Being a distracted driver is dangerous. Distracted driving is often linked to texting and driving, since that is one of the most prominent reasons for drivers to be distracted today. However, there are other ways a driver can become distracted, such as visual, manual and cognitive distractions. Knowing these dangers can help drivers avoid them, but it can also aid people who suffer a serious injury in an auto accident to know whether or not a driver who was distracted might have caused the crash.
Aside from motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles, peddling a bicycle allows the rider to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors in Tampa, Florida, while at the same time being cost efficient and more environmentally friendly than other vehicles. However, bicyclists are no different from motorcycles when it comes to risk of injury on the road. Cyclists are more vulnerable to serious injury even in a slight collision with a motor vehicle.
Impaired driving is a serious offense in Florida. When drunken driving leads to an auto accident that injures or kills other motorists, the state has a strong interest in removing that driver from the road and imposing penalties to prevent reoccurrences of such behavior and to provide victims with some sense of relief and justice. One recent injury car accident in Ocala is about to test that theory.
Just two days before Christmas, a 46-year-old mother died near Port St. Lucie when her motorcycle collided with a minivan that pulled out in front of her. The woman was thrown from her motorcycle and died at the scene.
A trip to the hardware store or grocery store is usually a fairly uneventful activity. One finds the items on one's list, pays at the register, and heads back home. However, one Florida man's trip to Walmart a few years ago ended up changing his life.
As anyone who has experienced a serious injury knows, they usually occur unexpectedly. When a serious injury does happen, families are probably in shock and unsure how to proceed after the injury. For instance, one young Florida man was in a boating accident as a teenager and lost both of his legs to the boat's propeller in the accident. His mother explains she was shocked when the accident occurred.
