Lake City is located in Columbia County, Florida and is known as the “Gateway To Florida.” With a population of about 12,000 and in a county whose population is on the rise (Columbia County has close to 68,000 inhabitants as of 2006), Lake City has become a popular tourist destination as well as a stop for those on route to Southern Florida. Lake City got its name as the “Gateway to Florida” because two major highways, Interstate’s 10 and 75, converge within city limits. I-10 is one of the major east-west thoroughfares in the United States running from Santa Monica, CA all the way to Jacksonville, Florida.
With so much tourist and commuter traffic traveling through Lake City, truck accidents and auto accidents are an all too common occurrence. Unfortunately, tractor trailer and commercial truck accidents on I-10 and I-75 happen quite often. When these accidents are fatal due to another driver’s negligence, a Lake City wrongful death lawyer can help a family receive compensation for funeral expenses, loss of companionship, and other expenses.
Truck accidents truly present the largest danger on our highways today. If you are involved in a full speed crash with a semi-truck, it is equivalent to colliding with 20 cars – all at the same time. This is very serious and can have catastrophic consequences. In the aftermath of serious large truck accidents and tractor-trailer accidents, the Lake City tractor trailer accident attorneys of Farah and Farah in Florida are prepared to represent victims and help them receive the compensation they are owed. Due to the deadly nature of truck accidents, the advice of an experienced attorney is invaluable to accident victims or surviving family members.
