New York Truck Jackknife Accident Attorney

Involved in a Truck Accident in NY?

Experienced Attorneys Serving Albany, Saratoga Springs, Troy and Schenectady NY

NY Truck Accident AttorneyWhen a semi-truck is flipped on its side and the truck and trailer are turned in different directions, this is called a truck jackknife. This often occurs when road conditions are poor or drivers are not properly managing the speed of their trucks. Regardless of the cause, a truck jackknife can happen in seconds, leaving other drivers with seconds to react. Unfortunately in many cases, other drivers do not have enough time to react and serious accidents occur.
