Speeding is a Leading Cause of Car Accidents in New York and Long Island

Speeding is a contributing factor in many serious accidents. A driver traveling at an excessively high speed can cause significant, life-altering injuries to other motorists, some of which may even be fatal for those involved. Although we all tend to drive above the posted speed limit at times, when speeds drastically exceed these limits and are accompanied by other reckless maneuvers, a driver should be held accountable for the harm that results.

Dangers and Injuries Related to Speeding Accidents

Speed limits are not just suggestions, but laws enacted to ensure that roadways remain safe for all drivers, as well as pedestrians and bicyclists. Municipalities consider an area’s population, as well as schools, road conditions, and the flow of traffic when establishing a safe speed for motorists to travel. When a driver speeds, there is often no time to stop if traffic slows, which can lead to severe rear-end collisions.

Injuries in speeding accidents can also be more significant than in many crashes since the force of impact is more significant than in crashes involving slower speeds. These injuries may include spinal cord damage, brain trauma, or broken bones.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), speeding is a contributing factor in one-third of all fatal car accidents nationwide. Additionally, teen drivers are the most likely age group to engage in speeding, as well as tailgate other drivers. Combined with inexperience, teenage motorists can cause serious crashes.

Speeding Accident Accountability Through Legal Action

 

People who drive at excessive speeds create dangerous road conditions. When these dangers cause an accident and injuries, those responsible can be held accountable in a personal injury lawsuit. Speeding is a sign of negligence. A driver is negligent when he or she breaches the duty of reasonable care owed to all motorists, causing an injury, and resulting in damages.

When negligence is established, victims may recover compensation for their injuries in the forms of past and future medical costs, loss of income, diminished earning capacity, and pain and suffering in certain circumstances. Showing how fast a driver was traveling may require gathering vital evidence at the scene of an accident, as well as using accident reconstruction specialists and other experts. It is essential to contact an experienced attorney who follows the necessary process of preserving your rights.
