Historically, lawsuits against the manufacturers of cigarettes in the United States have been tough to win. Some Florida families have experienced this difficulty firsthand, even when they have been able to show that tobacco companies knew the dangers of their products. For those who have lost loved ones to lung cancer and other smoking-related diseases, however, the fight against manufactures was always worth the effort.
Looking out for others at all times on the road is a basic responsibility for all drivers and motorcyclists. When a motorcycle accident occurs, whether in the Tampa area or elsewhere, any driver involved is required by law to render aid to the victim if possible and report the incident to authorities. Whether or not the accident is the fault of the driver, leaving the scene of an accident is always a bad idea.
Commercial trucks can carry heavy loads, and in Florida, like elsewhere in the country, these can range from farm products to building materials to livestock. Trucking companies and their drivers not only must ensure that their loads are delivered on schedule but also that they travel over roads and highways safely.
A motorcycle ride around Florida can be a liberating experience and can get a driver to a desired destination faster and with less gasoline expenses. A drawback to riding a motorcycle is the limited safety protection for the rider and passenger in the event of a crash. When motorists exercise extra caution, a motorcycle accident can be avoided but a recent accident is exemplar of the injurious effects when a motorcycle meets car on the road.
