Types and Causes of Truck Accidents
No truck accident accidents are alike, and each has the potential to be equally as devastating. With that in mind, truck accidents tend to fall into one of the following categories – our lawyers are experienced in the following:
- Rollovers. A rollover truck accident can be especially devastating, especially if the truck crushes another, smaller vehicle in the process. Rollovers are often the result of performing a maneuver erratically, such as taking a turn too fast.
- Squeeze play. A squeeze play accident is very scary. This type of accident happens when a larger truck moves to the left before making a right-hand turn – they do this because they need additional clearance in order to make a turn. In moving to the left, though, a driver may become confused about a truck’s intent and try to pass the truck on the right as such. As the truck starts to turn right, though, the smaller vehicle is squeezed between the truck and the curb, resulting in devastating consequences.
- Jackknife. A jackknife accident occurs when the tractor-trailer part of the truck swings at a 90-degree angle to the cab of the truck, much like a jackknife. In the process, the trailer may make contact with multiple different vehicles.
- Underride and override. Two of the most devastating types of accidents are underride and override crashes. An underride occurs when a smaller vehicle drives under the cab of a truck; an override crash occurs when a large truck drives over a smaller vehicle. These accidents usually happen when either a truck or a passenger car is following too closely/tailgating, or when a smaller vehicle cuts off a large truck.

Serious Accidents Result in Serious Damages
Any of the truck accident types listed above are likely to result in serious injuries.
