Truck Accidents in Allapattah

Allapattah is a working-class neighborhood that was annexed by the city of Miami in 1925. It is northwest of Downtown Miami and only five miles from the Miami International Airport. The neighborhood’s location makes it a prime area for traffic. So does Allapattah’s economy. The area has numerous garment manufacturing businesses and wholesale outlets on Northwest 20 th Street between Northwest 17th and 27th Avenues, which bring in many commercial trucks. So does the open-air food distribution center. Additionally, Allapattah is a rapidly transforming neighborhood, and is posed to go through a significant real estate transformation. As construction begins on various properties throughout the neighborhood, residents will see more and more large vehicles and machinery.

Between the neighborhood’s typical commercial traffic, and the likelihood of construction in the area, there may be an increased risk of truck accidents.
