Semi Truck Accidents on Expressways
Expressways are critical to trucking in America. These divided highways with controlled access are often used for high-speed traffic, including commercial truckers delivering time-sensitive goods across the United States. As a result of the high rate of speed on expressways, expressway accidents often result in major injuries or fatalities.
Expressways do not conform to standards set for interstate highways in America. Because of this, they are numbered as state highways or U.S. highways. Many freeways, highways and interstates are actually expressways.
Expressways that frequently appear on lists of “America’s most dangerous roads” include the Cross-Bronx Expressway in New York and sections of I-75 in southwest Florida.
Act Quickly After an Expressway Collision
Once an expressway crash has been reported to an insurance company, claims adjusters, professional investigators, experts and attorneys begin working for the trucking company and other possible defendants immediately. These people are interviewing witnesses and gathering evidence to help their clients deny legal responsibility for the accident. At every step, they are preparing the strongest possible case to limit their potential liability. Why shouldn’t you have the same opportunities to present a strong claim? One of the jobs of a personal injury attorney is to minimize or erase the defendants’ advantage over the injury victim and help the expressway accident victim secure fair compensation.
