According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics, speeding is determined to be a contributing factor in approximately one-third of all fatal traffic collisions in the U.S. The NHTSA considers a traffic accident to be speeding-related if one of the drivers was charged with a traffic offense related to speeding, or if an officer indicated that speeding, racing or driving too fast for current road, traffic or weather conditions contributed to the collision.

Reliable Legal Counsel You Can Trust

Speeding is a dangerous practice.

  • It reduces a driver's ability to respond to an emergency situation or a change in traffic or road conditions.
  • It increases the time it takes for a vehicle to come to a stop.
  • It also increases the severity of any collision that does occur by increasing the force of impact.

One of the most important things you can do if you were injured in a speeding accident is discuss your legal options and your right to financial compensation with an experienced attorney. Your ability to recover complete financial damages may have a serious impact on your ability to move on with your life and rebuild.
