All But One Of Southbound Lanes Of Interstate 95 Remained Closed As Crews Cleared Debris

The deadly accident involving a semi-truck hauling cars and a pickup truck also pulling a trailer took place around 6PM on Tuesday, November 26th.

Florida Highway Patrol (FHP), along with both the Titusville and Brevard Fire Rescue units responded to the emergency which was near mile marker 221 on I-95, close to the Garden Street exit.

At this time, officials have offered few additional details, though they have confirmed that one person was pronounced dead at the scene and another succumbed to their injuries after being transported to the hospital.

Early reports of the incident had initially indicated as many as six fatalities, though this number has now been retracted. It is not clear but it's possible that additional nearby drivers suffered injuries as well.

A tireless contributor to Legal Herald and experienced truck accident attorney, Michael Haggard is widely recognized as a fearless defender of victim's rights. He offered the following information for those who may have suffered injuries in similar situations:

"We use our cars on so many occasions, like for going to work or to visit friends, that we often forget how dangerous the roads can be. Indeed, accidents take place every single day in this county.

These accidents aren't always so serious but, when they involve trucks, semi-trucks, or tractor-trailers, they often are. This is because the sheer mass of these vehicles, particularly when they're carrying loads, very quickly increases the risk of suffering serious injuries or even death.

When these tragedies occur, many victims expect insurance companies to take the lead in ensuring that all damages are paid for; this is rarely the case.

In fact, insurance providers will often try many different tactics to reduce or even deny payouts. Additionally, once policies that were paying out benefits reach their limit, they will cease to provide compensations, whether the victims and their families are back on their feet or not.

In these cases, the only way for victim's to receive the compensation that they not only deserve but need may be through a truck accident lawsuit. With the help of an experienced truck accident lawyer, victims will know that their rights are being fought for in a court of law while they and their families can concentrate on what's truly important - recovery and healing."
