With I-95, Florida’s Turnpike, I-75, and many other heavily trafficked commercial access highways feeding into South Florida, it is no surprise that truck accidents occur frequently in the Miami area. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) reports that there are around 8,700 crashes involving 18-wheelers, semis, delivery trucks, and other commercial vehicles every year in Miami-Dade County. These incidents lead to dozens of fatalities and injuries to almost 1,400 victims, many of whom have legal rights through a truck accident lawsuit.
However, one of the factors that makes truck collisions more complicated than other motor vehicle crashes is that victims have options in terms of which court to file suit. The issue is something you can trust your Miami truck accident attorney to handle, but you should be aware of some general considerations.
