Bicycle Helmet Giveaway
Even though Florida law requires children to wear bike helmets, Howell & Thornhill continues to see too many children riding bikes without them. At Howell & Thornhill, we want all of the children in our community to wear helmets because we know they prevent serious injuries and save lives.
Howell & Thornhill, in cooperation with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office and the Winter Haven Police Department, gave away hundreds of free bicycle helmets to Winter Haven and Auburndale area children.
Howell & Thornhill presented the Helmet Giveaway as part of its community wide mission to promote child safety and prevent serious injuries. Thanks to the overwhelming response, Howell & Thornhill is planning a second helmet giveaway for the Fall.
Children aged 6-11 who were accompanied by an adult received a free helmet and fitting. All bike helmets are SNELL Certified and meet U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission standards. Each helmet came equipped with an owner’s manual and CPSC labels of certification.
If your child is still in need of a bicycle helmet, then please accompany your child, aged 6-11, to our offices in Winter Haven to pick up a free bicycle helmet while supplies last.
Howell & Thornhill, P.A., is a proud sponsor of the many road races of the Lakeland Runner’s Club and other running races in Polk County. In our job, we see the devastation to everyday activities caused by injuries.
By participating in these road races, our goal is to foster a drive toward better health for Polk County residents.
“I have represented several people hurt where businesses had dangerous conditions that caused serious injuries. Initially, the corporations involved refused to reimburse for the injuries. During the course of each lawsuit, I saw that the company fixed the dangerous condition. I was happy my client was reimbursed. However, I was most satisfied that the claim helped force the business to do the right thing and prevent another serious injury.”
“I represented a woman who was seriously injured in crash to the point that she lost her job and could no longer provide care to her family. After a fight with the insurance company for the careless company driver, I helped her receive money to replace her lost income and to help care for her family. Knowing that I helped her family made me proud to be a lawyer at Howell & Thornhill.”
“My best moment as a lawyer was when I forced an insurance company to reimburse a paralyzed client so he could move from a nursing home to a home of his own, where he could live with family. He was tragically paralyzed through no fault of his own, and he was forced to live in a nursing home as if he was elderly. At the end of the case, he could afford private care in his own home. Most importantly, he had the abilty to be with family and he had some dignity back, despite his horrible injury.”
“I am proud of our advertisements that focus on helping people. We want to tell everyone who we are, but more importantly, we want people to realize that we are all responsible for safety. Texting while driving and children on bikes without helmets are two problems we can solve together.”
