Motorcycle Accidents More Common at Night, Especially on Weekends

Motorcyclists may be in the minority in traffic today, but this portion of the driving/riding population continues to grow, with data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration demonstrating that Florida is one of the most dangerous places to ride. While landscapes in other states may pose a threat due to curving roads lacking guardrails or snow, ice, and rocky conditions—even those with landslides or more—Florida’s typically flat streets, highways, and byways pose hazards generally created just by other motorists, and a lot of them!

It isn’t called the Sunshine State without good reason, meaning that Florida’s abundantly good weather all year round leads to more motorcyclists, runners, pedestrians, and bicyclists. There are a multitude of different areas where you can get out and drive, ride, walk, or run, but in most cases, there are still traffic dangers. Statistics show that careless drivers continue to pose a hazard on the roads, and Florida leads in motorcycle fatalities.

In the case of a negligent motorist causing harm to others on the road, individuals choosing any other mode of transportation are much more vulnerable due to the lack of protection when facing the weight of a car or truck weighing more than 4,000 pounds. And whether motorcyclists are in harm’s way due to a drunk, distracted, speeding, or otherwise reckless driver, data shows that more deaths and fatalities occur at night and on weekends. Visibility and illumination issues continue to cause challenges when it comes to accidents, with motorists not ‘seeing’ motorcyclists—but this threat applies to pedestrians and bicyclists too. On the weekends, it makes unfortunate sense that there are more accidents in general as less people are indoors at work all day.

Motorcyclists are urged to drive defensively and wear the appropriate protective gear, but also to stand out with bright colors. This doesn’t just mean avoiding darker clothing, either. Choose a bike that is brightly painted, and a helmet that follows suit so that you stand out in traffic. Reflective stickers can also be added to your helmet, motorcycle jacket, boots, and more. Additional lighting is always recommended too.

Motorcycle Protective Gear: Don’t Expect Jeans to Offer Protection

If you own a motorcycle, chances are you enjoy it for a lot more than just the simple commute. This alternative style of transportation allows for a much greater sense of freedom in travel, and many bikers think they enjoy the world’s natural landscape and fresh air more without the constraints of a car or truck. The flip side of that, of course, is that there is much greater chance for injury or fatality; in fact, Florida is one of the most dangerous places to travel on a motorcycle, leading in fatalities.

And while you may enjoy a sense of freedom, traveling down the highway unprotected is a bad idea. This begins at the top, with your helmet, helping prevent serious physical harm such as traumatic brain injury and more. Wearing the proper clothing is vital too, and while many may expect a hardy pair of denims to play a starring role in motorcycle wear, this type of material is not recommended for true protection. Jeans may seem more than thick enough for normal wear, but this is not the case while riding a motorcycle—and especially if you have the unfortunate luck to hit the pavement.

If you wear jeans daily, the best plan may be to wear motorcycle pants that fit over them, or purchase a type of jeans made specifically for motorcyclists. One-piece suits are also highly recommended, especially if you live in an area with colder weather and want to choose more insulation (or you may opt for leather jacket and pants). Don’t forget a sturdy pair of motorcycle boots, along with gloves and protective eyewear. While considering what to wear, keep in mind too that visibility is a major issue to avoid collisions with cars and trucks. While black leather is common, reflective material is highly recommended. Brightly colored bikes are extremely helpful, and this applies to helmets too. Make sure headlights and tail-lights are in good working order—and like many motorcyclists, you may want additional lighting.

Beware: Bicyclists Love Florida—But Greater Numbers Mean More Accidents

Bicycling is an activity you may have been enjoying as long as you can remember. Most of us start out as kids, doing the initial routine with training wheels, and then graduating to a more mature bike with the inevitable spills, and bumps and bruises along the way. You may prefer biking alone around Florida, taking respite from a busy life, enjoying fresh air on quiet roads and paths that are especially satisfying when the sun is shining (not too warmly!), the birds are singing, and other interesting wildlife make an appearance here and there as you travel on your way. Others still may enjoy bicycling as a family activity, getting all the children outside, and sometimes even including babies being pulled in small ‘trailers.’ Commuting is also becoming more and more popular on bikes and proving to be not only more economical but much faster in some city areas.

