Trust an experienced lawyer to help you recover

There are few things more frightening for a motorist than the sight of a jackknifing tractor-trailer up ahead. Jackknife truck accidents can cause severe and even fatal injuries, and they’re almost always preventable. If you’ve been injured due to a jackknifing truck, you deserve fair compensation.

Fort Worth jackknife accident lawyer Coby L. Wooten understands the seriousness of these accidents and knows how to fight for victims. Trust Coby and his team to hold the trucking company accountable and pursue the financial compensation you need to rebuild your life.

Negligence nearly always plays a key role in jackknife accidents

When a tractor-trailer jackknifes, the trailer folds up toward the cab, forming an angle similar to a pocketknife, hence the name. 18-wheeler trucks don’t just jackknife on their own. Negligence on the part of the truck driver or trucking company is almost always to blame. Some of the most common errors that can lead to jackknife crashes include:

Many truck drivers who cause jackknife accidents are inexperienced or undertrained. Others are distracted, intoxicated or fatigued. Regardless of the specific cause, the trucking company needs to be held responsible for failing to ensure that they have a safe, reliable driver behind the wheel of a safe, reliable vehicle.

Common jackknife accident injuries

Jackknife accidents involve semi-trucks that can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. So anyone involved in a jackknife accident is at risk for a serious injury. Some types of injuries sustained in jackknife crashes include:

Unfortunately, life-altering and even fatal injuries are all too common. That’s why accountability is so important.
