Man critically injured after accident in near Tampa

A large number of people become the victims of road accidents in and around Tampa every year. These accidents cause injuries that can range from minor to life threatening. Accidents on highways prove to be more fatal due to the high speed of vehicles. A little mistake on these roads often results in catastrophic auto accidents that seriously endanger people's lives.

In a recent incident near Tampa, a man is fighting for his life after a pickup truck struck him while he was crossing the road. According to the police, the 74-year-old man was on a crosswalk at an intersection when he was stuck by the truck. The driver did not stop at the scene of the accident but police tracked him down and arrested him soon thereafter. Reports say that victim suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

This sort of pedestrian-vehicle crash often occurs due to negligence on the part of the vehicle driver.

Laws in Florida and the rest of the country require drivers to follow traffic signals, observe warning signs and drive within the speed limit. Drivers need to pay attention to traffic rules. Negligent drivers do not pay attention to these rules and often put the lives of others at risk.

Thankfully, the victims of auto accidents have the right to recover damages from negligent drivers. They can sue the drivers for personal injury. The drivers at fault are liable to compensate victims or their families for medical expenses, lost income and permanent or temporary physical injury. In addition, the victims, or their dependents, can claim compensation for mental anguish, pain and suffering.
