Dedicated to Achieving the Outcome You Deserve
The average person believes that speeding is normal behavior, unfortunately increasing the risk of a horrific car accident for most motor vehicle operators. When a speeding car is going over the speed limit, this is negligent behavior because the driver is disregarding laws so that they can shorten their commute time. If you were in a speeding car accident, you may be suffering from severe damages that forced you to take time off from work. You might be dealing with medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. When this is the case, you can speak with our law firm to find out how you can obtain a settlement in a timely manner. Call Henningsen Injury Attorneys P.C. now for a free consultation.
When a car is speeding, the driver increases its risk of crashing into other vehicles. Here are some of the main reasons why speeding car accidents are dangerous:
A speeding car driver won’t have enough time to react to other cars when going too fast for their reflexes to respond. The amount of time it takes to respond to other car drivers is greatly shortened, which means that someone driving the normal speed limit can react in time to prevent a crash. A speeding car driver will have milliseconds to react and often miss their chance to avoid a crash.
Cars that are driving faster take longer to slow down before coming to a complete stop. This means that when a driver is going 60 mph, they will need more time and more space to stop. However, someone going 30 mph will need half that time and space. This is why a speeding driver is more likely to crash; they may have enough room to slow down in time.
A car that is speeding is traveling at a much higher velocity, which means that they carry a higher force when hitting another car. Cars that get into accidents that aren’t traveling at a high speed have less force and momentum, which is why these accidents typically end in fewer damages. When a speeding car hits another car, this can impale the car and cause terrible injuries.
Your car accident attorney has many different skills they can use to support your claim and prove that the other party is at fault.
Before you seek a settlement claim, you should know whether you have a strong case or not. If your attorney reviews your case and sees you are fully or partly liable, you can move forward knowing what to expect instead of wasting your time seeking an inaccurate settlement amount.
Your personal injury attorney can initiate an investigation to help you uncover additional information about your claim. They will review the case details, find out more information about how the accident occurred, and look over your medical bills and other expenses. If possible, they’ll analyze any recorded footage from nearby traffic cameras and obtain police reports. They can also use the accident reconstruction method to help them understand how the crash happened.
If the other party was texting and driving, speeding, or doing other illegal activity which contributed to the crash, your attorney can find out. They can file a subpoena to obtain the cellphone usage data from the other party’s phone company. Also, if their car is more modern and has a black box, it may contain information about how fast the car was going before it crashed and when the driver hit the brake. Your attorney can obtain the driving record to see if they have been in previous speeding car accidents. They can also request lab tests if the other driver happens to be under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
Your attorney will calculate how much you are owed in compensation by doing a review of your damages. They calculate this based on the severity of your injuries and use your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and property damages to come up with an estimate.
With your attorney’s help, you can get your speeding car accident settlement sooner rather than later so that you aren’t stuck in an uncomfortable financial situation. Your attorney can help support you through this troublesome time and direct you on your next steps. To get started, speak to a legal representative today.
