Causes of Jackknife Truck Accidents
truck accidents occurs when an 18-wheeler or semi-truck skids and causes the trailer to

is usually caused by sudden braking, which causes a trailer to either
skid out of control or rollover.
Common causes of jackknife truck accidents include:
- Sudden braking on slick, wet roads
- Sudden braking while driving at high speeds
- Uncontrollable acceleration
- Improperly adjusted brakes
- Improper downshift
- Mechanical failure due to lack of inspection or maintenance
- Under trained and inexperienced drivers
