Florida has about 12,592 bridges, and while these help us get to and from Hollywood, Miami, and other communities, accidents on these structures have unique risks. There are fewer places to go on a bridge, for example and it can be harder to get out of the way to avoid a crash.

You’ve probably passed them on the road: accidents involving multiple vehicles and multiple drivers. These accidents can happen on Florida streets for a number of reasons. Sometimes, heavy traffic can mean one accident creates a chain reaction because other drivers don’t have enough space or time to come to a complete stop or to maneuver out of the way.

Chain reaction accidents can also be caused by high speeds on highways, where there simply may not be enough time to respond to avoid an accident. Truck accidents can also lead to multiple vehicle crashes, because the size and force of a truck can crash through multiple vehicles before coming to a complete stop.

Rear end shunt accidents happen when one car stops and the car behind them crashes into that first vehicle. Rear end collisions can cause serious injuries, including head injuries, facial injuries, spinal cord and back injuries, whiplash, and even fatalities. This is because a car suddenly braking or being shoved forward can snap your neck, back, and head forward violently. You can crash into your steering wheel or an airbag with enough force to cause serious injury.

Work zones include road work sites, construction job sites, and other temporary project areas where construction workers, contractors, and other professionals are building infrastructure or structures or are fixing them.

Work zones are a considerable risk for workers. In 2020 alone, 117 workers sustained fatal injuries on highway work sites. They also pose a risk of car accidents for those just passing through these areas.

Whenever you are in a traffic crash, it can be a frightening and upsetting situation. Getting the insurance settlement you need can be a journey and it can take time to recover from your injuries. However, if you have been injured on a highway, whether in a rear-end shunt collision, a side-swipe crash, a head-on accident, or any incident in Miami-Dade, you may face some additional challenges.

In Broward County, trucks are essential for commerce. They deliver goods to stores and businesses across the region and make deliveries to customers, too. Moving trucks, tanker trucks headed for construction sites, and large big rigs delivering shipments to stores are on the roads every day. While most trucks make their deliveries safely, the size of these trucks can lead to disastrous collisions.

If you have been in a collision with an 18-wheeler, big rig, or any commercial truck, you may have sustained serious injuries.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
