Speeding Accidents Injury Lawyer
There is a reason that speed limits are applied to city, state and interstate roadways, as speeding is one of the most common causes of injury and fatality vehicle accidents. The higher the speed, the less control a driver has over their vehicle, especially when it comes to stopping. If a driver is speeding and is involved in an injury crash, they are usually partially or completely responsible for the accident and subsequent injuries. Keith D.

Speeding is not uncommon, and it happens every second of every day on roads all across America. Regardless of the frequency, it is still against the law, and drivers that speed are considered to be driving in a reckless manner. If a motorist is driving too fast and cannot stop in time, they are likely to hit a vehicle that suddenly brakes or comes to a stop. They are also more likely to lose control of their vehicle in bad weather or on a slippery road, resulting in serious accidents.
