Islamorada, Florida

Islamorada is a village in Monroe County, Florida, and more specifically, it is in the upper portion of the Florida Keys. The village encompasses Plantation Key, Windley Key, Upper Matecumbe Key, Lower Matecumbe Key, and Tea Table Key. If you were to drive from Miami, it would take you between an hour and hour and a half to get to Islamorada, which you can find between mile marker (MM) 90 and MM 72 on the Overseas Highway. In addition to the islands, Islamorada encompasses the Channel Two Bridge and the Tavernier Creek Bridge.

The village, spread across the five islands, has a population of more than 6,000 people. However, the number of people on the islands swell during tourist season. Many Americans and those from overseas come to Islamorada on vacation. It is known for its fishing and water activities. All of the industries that thrive due to this tourism require bringing in supplies, which is why you may see semi-trucks, refrigerated trucks, and moving and delivery trucks coming into and out of Islamorada. Commercial trucking is necessary to a variety of reasons, but the increase in trucking traffic can increase the risk of crashes. If you or a loved one were involved in a truck wreck on Plantation Key, Windley Key, Upper Matecumbe Key, Lower Matecumbe Key, or Tea Table Key, call a truck accident lawyer for Islamorada right away.

Common Causes of Trucking Accidents in Islamorada

Commercial truck accidents happen for all sorts of reasons. At Gerson & Schwartz P.A., our truck accident attorneys for Islamorada are here to represent you if you were injured or a loved one was killed due to:

  • Truck Driver Speeding

  • Aggressive or Reckless Truck Driving
  • Improperly Loaded Trucks
  • Inadequately Secured or Unsecured Cargo
  • Inadequately Secured or Labeled Hazardous Materials (Hazmat)
  • Truck Mechanical Failure
  • Inadequate Truck Maintenance

In some truck accident claims, the truck driver is at fault for the crash. In this situation, the trucker’s employer, the motor carrier, is likely liable for your injuries. However, truck drivers are not always at fault. The motor carrier may be liable due to improper maintenance, or the maintenance provider may be liable for failing to take care of the trucks like they were hire to. If a truck defect led to the crash, then a vehicle or parts manufacturer may be responsible.
