Homestead Swinging Turns

Big rigs and tractor-trailers making a turn will often turn very widely because the tractor-trailer part of the truck can swing wide. Swinging turns can easily lead to a car accident if a car becomes stuck between the curb and the swinging trailer. If you have been injured in this type of truck accident in Homestead, contact Flaxman Law Group for a free case evaluation. Flaxman Law Group attorneys have worked on many wide turn and squeeze play accident cases and can give you advice about how much your car accident claim may be worth.

Why Do Swinging Turns Happen?

There are many reasons why car and truck accidents occur at turns:

  • The cab of the tractor-trailer may not be attached correctly and the trailer may become loose or dislodged during a fast turn
  • Trucks may speed, causing the tractor-trailer part of the truck to fishtail
  • Truck tire issues may cause tire blowouts, which can cause a truck tractor trailer to swing out
  • A car may be in the truck's blind spot, and the truck driver may not notice that they are in danger of crashing the vehicle
  • And overloaded or incorrectly loaded truck may swing wide because of shifting cargo or too much weight
  • Mechanical failure can cause swinging turns

No matter what has caused the accident, if you've been injured at an intersection accident or during a turn, is important to get answers. In many cases, accidents at intersections and turns are caused by recklessness or negligence and in many cases this means that you can seek compensation for your injuries so that you do not have to face bankruptcy and financial distress due to your injuries, lost income, and other expenses.
