Ocala Truck Accidents On I-75 Can Result In Serious Injuries
I-75 may be one of the most used north-south interstate highways in Florida. It begins a few miles north of Miami, and trucks can use it to haul cargo all the way to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and the Canadian border.
This could also include intrastate stops since it runs through many cities in addition to Ocala, such as:
- Fort Myers
- Port Charlotte
- Wesley Chapel
- Lake City
Some exits in the Ocala area where incidents could occur include:
- SR 200
- SR 40
- US 27
- SR 326
Of course, collisions also occur between exits, on entrance and exit ramps, and on state roads and highways where you access I-75. Sharing the road with large commercial trucks can be dangerous. When collisions occur, injuries are often serious.

While you grieve in peace, we can handle the legal process.
Building A Truck Accident Case Based On Your Ocala I-75 Crash
Truck accident cases are more complex than most collisions because of a certain legal doctrine that recognizes trucking companies as vicariously liable for their drivers’ negligence.
When we pursue compensation for our clients in these cases, an attorney from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine seeks to hold the driver’s employer responsible.
This requires us ll to show what happened and how the trucker caused the crash. Then we demand fair compensation based on the trucking company’s corporate liability policy or sue them in civil court. Sometimes, we use both of these options concurrently. Most cases settle without going to trial, but jury trials are occasionally necessary to get the best outcome for our client.
What Is The Timeline For Recovering Compensation?
There is no way to know how long it could take to settle your case or go to trial. However, we encourage you to connect with our team as soon as injuries allow you to make the call. Evidence disappears, bills begin to roll in, and there are deadlines.
The applicable statute of limitations generally sets the deadline for suing in an Ocala truck crash case. There are exceptions, but it usually includes:
- Two Years for personal injuries under Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a)
- Two Years for wrongful death under Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d)
