Rear-End Collisions: The Alarming Outcome of Misjudged Braking Distance

Truck rear-end crashes can be catastrophic. Due to their immense size and substantial weight, trucks require an extended braking distance which increases the risk of rear-ending smaller vehicles. If you’ve suffered injuries in a truck rear-end accident in Georgia, you could be eligible for compensation for your losses. Our dedicated team at Meeks Impact Law is committed to guiding you through the complexities of the legal system and aggressively defending your rights.

Jackknife Accidents: The Perils of a Swinging Trailer

Named after the shape of a folding pocketknife, a jackknife accident happens when a truck’s trailer swings out uncontrollably to the side. These incidents often result from sudden braking, causing the trailer to swing dangerously out of control. A jackknife accident can trigger multi-vehicle collisions and lead to serious injuries.

The Underrated Threat of Underride Accidents

An underride accident involves a smaller vehicle colliding with the rear of a truck, subsequently sliding underneath the trailer. Given the occupants’ vulnerability in such scenarios, these accidents often result in severe injuries or even fatalities. It’s important to note that there are  specific laws and regulations pertaining to truck underride guards to mitigate such incidents.

Rollover Accidents: When Trucks Capsize with Devastating Consequences

Rollover accidents occur when a truck loses control, flipping onto its side or roof. This can result from factors like excessive speed, improper cargo loading, or abrupt maneuvers. Rollover incidents can result in grave injuries and extensive property damage.
