The Dangers of Speeding

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, speeding was a contributing factor in about 30% of the fatal car crashes that occurred in 2004. In that year, about 13,192 people lost their lives to speeding drivers. Many of these fatalities were people under the age of 18.

These tragic statistics underline the importance of obeying legal speed limits. When drivers fail to do so, they are creating a dangerous situation in many ways. Speeding is hazardous because:

  • The faster a car is moving, the greater force it will hit people or objects with.
  • It greatly reduces the amount of time the driver has to see and react to obstacles.
  • It increases the driver’s chances of losing control of the vehicle, especially on turns.

Our Phoenix speeding car accident lawyers can help you determine whether you are eligible for compensation from a speeding driver. Compensation may cover medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and possibly more.
