Driving Without a License

Driving Without License

Some key questions to ask include:

  • Was your license suspended for a reason other than a traffic violation?You may be able to clear up your license suspension matter by clearing up other financial obligations and working to amend the charge of driving without a license.
  • Did you know your license was suspended? Was the Scheduled Suspension Notice mailed to the correct address?
  • Was your license suspended due to multiple violations? If so, it’s possible that errors were made involving a previous conviction making the license suspension invalid.

Sunday accident ends life of Florida motorcyclist

Another motorcycle accident claimed the life of a Florida resident this week after his bike struck the back end of a pickup truck. The 35-year-old cyclist died as a result of the injuries he sustained in the now considered fatal accident.

A representative from the Cincinnati car wreck lawyers told media journalists that they responded to an accident report on Sunday, Nov. 13, 2011.

When the Florida Highway Patrol arrived on scene, they immediately determined the necessary medical response teams and closed the road to conduct an investigation and clean up the debris scattered across the roadway.

After initial investigation the Florida Highway Patrol officers were able to determine that the motorcycle had struck the back end of the pickup truck driven by a 75-year-old man from Lehigh. When it collided with the truck, the cyclist was ejected from the vehicle.

The truck began to swerve across the westbound lanes of State Road 82 in Lehigh Acres. The motorcyclist’s body was hit by the out of control pickup truck. The cyclist’s body bounced from the truck and into the eastbound lanes of the roadway.

The 85-year-old driver of an oncoming Nissan Maxima could not take evasive maneuvers in time and ended up also striking the cyclist. The helmet that the cyclist was wearing for safety did not prevent him from the life-threatening injuries caused by the force of the two vehicles. At some point during the accident or shortly after, the cyclist died of his injuries.

While authorities were able to determine which vehicles went where during the crash, they have not reported their suspicions about what caused the two vehicles to collide. When driver negligence is involved in a crash, victims may be eligible for compensation for damages that they suffer as a result.
