43-year-old Tampa man dies in car accident

Although it is advisable for the motorcyclists to wear helmets and proper safety gear, sometimes the impact of the accident is such that even appropriate safety gear fails to render required protection to the motorcyclist.

A recent car accident in the northbound lanes of Interstate 275 near Hillsborough Avenue, Florida, is a prime example of the risk involved in riding a motorcycle. The fatal accident occurred when a Toyota Camry ran into a motorcycle while attempting to merge into an exit lane that the motorcyclist was traveling in. The impact caused the motorcyclist to lose control and collide with the guardrail.

The 43-year-old motorcyclist from Tampa succumbed to his injuries at the scene of the accident. The driver of the Toyota Camry did not sustain any injuries. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the charges are pending against the driver and the accident remains under investigation.

Accidents involving motorcycles often result in fatalities. Even when the victim survives, the injuries are usually severe. Such accidents can cause serious injuries to the upper and lower body parts of the riders. Motorcycle-related injuries range from soft tissue injuries to bone fractures and joint breaks.

Victims of motorcycle vehicle accidents can file personal injury claims against negligent drivers. The damages may include medical expenses, disfigurement and disability costs, rehabilitation costs and lost wages. In the case of a fatality, the family of the deceased may file a wrongful death claim.

Insurance companies often deny paying claims and insist on strict proof of negligence as well as one's damages. For this purpose, the victim should retain all medical bills and photographs of the damage caused, as well as other documentation related to the accident.

Florida's law makes negligent drivers liable for the monetary loss that has been suffered by the victim. Compensation can't bring back a loved one, but it can help family members to manage some of the financial loss that must be handled as a result of the accident.
