Jonesboro Georgia Truck Accident Attorney

When semis are fully loaded, they can weigh upwards of 80,000 pounds, and their massive size leaves other motorists at immense risk in truck accidents. If a truck driver leaves you injured in a truck accident, it’s time to consult with an experienced Jonesboro truck accident attorney.

Common Types of Truck Accidents

While truck accidents can take virtually any form, some of the most common – and the most dangerous – include:

  • Rear-End Accidents – Trucks require much longer stopping distances than passenger vehicles do, and when a truck driver fails to take this into careful consideration, life-threatening rear-end accidents can be the result.
  • Underride Accidents – Trucks ride much higher off the road than other vehicles do, and when truck drivers fail to exercise the necessary caution, they increase the risk that other motorists will end up lodged within their undercarriages (in underride accidents).
  • Jackknife Accidents – A truck’s cab and its trailer are linked together by a massive hitch that allows the two parts to move in coordination but separately. When truckers take curves or exits too quickly (or engage in other dangerous driving practices), the cab and trailer can actually fold in on one another (in the same manner that a jackknife folds shut).
  • Rollovers – Semis are slim in comparison to their height, and this leaves them especially vulnerable to rolling over in high winds and other dangerous driving situations.
