Freeway Accidents in Miami
Any accident can turn catastrophic, but freeway accidents in Miami tend to be especially serious, if not deadly. The primary reason for the increasing number of accidents on Miami expressways is a complex combination of high speeds, heavy traffic, and confusing onramps and offramps. However, regardless of the fact that driving on Miami freeways can be challenging, that isn’t an excuse to cause an accident; drivers are responsible for exercising the proper care when navigating any road, including freeways.

For the seventh largest county in the country, Miami-Dade County only has a handful of freeways. Of course, this means that the few freeways that Miami does have are almost always congested. Some of the most dangerous freeways in Miami include the following:
- Interstate 95
- Interstate 75
- Interstate 595
- Airport Expressway (SR 112)
- Palmetto Expressway (SR 826)
- Dolphin Expressway (SR 836):
- Florida’s Turnpike Homestead Extension (SR 821)
- Don Shula Expressway (SR 874)
- Snapper Creek Expressway (SR 878)
Regardless of which highway you were injured on, the Miami car accident lawyers at Friedman Rodman Frank & Estrada can help you effectively pursue a claim against the responsible party.Types of Freeway Accidents in Miami
Accidents on the highways tend to do more severe damage because of the high speeds involved. While permanent damage can occur when colliding with a vehicle at 10 miles per hour, there are several stretches of our freeways that require a minimum speed of 40 miles per hour, at which point an impact can easily become deadly. Below are some of the most common personal injuries caused by freeway accidents in Miami:
- Broken bones
- Neck and back pain
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Shoulder and knee pain
- Severe burns
- Amputated limbs
