Semis and big rigs are commercial vehicles that consist of a trailer and cab that are usually joined by a fifth wheel or coupler. The cab and trailer (or multiple trailers) can move independently of each other and in an accident they can move in opposite directions, coming to rest in a position that resembles a jackknife, which is how these collisions got their name.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
