushes the trailer forward until the towed end winds up facing backwards. There are many different reasons that this can occur and if you or a loved one has been injured because of a jackknifed truck, you need to act quickly to retain the legal representation that you deserve. At Jackson Allen & Williams, LLP, our Dallas personal injury lawyers have more than 50 years of combined legal experience in providing aggressive defense for our clients throughout the Dallas area and we may be able to help you as well.

Most trucks are equipped with anti-jackknifing devices to ensure that these disastrous accidents do not occur. In the event of a failure of one of these devices, the truck may jackknife with sudden braking or going down a steep hill. Truck drivers that are injured because of a product failure may also be eligible to receive compensation from the defective produce manufacturer. If the truck is operating on icy or slick roads, the back trailer may swing widely and slide to one side, causing a jackknifing effect. Cars that are caught in the blind spot of the truck driver or that are passing the vehicle may become trapped and pushed by the jackknifing rig and passengers may receive serious injuries.

Who is liable in a truck accident?

As with most truck accidents, it takes the time and commitment of a dedicated personal injury attorney and crash forensics personnel to determine what exactly the underlying cause of the jackknifing accident was. When you work with Jackson Allen & Williams, LLP, our Dallas trucking accident attorney will review crash reports, police records and interview witnesses to determine who is liable for the incident. The driver, manufacturer or loader may all be held responsible for the cause of the accident. If you have been injured, do not hesitate to contact Jackson Allen & Williams, LLP as soon as possible and retain trusted legal counsel to help you receive the compensation that you deserve.
