Nassau County Truck Accident Lawyer

Causes and Injuries Related to Truck Accidents

There are many different causes for truck accidents and many different injuries that can be sustained by the individuals who are involved in these accidents. Some of the more common trucking accidents include underride accidents, jackknife accidents and rollover accidents. Rollover and jackknife accidents are very similar accidents in the way that they start.

The driver hits his/her brakes and the back end of the trailer begins to slide around towards the front of the cab. In a jackknife accident the trailer will continue until it pins the cab in an unmovable position. In a rollover accident the entire truck will turn sideways and begin to roll.

Both of these accidents can be extremely detrimental to any nearby vehicles due to the size and weight of the truck. An underride accident occurs when a smaller vehicle rear-ends a trailer on a semi-truck. Each trailer has a guard rail that hangs down below the trailer and is reinforced to prevent vehicles from traveling under the trailer.

When this guard rail fails, the vehicle travels forward until it hits the truck's rear tires. Generally the tops of the cars are completely taken off by the underside of the trailer.
