Types of Truck Accidents

Depending on the road conditions, weather, the state of the driver and the vehicle itself, a variety of different types of truck accidents may occur. Our committed legal team can conduct a thorough investigation into your personal injury claim in order to determine if negligence and recklessness caused your injuries.

The most common types of truck accidents include:

  • Air brake failure – Typically occurs when traveling downhill, air brake failure often results in the inability of the truck to stop
  • Blind spots – Makes seeing other vehicles difficult for truck drivers before changing lanes
  • Head-on collision – When two vehicles collide headfirst
  • Jackknife – When a semi-truck brakes rapidly and causes the trailer to swing outward, turning toward the front of the truck
  • Rear-end – When a truck runs into the back of another vehicle, which can be more devastating if the truck has extra weight in cargo
  • Rollovers – When a truck’s tires fail to grip the road, causing the vehicle to lose control, slide sideways or rolls over
  • T-bone – When a truck crashes headfirst into the side of another vehicle
  • Tire blowout – A tire blowout makes it difficult for a truck to maneuver, potentially causing even more damage
  • Under-ride – When a truck hits the brakes, causing smaller vehicles behind the truck to become lodged under the rear of the truck trailer
  • Unsecure cargo – If the debris or cargo is not properly secured, the load can spill all over the road and cause a major accident
