Clients who have been injured in accidents rely on this Fort Lauderdale, Florida Highway/Thruway/I-95/Turnpike/I-75 Accident Lawyer. Accidents happen on all sorts of roadways. However, because there is typically more traffic on highways than other types of roadways (and because vehicles typically travel at high rates of speeds on highways), there tend to be many crashes on highways in the State of Florida.
Because so many vehicles frequently exist on highways, highway wrecks oftentimes involve multiple vehicles. When multiple vehicles are involved in an accident, there may be multiple injured people. If this is the case, those multiple people may be stuck dividing up whatever automobile insurance money there is available to provide compensation. As such, it is important to contact an attorney and make a claim as quickly as possible.
Multiple-car pileups also frequently occur on highways and thruways. One vehicle may rear-end another, causing a chain reaction. When you are involved in a multiple-vehicle pileup, it may be important to try to remember how many impacts you felt. After all, the number of impacts you felt may indicate how many vehicles shared fault for the accident (i.e., if you felt two impacts, two separate vehicles may be at fault for the accident).
Additionally, because vehicles do travel at high rates of speed on highways, highway and thruway accidents tend to be worse and cause more damage than accidents on other types of roadways. As such, if you’ve been injured in a car crash occurring on a highway or thruway, it is extremely important to take pictures of the damage to the various vehicles involved in the wreck. Since the damage to the vehicles will most likely be eventually repaired (or the vehicles will be disposed of if they’re deemed to be total losses), you will want to be able to document later in the case exactly what the damage looked like at the time of the collision.

Because there is typically such high speeds and forces involved in highway and thruway accidents, death can unfortunately result. When this occurs to your loved one, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death case on your loved one’s behalf. In a wrongful death case, you or another family member/relative will act as the technical “Plaintiff” and bring the case on your loved one’s behalf. The beneficiaries of the estate (i.e., the decedent’s survivors) will receive the proceeds from the case.
Because there are typically multiple lanes of traffic on highways and thruways, sideswipe/side impact accidents can occur as vehicles attempt to change lanes improperly or without warning (i.e., using their “blinkers”/light signals). Sideswipe/side impact crashes can cause various injuries, included herniated cervical/neck discs.

Hit and run accidents also frequently occur on highways and thruways. When this happens, you may be stuck in a situation where you are trying to discover the identity of the driver that caused the accident. One thing you may be able to do is to try to determine which exit the driver who caused the accident left the highway. This can be valuable because you may be able to look at the red-light cameras at neighboring intersections (if there are any). This footage can potentially reveal the identity of the driver who caused the accident.Vigorous Representation Provided by this South Florida Highway/Thruway/Freeway/I-95/Turnpike/I-75 Accident Attorney
Nevertheless, if you believe the driver who caused your hit-and-run accident may have been captured on a neighboring red-light camera, it is important to try to get the surveillance from the red-light camera as quickly as possible. This is because such video cameras typically work on “loops,” meaning that they tape over themselves every so often. If you don’t retrieve the footage within a certain amount of time, then it can be lost forever.
Additionally, if your hit-and-run crash occurred on Florida’s Turnpike, then you may be able to determine the identity of the other driver by getting information from the SunPass Toll booths.

I-95 in Florida now contains “Express Lanes” which allow drivers in those lanes who pay an extra fee to go faster. While convenient, such Express Lanes can be dangerous as drivers enter into and exit them – and wrecks can result.
Additionally, drivers often “fail-to-yield” as they are entering/exiting highways and thruways, and accidents can result from this as well.
