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.
