Jackknife Accidents

Hurt in an accident? Our Hartford injury lawyer can help!

A tractor which is pulling a trailer can sometimes skid while braking and can cause the trailer to swerve and face the opposite direction of the cab. This can be a serious hazard to oncoming traffic in the other lanes and cause devastating accidents. If you or a loved one were hurt in a jackknife accident, our Hartford personal injury lawyers can come to your aid by filing a claim for compensation.

Cicchiello & Cicchiello, LLP is fully committed to defending the rights of the injured when they are hurt through no fault of their own. Our firm boasts more than 40 years of combined legal experience which is backed up by having recovered millions of dollars for personal injury and employment clients. Further, we have been included in the list of Super Lawyers® Rising Stars each year from 2010 to 2014 thanks to our professionalism and successes in court.

What can I be compensated for?

Jackknife accidents can be caused by any number of factors such as speeding or impurely adjusted brakes on the truck. If we can establish negligence on the part of the driver or other parties, we can recover needed financial damages for you.

Compensation can be used to cover:

  • Ambulatory costs
  • Emotional trauma
  • Property damage
  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Prescription medication

You could also be eligible for a wrongful death suit if you lost a loved one in a jackknife accident. At Cicchiello & Cicchiello, LLP we can investigate every aspect of your accident and determine exactly who is at fault and work to recover the maximum damages you are entitled to.

It may be the case that the truck driver was not to blame for the accident but the truck was loaded improperly or the truck was not maintained correctly. In this case we can hold any of these parties responsible for your injuries and file a claim against them.
