Riding a motorcycle in Tampa can be an enjoyable experience, but it is still fraught with danger. Whether it is other drivers who are not paying strict attention to the motorcyclist or due to the vulnerability that is inherent when riding a motorcycle, any crash can quickly turn into a fatal motorcycle accident. No matter the circumstances, those who have been affected by a wrongful death incident will probably want to understand what to do after it happens.
There are a multitude of dangers when a Tampa resident is out on the road as a pedestrian, bicyclist, motorcyclist or driver. Oftentimes, people on the roads are at risk of being involved in a wrongful death incident. When there is a loss of a loved one in a fatal accident, those who have been affected need to understand what to do next.
The loss of a loved one often leaves family members and friends with considerable grief. The sense of loss is often compounded when negligence seems to have contributed to the death. One mother experienced such a loss, and she has decided to file a wrongful death lawsuit against Walgreens for having a hand in the death of her son.
A motorcyclist was killed recently in an afternoon accident in Martin County. The accident occurred in the northbound lanes of the Florida Turnpike just south of the exit for Stuart and Palm City.
An unidentified woman was struck three times by three different motor vehicles on a recent Sunday morning in Orlando and died as a result of her injuries, according to Florida Highway Patrol investigators.
A hit-and-run accident can happen in a blink of an eye. It is not something that is generally planned by the person who ends up causing the accident and then driving away from the accident scene. Yet, in that single instant, a life can be taken, and a negligent driver can become liable for a wrongful death.
It is unfortunately a common occurrence that a driver following traffic rules is seriously injured or dead after a car accident. This type of accident occurred earlier this week in Spring Hill, Florida. An older woman who had a green light was making a left turn when a pickup truck slammed into her vehicle.
An 11-year old Fort Myers boy died last week because of an accident at his school football practice. His death was not brought on by an intense impact injury, which one may think might lead to death on a football field. Rather, this young boy died after he was struck by lightning.