Florida is extremely popular for activities like swimming, walking, hiking a multitude of trails, motorcycling, and bicycling. Unfortunately, all this fun can also have its hazards—and bicycling is no exception. The Sunshine State is particularly dangerous for bicyclists, with recent data stating that Florida bicyclist fatalities are startingly higher than that of other states, with California and Texas emerging next in line. Higher numbers for Florida are thought to be due to a larger population of ageing drivers and visitors who may not be familiar with roads. Florida also has a large population overall, meaning statistically more accidents are to be expected—along with the addition of enticingly good weather year-round.

While many bike safety tips may seem like common sense, all too often they are overlooked, with visibility being one of the most important. Remember to wear brightly colored clothing, but it is also helpful to have reflective material anywhere possible – including on your helmet, shoes, and bike. Lights should be in working order too. Protective gear is vital, beginning with the helmet. And although kids may balk, knee and elbow pads certainly come in handy if there is an accident, preventing cuts, contusions, and possible road rash from those commonly vulnerable areas. Ride with traffic, not against it – and know and follow all traffic signs and signals. If you are riding with smaller children, make sure they have a full education on everything a bicyclist needs to know—especially if they are riding to and from school each day.

If you or a loved one have been affected by a bicycle accident injury caused by the negligence of others contact Heintz & Becker today.

Defective Toys Could Land Your Child in the ER

Life can be so complicated for the modern family today as both parents often commute back and forth to work, kids need to get to school, afternoon activities commence throughout the week, and vital errands must be run. It can be extremely satisfying to take just a short break or a weekend respite with the kids, and fun shopping for a new toy or two may be in the plans. While it may be difficult to find exactly the right thing to please small children or to occupy them for any length of time, the last thing you may expect is a product defect that is harmful to your daughter, son, grandchild, or other loved one.

Unfortunately, there are far too many products out on the market that have the potential to be harmful. And while it would seem like toys would be a major priority in terms of product testing, far too many of them cause serious injuries (and in some cases even death) to children each year. You may expect or assume that a toy is safe just because everyone is buying it, and they may have been doing so for years, but manufacturers could be facing allegations of injuries or fatalities and are fighting behind the scenes to prevent necessary recalls that may not happen for a long time.

Choking hazards are one of the main sources of injury or death from toys, and especially if you have small children. This usually becomes more of an issue around the holidays too, whether newer toys or some of the tried and true are being heavily marketed, purchased, and used. While small, unattached pieces should be avoided, it is also important to watch for toys with long strings or attachments that could lead to the potential for wrapping around a child’s neck or cut off circulation to a limb or finger. Toy guns and other play shooting devices may cause hazards, along with riding toys or trampolines.

A serious product defect could find you in the ER with your child being treated for a breathing or choking issue, burns, cuts, and more. Fatalities may be caused due to drowning, asphyxiation, trauma, a serious blow to the head, or more. Contact a skilled product defect attorney as soon as possible if your child or a loved one have been hurt or fatally injured by a defective product. It is imperative that a report or complaint is filed regarding the product, so others are not injured too, and you may be due significant damages after such an incident.

If you or your child have been injured by a defective product, contact the attorneys at Heintz & Becker. We’ve helped victims from Bradenton, Sarasota, and all over Florida get compensation for their damages and medical expenses after accidents.

CRPS: Even the Slightest Touch May Invoke Pain

Complex regional pain syndrome affects a small number of people in comparison to other more widespread conditions, but with 200,000 people (at least) suffering, that still means a lot of patients are living in discomfort. CRPS is not only considered rare, but extremely unique. Often, the patient may have experienced something traumatic like a car accident or motorcycle crash that resulted in an injury paling in comparison to the suffering caused by CRPS.

While a broken or even sprained ankle may cause considerable pain and inconvenience in mobility, it is an injury that usually heals without complication. If you have been stricken with CRPS, you may have been shocked to experience its onset in lieu of a health issue that dissipated. The symptoms can range from moderate to extremely painful and debilitating, whether you suffer from Type 1 (after an injury that occurred with little known nerve damage) or Type 2 (after an incident causing direct, known nerve damage). Epidermal pain is common, to the extent that even a breeze blowing on your arm or leg may be painful. Even the lightest touch or a bit of fabric making contact may cause torture.

