Car accidents that are caused by speeding are dangerous for many reasons. People who speed have less time to react to changing traffic conditions. It is also more difficult to maneuver a speeding vehicle, and even a small defect in the road can lead to an accident. Perhaps most importantly, vehicles at high speeds strike other vehicles with greater force than vehicles traveling at low speeds.

We Are Dedicated To Recovering The Compensation You Need
Vehicle accidents caused by speeding may also involve issues such as:
- Poor road conditions
- Aggressive driving
- Drunk driving
- Inability to stop at intersections and traffic lights
- Taking turns and curves too fast
- Head-on, rear-end or T-bone collisions
Because of the greater amount of force in speeding accidents, the injuries are often catastrophic or fatal. You will need considerable compensation for medical bills for injuries such as broken bones, amputations, burns, internal organ damage, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and severe lacerations.
Families who lose loved ones to wrongful death in an accident will also need compensation to cover funeral and burial expenses, and the loss of the victim's future wages, benefits and contributions to the household. In addition, we will seek damages for property damage to your vehicle and pain and suffering.
