Accidents Related to Trucking Companies in Interstate Highways

Interstate highways in Florida, including the I-75 are usually high-traffic and higher-speed roadways. They are also essential for the trucking industry, as these are the routes that commercial trucks use to get cargo to and from the state. Unfortunately, interstate highways are often the site of serious truck accidents. Some of these expressways travel to and from Miami, since Miami is the largest city in the area. When accidents occur on these highways, the results are often devastating. You may have heard about highway closures caused by accidents on the I-75 and other major highways.

If you have been injured in a truck accident in Miami and that accident occurred on an interstate highway, you may want to consult with a local personal injury attorney. These cases are often quite complex and require an experienced attorney. Truck accidents on Miami interstate highways are often multiple-vehicle collisions involving multiple plaintiffs and defendants. In addition, the high speed on highways means that the injuries caused by these accidents are often quite severe and the possible compensation in these cases may need to be quite high to cover a victim's injuries.

Interstate Trucks and Accidents

Commercial trucks traveling on interstate highways must abide by federal laws designed for commercial trucks. These federal laws regulate hours of service, licensing, weight limits, and other issues. However, not all truck companies and drivers abide by federal rules. When these rules are broken, accidents can occur. When accidents and injuries do take place on interstate highways in Miami, it can be challenging for victims to get fair compensation for their injuries. Truck companies, drivers, and other liable parties are often from outside the state and this can make it more challenging to pursue justice. It often requires an experienced attorney with a grasp of local and federal regulations to pursue this type of claim.

Protecting Your Rights After a Truck Accident

Truck accident cases in Miami are often quite complex and require the intervention of a personal injury attorney in order to ensure that victims get the fair compensation that they deserve. Although victims are entitled to fair compensation under the law, insurance companies often try to settle claims quickly and inexpensively. This can mean that there is a gap between the compensation money and the total real cost of an injury for a victim. Unfortunately, if a victim signs away their rights and accepts insurance money with no legal guidance, they may have no recourse to pursue further action if it proves that the compensation does not cover the full cost of their injuries. Insurance companies protect powerful truck companies with teams of attorneys and investigators. Victims of traffic accidents in Florida need experienced personal injury attorneys to defend their rights and to protect their interests.
