Miami car accident lawyers know that car accidents on the Palmetto Parkway, the “826”, can be different than crashes in residential areas. Parkway or highway accidents often involve much higher speeds, much greater damage and more severe injuries. The type of accidents on the Palmetto include rear end collisions, sideswipe crashes, and roll-over accidents. These highway accidents can involve cars, trucks and motorcycles. Injuries can range from soft-tissue sprain and strains to ligament tears or fractures and sometimes, even a fatality or wrongful death. There are many restaurants and night clubs in Westchester and the surrounding areas. Unfortunately, this can lead to drunk driving accidents and fatalities in Westchester.
Car accidents in Westchester neighborhoods can involve running red lights or stop signs, left turns, violations of the right of way, and rear end crashes. Bird Road presents additional problems. While it is not officially a highway or parkway, it is a 7 lane road in most places. It is usually very congested during rush hours in the morning and the evening. When it is not congested, there is a risk of drivers speeding which increases the risk of serious injuries and fatalities.Westchester Car Accident Lawyers in Miami
