Understanding Jackknife Accidents

What is a Jackknife Accident?

A jackknife accident occurs when a truck towing a trailer skids, causing the trailer to swing out to the side and form a 90-degree angle with the truck's cab, resembling a folding pocket knife, or "jackknife". These accidents are particularly hazardous due to the potential for multi-vehicle collisions and severe injuries.

While it may appear that jackknife accidents occur randomly, the reality is that a majority of them are entirely avoidable. Often, these incidents can be attributed to negligence that could have been mitigated with increased caution and attentiveness. 

Injuries Commonly Suffered in Jackknife Accidents

The Toll on Victims

Victims of jackknife accidents often suffer severe, life-altering injuries, including:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs): Severe collisions may result in head injuries, ranging from concussions to traumatic brain injuries.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: The abrupt and forceful nature of the accident can lead to spinal cord injuries, causing paralysis or long-term disabilities.
  • Broken Bones and Fractures: The impact of a jackknife accident can cause fractures and breaks, affecting various parts of the body.
  • Internal Injuries: Blunt force trauma can cause internal injuries to organs, potentially leading to life-threatening complications.
