Experience matters

Because your health and livelihood are at stake. Accidents involving tractor-trailers, buses, or commercial motor vehicles involve legal issues unique to transportation law, so it is critical to retain legal counsel with experience in this specialized area. Any injury lawyer can handle a truck accident, right? Not if you want to extract the highest value from your case. To get the most out of your case, your truck law attorney must know the federal regulations on vehicle maintenance, driver fatigue, hours-of-service violations, and know where to look to find the hidden evidence. Paul Hammack at Hammack Law Firm has more than 19 years’ experience handling truck accident claims. Paul defended large trucking companies for over a decade, so he knows the industry and knows how to get the most out of every case.

Paul is a fantastic attorney. He is very easy to talk to, and provides excellent legal service. Highly recommended.
Dan Crotchett

Definitely one of the best accident attorneys around! Would recommend to anyone facing injuries from the result of an accident. Previous insurance company litigation makes Mr. Hammack a very well informed litigator when going against the insurance companies trying to minimize their loss. Be sure to contact Paul before contacting the insurance company, as they only care about their interests not the injured. Please note my 5 star recommendation. Thanks for reading.

Jackknife Accidents

The following diagram illustrates the issue:


1. The tractor begins to skid
2. The Driver steers into the skid, corrects it and drivers on.


3. If however, the skid is not corrected in time, the trailer will push
the tractor around until the cab hits the trailer.

Trailer slew or Trailer swing (This is not to be confused with jackknifing)

1. The trailer skids while braking on a slippery surface.
2. The driver releases the brakes and continues to drive forwards pulling the
trailer back into line . (This is not normally dangerous but if the driver doesn’t
release the brakers, the trailer could slide into a ditch, collide with parked
cars or oncoming traffic.)
