There are a lot of dangerous driving practices out there, but excess speed consistently plays a leading role in deadly traffic accidents. When motorists drive faster than is safe, they have less control over their vehicles, and they make seriously dangerous car accidents far more likely. If a speeding driver leaves you injured in a car accident, 388CEDA offers comprehensive medical treatment and care that includes modern pain management techniques. Upon your request, we can also recommend an experienced car accident attorney who may be able to help you resolve your car accident claim favorably.

Safe Speeds Are About More than the Speed Limit Alone

Speed limits are set to help keep our roadways safer, but it’s important to recognize that they are intended for ideal driving conditions. Motorists are responsible for adjusting their driving speeds according to the actual conditions on the road, which includes accounting for all of the following:

  • Poorly maintained roads
  • The negative effects of bad weather, including low visibility and slick driving surfaces
  • Debris-strewn roads
  • Highly trafficked roads
  • Road construction
  • Accidents on the road

Motorists who speed forward without taking outside factors into consideration, jeopardize the safety of everyone who travels on our roads.

Speed Kills

Speed plays far too significant a role in far too many traffic accidents, and the National Safety Council’s Injury Facts shares the following grim statistics:

  • In 2019, excess speed was instrumental in 26 percent of all fatal traffic accidents.
  • That same year, nearly 9,500 people died as a result of excess speed.
  • The total number of speed-related traffic fatalities in 2019 was 8,544.

Further the effects of speeding are three-fold, including:

  • Excess speed reduces the amount of time motorists have to safely react to dangerous driving situations.
  • Excess speed increases motorists’ stopping distances.
  • Excess speed reduces the effectiveness of safety structures on the road, such as median dividers, guardrails, concrete barriers, and more.

Your Car Accident Claim

If you’ve been injured by a speeding motorist, you’ve likely suffered significant damages that you will address by filing a car accident claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. The insurance company, however, is driven by profits, which means that its first priority is decidedly not fully covering your damages from the outset. Instead, the insurance company is motivated to protect its profits by keeping settlements as low as possible. In other words, obtaining the compensation to which you may be entitled can be a difficult endeavor. Be on the lookout for insurance company antics that are designed to decrease your settlement, including:

  • Prolonging the claims process to the point that you are ready to give up
  • Offering a lowball settlement offer before the extent of your damages is clear to you
  • Making the claims process overly complicated
  • Pointing the blame toward you and away from their client (the at-fault, speeding driver)
  • Denying the extent of your damages

A dedicated car accident attorney may be able to help you successfully negotiate a settlement that covers your full range of losses.

Your Injuries

The injuries you suffer in an accident caused by a speeding driver can be extremely serious.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can be life altering. Because they affect the brain, they can alter your sense of self and lead to consequences that are extremely difficult to overcome. Examples include severe mood swings, emotional lability, irritability, increased anxiety, bouts of depression, and other PTSD-like symptoms.

Broken Bones

A broken bone can seriously disrupt your life. Not only are these injuries immensely painful and slow to heal, but they can also lead to chronic pain and even to permanent disability when they fail to heal properly.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are closely associated with a decrease in range of motion and chronic pain. Spinal cord injuries can happen anywhere on the spinal cord and are usually caused by a blow to the neck, shoulders, or back. If the blow is serious and the spinal cord is severed, it translates to paralysis.
