Why Are Miami Highway Accidents Dangerous?

Highway accidents are among the most severe traffic incidents due to the high speeds and heavy traffic volumes typically involved. Miami maintains a complex network of highways, and the unique layout and frequent congestion on these roads increase the likelihood of multi-vehicle collisions and serious injuries.

Accidents on I-95 in Miami

I-95, known for being one of the busiest highways in the Miami area, sees a variety of accidents, from high-speed collisions to multi-car pileups. The high traffic density, especially during peak hours, often leads to rear-end collisions and sideswipe accidents as drivers maneuver through dense, fast-moving lanes. Speeding is a common issue, compounding other risky behaviors like aggressive lane changing, significantly increasing the risk of severe accidents.

Accidents on I-195 in Florida

I-195 is a crucial connector between Miami's mainland and the beaches, which means it regularly carries heavy tourist and local traffic flows. The mix of regular commuters and visitors unfamiliar with the road can lead to confusion and erratic driving behavior. Common accidents on I-195 include merging accidents and collisions at the exits, often exacerbated by distractions from scenic views and navigation devices. These situations can lead to serious injuries and fatal car accidents.

Accidents on I-395 in South Florida

I-395, another major artery in Miami, is notorious for its complex interchanges and heavy commuter traffic. Accidents on I-395 frequently occur near these junctions, where sudden lane changes and stops are frequent. Additionally, the fluctuating speeds and the proximity to downtown Miami contribute to a higher incidence of collisions involving abrupt stops, resulting in rear-end collisions.

What Types of Compensation Are Available After a Miami Highway Collision?

After a collision on a Miami highway, understanding the types of compensation available to you is crucial. At Friedman Rodman Frank & Estrada, we guide our clients through the complex process of claiming all the possible forms of compensation for the injuries sufferred.

  • Medical Expenses: Covers immediate and ongoing healthcare costs resulting from the accident. This can include hospital stays, medications, physical therapy, and any future medical treatments related to the injuries sustained.
  • Lost Wages: Compensates for earnings lost due to time away from work while recovering. This includes missed salary, wages, or other earnings and may extend to future lost earning capacity if the injuries continue to affect your ability to work.
  • Property Damage: Reimburses the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle and any other personal property damaged in the collision.
  • Pain and Suffering: Provides monetary compensation for physical pain and emotional distress experienced because of the accident. This is subjective and varies widely based on individual circumstances.
  • Punitive Damages: Although less common, punitive damages may be awarded in cases where the at-fault actions were reckless or egregious. These are intended to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar conduct in the future.

Each case is unique, and the compensation you may be entitled to will depend on the specifics of your situation. We are here to help evaluate your case thoroughly and advocate for the full range of compensation under the law.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
I can't express how grateful I am for Elizabeth Estrada, attorney, and Elizabeth Cantin, secretary, for all the hard work in order to defend me in my time of need. My lawyer and secretary spent time explaining each step and what was to be expected. Because of this I felt a part of the whole process and understood what was going on. Thank you so much for all your hard work!
