According to a spokesperson for the Florida Highway Patrol, a woman had to be airlifted to the hospital after a UPS truck rolled over along Interstate 75 in Weston. Florida Highway Patrol Troopers and Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue responded to the scene along the northbound lanes near Indian Trace, yesterday afternoon. The woman behind the wheel of the UPS truck was extricated by fire rescue crews. She was then airlifted to Broward Health Medical Center with injuries considered to be not life-threatening. Motorists were asked to seek an alternate route, as significant delays remain due to the crash. The roadway has been cleared and the crash remains under investigation. No further details have been released.

If you’ve been in any type of vehicular accident, here are 3 tips:
Tip 1: Take plenty of photographs. Sophisticated camera equipment is not necessary. Neither are the services of a professional photographer. Plan to share several of the more dramatic photographs with the insurance company when settling the claim. Do not rule out the possibility that there is damage to the vehicle that is not apparent to the naked eye. Have a mechanic inspect the undercarriage of the vehicle for damage to the frame that may not be observable in a photograph. Check out the mechanical functions of the car so that, after it has been repaired, it is operating as it was prior to the accident.
Tip 2: Photograph any visible evidence of your injuries. Expensive camera equipment and a professional photographer are not required. Place a ruler along the injury in the photograph to document the length of any contusions or abrasions. Have at least one photograph of the injured party holding the front page of a newspaper to avoid any question concerning when the photograph was taken. Additionally, Photograph the scene of the accident. Try to capture skid marks, gauge marks in the asphalt, signs, objects that may have obscured the vision of a motorist and any other physical evidence that could be relevant to your case.
Tip 3: Obtain witness statements. Make sure you obtain witness statements from all potential witnesses who support your claim. Record what the witnesses have to say after getting their permission to do so. The best private investigators are trained to take statements. It is possible to have the facts presented in a statement in a light most favorable to your claim.
