A Pinellas Park resident suffered very serious injuries when a car pulled directly into out of a parking lot and directly into the path of the motorcyclist. Montgomery Smith (19-years of age) was heading southbound on Tyrone Boulevard when the driver of a Ford F-250 was exiting the Home Depot parking lot and failed to yield the right-of-way to the motorcycle.
If you have followed our blog, we have sadly harped on the ongoing theme that drivers often fail to see motorcycles for a myriad of reasons, which has led to a number of avoidable tragedies. Unfortunately, automobile operators oftentimes do not operate their vehicles with due caution for other drivers. Further, many drivers are simply guilty of distracted driving due to the proliferation of cell phones and other hand held devices which often capture the attention of drivers and distract them from their main obligation.
As a Clearwater motorcycle accident attorney, I often note that many of my clients were injured as a result of a driver who failed to notice them. Many drivers simply fail to allow the motorcyclist full use of their respective traffic lane and provide the proper following distance to enable a sudden stop or deceleration.