Such discomfort is unusual and while you may not understand it, it may be even harder for those closer to you to comprehend your pain—and on top of that, medical professionals may be challenged to give you an initial diagnosis, with no specific testing available aside from ruling out other conditions. Treatments span a variety of different medications and therapies, depending on the severity of CRPS. Typical signs of this condition include not only discomfort at the epidermal level, but also throbbing and swelling in the affected areas, as well as considerable joint stiffness and pain. If you have CRPS, mobility could become such a challenge that you become reluctant to walk or move around, resulting in atrophy of muscles. Other related problems could arise, such as dystonia, causing fingers or toes to become paralyzed in an abnormal and fixed position.

Early diagnosis and treatment are suggested for CRPS, so seek medical help as soon as possible if you are experiencing symptoms. This could be a condition that continues to progress and worsen over time for some and may even result in the need for antidepressants or therapy to help with adapting to such overwhelming physical changes and challenges.

Were you in an accident due to the negligence of others that triggered CRPS? If so, please call Heintz & Becker today to consult with a skilled CRPS lawyer. Our attorneys have helped victims from Bradenton, Sarasota, and all over Florida get compensation for their damages and medical expenses.

Swimming Pool Liability: Are Your Drains Updated?

Swimming is usually enjoyable for the whole family, and in Florida especially as it is an activity that everyone can enjoy year-round in many cases. Adults usually enjoy swimming for the exercise it affords, offering health benefits to the health and lungs, as well as building muscle strength and burning mega-calories. If you are a parent, you probably also love to center family gatherings around the pool area, reveling in how worn out kids are after taking a long dip.

Unfortunately, fun activities centered around water usually involve the danger of drowning too. That can be hard to believe sometimes, watching everyone have such a wonderful time while eating, drinking, and celebrating togetherness in their off time. Like car accidents in Florida though, drowning incidents just continue to rise too! Children are primarily at risk, along with the elderly, making it vital to follow the safety laws. While enclosures such as fences, alarms, and pool coverings all help prevent drowning, if drains are not newer or have not been retrofitted for safety, swimmers could be trapped when hair or even limbs are sucked in. Newer drains lack the dangerous suction mechanism, and are larger and rounder in shape, as well as more secure when it comes to fastening (always be sure screws are intact and that drains are in good working order, without any cracks). Pumps should only be run using the settings as instructions outline, and the shutoff should be easy to access.

Even with all the proper maintenance in place though, little of that matters if proper safety guidelines are not followed. While there are probably many adults in attendance during birthday pool parties and other celebrations, don’t let your guard down just because kids are used to swimming in the pool or ‘have been around the water forever.’ A tragic swimming pool accident could occur in a matter of moments, which is why there should always be supervision.

If children are going to be growing up in an area where they will be exposed to the water routinely, as well as expected to be in the pool or ocean, enroll them in swimming lessons. Not only are lessons a great way to become skilled at swimming, they can be a fun social activity. All the normal challenges in a swimming area should continue to be overcome as well, as parents and other adults must discourage running, pushing, rough-housing, and any types of swimming games that could cause injury or drowning. Everyone of age should also know CPR.

Personal Injury Protection: Who is Covered?

Car insurance: it’s very likely you own a policy for at least one car, and so does almost everyone you know. Insurers abound, and there are numerous options and limits and plans to choose from. Even if you have been buying insurance for your cars for decades though, there may be plenty you don’t understand, or like most of us—you may have always left figuring out what you needed to the insurance agent.

Many different types of insurance may be required or recommended in your lifetime, from health and life or disability, to homeowners, different types of commercial insurance, and even a variety of different policies like those meant for travel or other temporary measures. Automobile insurance is extremely common, but it may also be the most important form of protection you ever purchase.

Liability insurance is always recommended for your vehicle and required in some states (like Florida). And although laws are one thing, if you are financing your car, it may be impossible anyway to make a purchase without verification of both comprehensive and collision coverage. Other protection regarding payments for injuries is extremely important too, and especially when you consider the increase in traffic incidents in Florida due to careless drivers, leaving the unfortunate potential for serious injury or even fatalities wide open.

You may be in a hurry at the time you are purchasing car insurance. Perhaps you are just rolling off the dealer’s lot—or maybe it is just one more thing to check off your ‘to do’ list, but make sure you understand what you are purchasing in terms of medical payments (often referred to as medpay) and personal injury protection (often referred to as PIP). While medical payment coverage pays for the obvious in terms of any treatment necessary, PIP can even cover the injured party for lost wages and other expenses like funeral costs. This part of your insurance kicks in no matter who was at fault and covers you, your children, and other passengers who may be in the car but do not own personal injury protection on their own.

