Are you a victim of an accident along Interstate 75?

Florida is one of the most populous states in the United States, and millions of residents and tourists drive down Interstate 75 every year. This particular interstate is crowded all the time, and it is also one of the most dangerous places to drive in the state. Every year, I-75 sees an inordinately high number of serious and fatal accidents. 

Many people who travel to Florida for vacation note that reckless driving and speeding tends to increase once they cross the state line. One reason for this may be there are fewer law enforcement officers monitoring the behavior of drivers and their speeds. Drivers notice things such as swerving, tailgating and other behaviors that can increase the chance of an accident.

Possible solutions to the problem

You are probably well aware of the fact that I-75 is a dangerous place to drive. In the last few months, there have been several deadly accidents, even some that claimed the lives of children. It is clear that there is a safety problem on this road, but there is little agreement on what could be an appropriate solution.

There are groups that studied this issue and proposed various approaches that can help ease congestion and make traveling safer along the I-75 corridor. Some of these possible solutions include:

  • Building a new road through Alachua and Marion counties, which could divert traffic and relieve congestion
  • Building or designating truck-only lanes
  • Increasing law enforcement patrol, especially in high-traffic stretches of the interstate

You may also know that I-75 is a very popular route for large trucks and semitrailers. Trucks are also involved in a significant number of the accidents that take place on I-75. It is the responsibility of each truck driver to be vigilant and careful on busy and congested roads, taking care not to drive aggressively or act negligently. 

The rights of accident victims

If you are the victim of an accident that took place on I-75, you may have grounds to move forward with a civil claim. You may not be sure of what factors played a role in your accident or what your options may be, but you do not have to face the aftermath alone. 

It might be helpful to discuss your case with a legal professional in order to understand how to proceed. Personal injury claims are time sensitive, and you will find it beneficial to act quickly.
