Largo Wrongful Death Attorney Discusses The Importance of Safety Belts

Michael Graziano, the brother of a Clearwater man injured for life in
a 2007 crash involving the son of Hulk Hogan, died on Friday, April 13,
2012, from injuries sustained in an early morning car wreck that took
place in Largo on April 3.  Michael Graziano sustained critical injuries
when he was the passenger in a Volvo operated by Cameron Bosley that
crashed into the back of a dump truck at 3 A.M., at Ulmerton Road and 66th
Street in Largo, Florida.  Sadly, neither Mr. Graziano nor Mr. Bosley
was wearing seat belts.  A seat belt may have precluded both men from
suffering critical injuries and potentially saved the life of Michael
Graziano whose tragic death has wrecked a family already reeling from
the tragic accident in 2007 that left his brother John with permanent
life altering injuries.

Although no charges have been filed as of date, Florida Highway
Patrol
is awaiting results from a toxicology study as well as an ongoing
investigation before making a final determination.  However, FHP has
stated that it is believed that Mr. Bosley was operating the vehicle at
an excessive speed prior to slamming into the rear of the dump truck. 
There has been no determination whether Mr. Bosley was racing at the
time of this tragic Largo accident.

This is yet another example in the long list of tragedies involving
drivers and passengers who fail to heed the very important warning
regarding the necessity of wearing a safety belt.  Whether it is texting
and driving or failing to utilize a safety belt; I continue to lose
patience with the shockingly large portion of Florida drivers and
passengers who willingly take unnecessary risks without comprehending
just how precious life is.

As a Largo injury attorney, I devote much of my time and our blog to
educating Pinellas County residents on the importance of utilizing
safety belts and avoiding distractions such as cellphones and other
electronic devices while operating an automobile or motorcycle.  All it
takes is a second for your life to change forever.