“People riding in your vehicle who carry PIP will receive coverage under their own PIP for their injuries, and certain licensed drivers who drive your vehicle with your permission. PIP also covers your child if he or she suffers an injury while riding on a school bus. PIP coverage protects you while in someone else’s vehicle, as a pedestrian, or bicyclist if you suffer an injury in a crash involving a motor vehicle. The Florida Motor Vehicle No-Fault Law, requires all owner/registrants of a motor vehicle with four wheels or more to carry a minimum of $10,000 of Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and $10,000 of property damage liability (PDL) if you own a motor vehicle in Florida. Florida law requires you to maintain PIP/PDL insurance continuously throughout the licensing and registration period,” states the official Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles website.

It is important to note that while medical payment coverage can be purchased, PIP coverage is not available for motorcycles. If you own a scooter, PIP is usually not available either. While this type of insurance is excluded for the motorcycle, PIP insurance is simply not required for scooters or mopeds in most cases—and if they are over 50 cc (meaning cubic centimeters of engine displacement), they are considered a motorcycle anyway.

Rear End Collisions: Don’t Be the Negligent Party!

Many of us have an unfortunate need for speed throughout the day, and it often begins as soon as that alarm clock rings, propelling us into motion. The problem, however, is when that sense of urgency translates to the highway. This is a common problem for many drivers—and is often the reason behind traffic accidents related to speeding, whether they are simple fender benders or car wrecks or motorcycle crashes resulting in tragic fatalities.

The rear-end collision is a common result of speeding—as well as distracted driving. Although operating a vehicle should be treated as an intensely serious exercise (after all, negligent drivers may hold the lives of other motorists in their hands), that is often not the case, and especially for those who drive a lot. While typical offenses such as drunk and reckless driving are still the causes of many injuries and deaths on the road, distracted driving is now the top reason for accidents. Thousands of deaths occur and hundreds of thousands of people are hurt due to motorists who cannot resist the temptation to pick up the phone, read a text, send a message, or perform other unnecessary activities that involve holding and manipulating electronics. And unfortunately, for the innocent driving along doing exactly what they are supposed to be doing, being ‘run into’ is an all too common occurrence.

In most cases, one motorist will hit another from behind due to a lack of time to hit the brakes. This is usually deemed to be their fault. Although there can be extenuating circumstances such as multi-car pileups or weather issues, the bottom line is that whoever could have prevented the accident is generally at fault. If you or a loved one were injured due to a rear-end collision, you may have experienced any range of injuries from cuts and contusions to whiplash, traumatic brain injury, broken bones, severe spinal injuries, paralysis, and more. Do not try to go it alone against the other motorist’s insurance carrier if this is the case. They may attempt to interview you and tape record conversations, request medical records, speak to witnesses who were on the scene when the accident occurred, and more. It is in your best interest to work with a skilled injury attorney!

FDOT Study Examines Bicycle Crash Patterns

If you have never been injured in a bicycling accident, then it may seem like one of the most enjoyable and healthy forms of exercise one could enjoy. After all, what could go wrong as you innocently take in the fresh air and the natural landscape, working your heart and lungs, and burning calories like crazy? Unfortunately, plenty. And this is not usually the bicyclist’s fault. As usual—and as in the case of motorcyclist accidents and pedestrian injuries—motorists are your greatest threat. Florida is evidence of this danger too, listed as one of the top states for bicyclist fatalities.

The state has been working to solve the problem, with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) performing an analysis on bike crashes last year. As far back as 2014, Florida was leading in bicyclist fatalities, and the numbers continue to be concerning each year. In their report, researchers explore causes and patterns of such accidents, along with pinpointing ‘hot spots,’ and ways to prevent crashes. They also create crash modification factors for evaluating to ‘assess safety effects of common engineering treatments on bicycle safety.’

In their analysis, the researchers examined 26,036 crashes occurring between 2011 and 2014, finding that age and sex figured into fatalities, with elderly bicyclists and men more likely to be involved in fatal accidents. Fatalities also occurred more frequently for bicyclists riding at night, for bicyclists riding against the flow of traffic, and for those under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The analysis also includes many other detailed facts and statistics:

“The majority of bicycle crashes occurred on urban roadways; only 1.2% of all crashes that occurred on state roads occurred in rural areas,” states the report. “In terms of crash severity, 16.9% of all bicycle crashes that occurred on rural facilities resulted in fatalities while only 2.5% of those that occurred on urban facilities resulted in fatalities.”

