Freeways are often the site of not only heavy traffic but also high-speed traffic - a deadly combination when a collision occurs. Freeway accidents are more likely to involve multiple vehicles, in part because of the higher speeds and the density of cars on these roads. In addition, freeway car accidents in Miami are also more likely to involve permanent injury and fatalities, since the high speed involved results in tremendous force when two cars or multiple vehicles collide.
If you have been seriously injured in a car accident on a freeway in the Miami area, there's no need to go through the legal and recovery process alone.

Expressways and Freeways in Miami
Miami has many freeways, which are usually called expressways by locals. These routes, including Florida 878 (Snapper Creek Expressway), Interstate 395 (Florida 836), Florida 112 (Airport Expressway), Florida 836 (Dolphin Expressway), the I-75, Florida 874 (Don Shula Expressway), and Florida 924 (Gratigny Parkway), are the site of many accidents each year. The I-75, especially, is the site of many serious accidents. There are many theories as to why these roadways see so many accidents. Most experts agree that the high number of cars on these expressways as well as the high speed of vehicles on these roads contribute to the high rate of accidents. Unfortunately, the higher speeds allowed on freeways also increases the risk of fatal car accidents and serious car accidents on these Miami roads. When drivers choose to drive distracted, inebriated, or tired on the freeways, the results can be even more devastating than on side streets. When these types of drivers lose control of their cars they can cause multiple car accidents that result in head injuries, spinal cord injuries, and other serious injuries. Each year, victims are rushed from freeways to Miami emergency rooms with burn injuries, broken bones, and life-threatening injuries.
