    Freeway Accidents: What is the Difference Between a Freeway and an Expressway?

    Freeways are “highways” accessed by ramps and do not have any traffic signals allowing drivers to drive really quickly from one city to the other. Expressways are just roads that are part of the highway connecting the highway to the city and these types of roads have interchanges, stop signs, and signals.

    Drivers can find many different facilities on an expressway but there are no facilities on a freeway. This is why Caltrans employees blocks off lanes with signs and trucks during freeway repairs and freeway construction.

    Surprisingly, California has four highways that rank in the top 15 most dangerous highways in the United States.

    • State Route 99: Known for the highest number of accidents per 100 miles on a roadway in the United States, State Route 99 goes through Bakersfield, Yuba City, Fresno, and more. Drunk driving is a leading cause of a freeway crash on State Route 99.
    • Interstate 10: Connecting the Los Angeles ports to the entire country, interstate 10 is predominantly a truck route that sees a lot of truck-related accidents resulting in serious injuries from this freeway crash. More than 1,342 fatal accidents got reported in the last 5 years alone.
    • Interstate 5: Interstate 5 is dangerous at the points where it connects with Los Angeles County. Drivers who are not careful end up in a serious car accident requiring an experienced auto accident attorney to represent them.
    • Interstate 15: Connecting Los Angeles to Las Vegas, Interstate 15 sees a lot of fast drivers without wearing seat belts resulting in a freeway crash. More than 50% of the accidents on this road are due to drivers not wearing safety belts.

    Many freeways in California connect with expressways giving drivers access to various cities in the state. Negligent drivers often find themselves in a car accident on an expressway while getting off the freeway.

    Rights of Car Accident Victims

    According to state law, personal injury victims including those hurt in car accidents have the right to economic and non-economic compensation.

    Some of the economic damages victims can claim are medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and more while non-economic damages include pain and suffering, loss of companionship, punitive damages, and more.

    However, the law also restricts victims from getting non-economic damages if they have a DUI conviction or do not have car insurance.
