Prince George Truck Accident Lawyer

Few accidents are as devastating as collisions involving commercial trucks. Given their size differential compared to passenger vehicles, this often leads to catastrophic injuries. Our Preszler team of Prince George truck accident lawyers could help you pursue monetary compensation against the negligent driver.

While obtaining compensation from the trucking company or their insurer is possible, this process is never easy on your own. By working with a truck accident law firm, you could put yourself in the best position to recover compensation.

Unique types of truck accidents

In many cases, truck accidents occur in the same manner as any other crash. Trucks often collide with the front, side, or rear of another vehicle, just like passenger vehicles. However, there are some unique types of truck accidents that are particularly dangerous. Understanding these collisions could go a long way in preparing you for success on your injury claim. These examples include:

  • Jackknife accidents. A jackknife accident occurs when a truck slides sideways, causing cab and the trailer to go in opposite directions. These accidents earned the name due to the similarity to the shape of a folding knife the truck takes after it loses control.
  • Under-ride accidents. A fairly rare type of crash, the under-ride collision involves a passenger car becoming trapped under the trailer of a commercial truck.
  • Rollover accidents. When trucks lose control, sometimes they tip and roll over instead of jackknife. These rolling trucks can lay waste to multiple cars, people, or even houses.

No matter the type of crash, a truck accident lawyer could assist you throughout the entire injury claims process.