“The average age of bicyclists killed in crashes with motor vehicles was 43 years, while the average age of bicyclists involved in traffic crashes was 33.8 years. Among the different age groups, bicyclists between 45 and 54 years of age experienced the highest fatality rate of 19.76 fatalities per year per million population, and those in 65- to 74-year age group experienced the highest injury rate of 875.43 injuries per year per million population.”

The researchers point out the four main crash types:

  • The driver of a car turns right as a bicyclist is crossing.
  • Cars turn left facing bicyclists.
  • Bicyclists ride out into intersections.
  • Motorists run stop signs.

They also identified other reasons for accidents, to include lack of illumination at night in towns and cities, disregard for traffic laws, U-turns, bicyclists hitting car doors, complex intersections, and more.

As for measures to be taken in preventing further crashes, the team suggests more specific areas for bikes. Along with bike lanes, they suggest bicycle tracks and bicycle boulevards (‘defined as traffic-calmed side streets signed and improved for bicyclists to provide a safer alternative to riding on arterials’). Wider curb lanes, speed humps, lane reductions, and raised medians are suggested, along with more crosswalks and roadway lights.

Citing that bicycle crashes make up 5.6 traffic fatalities but overall only make up 1.9 percent of total accidents, the researchers point out that many bicycling accidents are severe.

“Drivers were found to be at-fault in 45.7% (1,321 of 2,888 bicycle crashes) of the crashes while bicyclists were at-fault in 30.2% (871 of 2,888 bicycle crashes) of the crashes. Both bicyclists and drivers were found to be at-fault in very few crashes (0.8%, 22 of 2,888 bicycle crashes),” states the report.

Both drivers and bicyclists tended to be at fault when not yielding right-of-way, ignoring traffic rules, and driving carelessly.

What to Do After You’re Injured at a Hotel or Resort

When you’re staying at a hotel or a resort, you should fully enjoy your experience. It may be one of the few times of the year you can decompress and relax without any worries.

But sometimes you have been in an accident during your stay. And if you’re injured on their property, you may not know what to do.

That’s why the injury lawyers at Heintz & Becker have listed a few steps you should do if you find yourself injured from an accident at a hotel or resort.

And if you still have questions, call our law firm at (941) 748-2916.

Hotel and Resort have responsibilities to their visitors

Hotels and resorts are legally required to provide a reasonably safe environment for their guests.

While they aren’t liable for every accident that could happen, if they are aware of a hazardous situation that could cause harm, they must address the issue or inform their guests of the hazard.

If the hotel or resort fails to do either, they may be found negligent and you may be able to file an injury claim for compensation for your injuries.

What you can sue for

If you have been injured at a hotel or resort and you would like to sue, then it is important to know what you can sue for. Hotels and resorts can be held liable if you are injured on their property if they acted negligently.

A slip and fall accident is one of, if not, the most common accidents that could happen at a hotel or resort. But the situation dictates whether the business is liable.

For example, if one guest spills a soda in a common area and someone immediately slipped, fell, and suffered an injury from the soda spill, then the business would not be liable. The business did not know about the spill or have enough time to address the slipping hazard before someone was injured.

But if a room is cleaned and a slipping hazard was not addressed by the cleaning staff, then the hotel would be liable since they knew the hazard was there and did nothing to address it.

Slip and fall injuries aren’t the only thing guests may file an injury suit for. Hotels and resorts must also control any insect infestations on the property. Bed bugs would be one example.

Bed bug bites can cause infections and scars, so it is very important to document the injury and immediately visit a clinic or hospital. After receiving medical help, you can begin the process of filing and reporting your injury

When hotels and resorts are responsible for your injury

Hotels and resorts are responsible for your injury when your injury occurs on the premises. They can be held liable for your injury if they do not warn visitors of prior hazards throughout their property.

Proving that negligence was involved requires more concrete evidence, but establishing that hotels and resorts are responsible for your injury is a great first step.

Who to contact if you are injured at a hotel or resort

It is important to feel safe at any hotel or resort that you visit. If you are injured at a hotel or resort, contact the attorneys at Heintz & Becker.
