Jack-knife tractor trailer accidents can lead to catastrophic injuries, even wrongful death.
If you are seriously injured, or lost a loved one, as the result of being hit by another vehicle, you would typically file a lawsuit against the negligent driver. If you are hit by a commercial truck, there may be multiple parties involved, including the driver, his/her employer, the truck manufacturer and the truck’s mechanic, to name a few. The number of potential parties alone adds a level of complexity to your case necessitating the need for an experienced personal injury attorney who will fight to ensure the largest possible settlement.
A multi-vehicle crash in Lake Wales, Florida left one man in serious condition. Police said that the crash began when a semi-tractor trailers rear-ended another semi, causing it to jack-knife. The driver of an SUV tried to swerve, but could not avoid hitting the jack-knifed semi. The SUV was then hit by a pick-up truck and a third semi. Orange juice barrels inside the second semi spilled along the roadway. Fifty gallons of diesel also leaked into the roadway as a result of the crash. The driver of the SUV suffered serious injuries, but is expected to recover. There were no other injuries involved in the crash. The investigation in ongoing, but police say fog was heavy in the area.
Even before the investigation results are in, the injured victim may want to consider filing a personal injury lawsuit to recover compensation for damages.
