About the Florida Turnpike

The Florida Turnpike is a highway that runs about 309 miles across the state of Florida from the southeast to the northwest. It runs from approximately 48 miles south of Miami, at Highway 1, through Miami Gardens (crossing I-95) before turning northwest toward its end at I-75 in Wildwood.  Known as “The Less Stressway”, the Florida Turnpike is one of the busiest toll roads in the country—running through major Florida cities such as Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, and Orlando.

Because the Florida Turnpike crosses I-95 and other major highways at various points throughout Palm Beach County and elsewhere in South Florida, it operates via a complex interchange system. Plans to widen and expand the Florida Turnpike and interchanges are already in progress, with work to expand the road from four to eight lanes expected to be completed in the coming years.

Frequently Asked Questions About Florida Turnpike Car Accident Claims

FAQ: What do I do if I was involved in a car accident on the Florida Turnpike or witnessed an accident?

First, pull over to the side of the road if you are able to do so. Remain calm and call 911 for assistance and medical help. If you are able, and after checking to see if anyone requires immediate medical help, try to:

-Document as much of the accident scene as you can by taking photos and videos,
-Get the contact information of any witnesses who pulled over on the side of the turnpike, as well as the other drivers,
-If you were an accident victim and are not seriously injured, get medical attention immediately to make sure you aren’t suffering from an injury that may have manifested immediately,
-Call a car accident lawyer experienced with handling accident claims involving the Florida Turnpike. We can help you proceed with your insurance claim and understand your legal right to compensation, as well as help you determine the cause of your accident.

FAQ: Why is the Florida Turnpike so dangerous?

The Florida Turnpike is a particularly dangerous stretch of highway for a number of reasons, not the least of which is high speeds. Factors contributing to the dangerous conditions include:

-The Florida Turnpike is used by tourists, who are traveling more slowly and are often unfamiliar with the roadways, and locals who often travel at extremely high speeds and use the road to commute on a daily basis,
-The complex interchange system makes it difficult for unfamiliar drivers to find their exits/entrances, leading to situations where drivers may rush across several lanes to make an exit or enter the highway at dangerous speeds (whether high or low)
-The Florida Turnpike is used by large trucks and commercial vehicles that can create heightened accident risks,
-The highway passes directly through a number of exciting tourist areas, meaning that drivers who are simply passing through are often distracted by attractions on the roadside.
