While a car accident can happen anywhere and at any time, driving on a high-speed highway puts you at greater risk for serious injuries and fatalities should a crash occur. Vehicles on the highway generally travel at a much faster rate than vehicles on city streets and suburban roadways. Additionally, interstate highways typically experience heavier traffic volumes which can lead to catastrophic crashes and accidents often involving multiple vehicles.

Drivers and passengers who are involved in highway crashes often suffer some of the gravest injuries. When vehicles traveling at high rates of speed on busy interstates and highways collide the outcome can be deadly. Just like city roads, accidents that take place on Florida highways can be attributed to a wide variety of factors ranging from distracted driving, speeding, DUIs and road range to vehicle defects and poorly marked construction zones. Regardless of the cause, dealing with an insurance company after a highway collision has taken place can be a very difficult undertaking. An experienced highway vehicle accident attorney in our Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale or West Palm Beach locations can guide you through the process to make sure that you receive fair compensation for your injury or loss.
Tractor trailers and 18 wheelers are a constant presence on South Florida highways. These large and heavy vehicles create increased dangers should a collision occur. Because trucks are much heavier than traditional passenger cars, it will take a truck much longer to stop even if it brakes at the same time as a car. Additionally, with so many trucks, cars, motorcycles and other vehicles traveling on our highways, multi-car pile-ups are a common occurrence. Getting hit by a single vehicle is bad enough, but when you are involved in chain reaction accident with multiple vehicles the outcome can be devastating. Drivers and passengers hurt in these types of crashes tend to suffer very severe injuries, including spinal cord damage, broken bones and fractures, traumatic brain injuries, burns and other serious physical harms. In worst case scenarios, a multi-car pile-up can result in the loss of life.Let Hollander Law Firm Help You Move Forward After a Highway Vehicle Crash
