Involved in a Truck Accident?
Common Type of Truck Accident
A truck can be involved in a head-on, rear-end, side-impact, or sideswipe collision just like any other vehicle. Certain sorts of truck accidents, on the other hand, are caused by the unique characteristics of these vehicles. Some rear-end incidents become override accidents when a truck drives over the back of a passenger vehicle because to the truck’s height. This might collapse the vehicle or cut the top off.
Under ride accidents, in which a car slides under the side or back of a truck, are also a risk due to the truck’s height. When a vehicle makes a right turn, another form of collision that is unique to trucks is a squeeze play. Another car may be trapped between the truck and the curb if the driver swings the truck to the left before turning back to the right.
Trucks are also distinguished by their higher center of gravity and the mechanics of towing a trailer. Trucks are more prone to rollover accidents than passenger vehicles due to their higher center of gravity. A rollover occurs when a truck flips onto its top or side, potentially colliding with other cars or causing an explosion that injures those nearby.
A jackknife accident can happen when a vehicle comes to a sudden stop and the trailer continues to go forward while the truck cab slows down. The trailer may swing to the side at a 90-degree angle as a result of this. A runaway trailer can sometimes break free from a truck and drift out of control, colliding with other cars
