Common legal issues facing you
Jackknife accidents are one of the most serious types of truck accidents we deal with at our law firm. As the name of the accident suggests, a jackknife accident involves the semi truck’s trailer and cab folding in on itself, especially if the tractor-trailer skids sideways at high speed. When these accidents occur, smaller vehicles can become trapped and crushed in the space between the truck’s cab and trailer.
You might think you don’t need a lawyer after a jackknife accident, especially if the truck driver or trucking company was clearly at fault. But these cases can be very complicated for many different reasons, including:
- The truck driver denies causing a jackknife accident.
- The truck driver blames you or another driver for causing a collision.
- The trucking company refuses to provide truck maintenance records.
- The trucking company refuses to provide truck inspection records.
- An insurance company pressures you to accept their lowball settlement offer.
- An insurance company denies your accident claim.
Whatever legal issues you’re dealing with, no matter how straightforward or complicated they might seem, we can help you get your life back on track.
How Mike can help you
Evidence builds strong legal cases. That’s why trucking companies, their insurance companies and their attorneys have probably already started investigating your accident. They’re searching for anything they can find that they can use to deny your accident claim.
They don’t intimidate us. As your attorney, we can launch a thorough investigation into your jackknife accident – from carefully reviewing your accident report to demanding to see the trucking company’s repair and maintenance records. Sometimes, some truck companies cut corners on maintaining their trucks, resulting in a serious truck accident.
This aggressive approach will hopefully convince insurance companies – and anyone else responsible for your crash – to make a fair settlement offer for your accident. And if they refuse to cooperate, we’re prepared to take them to court. Discover what an experienced truck accident lawyer can do for you. Schedule your free case evaluation today.
