How speeding causes car accidents, catastrophic injuries, and fatalities

Driving at high speeds makes accidents more likely. That's why speed limits exist - to keep motorists safe on the road. When drivers travel at high speeds, they have less time to react to changing circumstances on the road and may need to swerve or slam on the brakes to avoid obstacles. Moreover, a speeding vehicle is more difficult to control and takes more time and distance to slow or stop.

Speeding drivers on highways with a large volume of traffic can cause deadly multi-vehicle crashes, but speed can play a role even on rural roads and side streets in suburban areas. In poor conditions such as rain or fog, speeding is even more dangerous.

In Georgia, drivers are legally responsible for being in control of their vehicles. It is illegal to operate a motor vehicle at an unsafe speed for roadway conditions. That means driving under the posted limit could still be speeding in bad conditions.

At Gary Martin Hays & Associates, P.C., our Georgia speeding accident lawyers stop at nothing to hold negligent drivers accountable for the pain and damage they cause. Speeding is a choice. If you were injured or a loved one was killed by another driver’s reckless decision to speed, contact us for a free case consultation.

You have legal rights. We'll help protect them.

When drivers speed, they not only increase the risk of an accident but also increase the danger of a catastrophic injury or fatality. In accidents caused by speeding, the force involved increases exponentially. While even low-speed collisions can cause serious injuries, the more force involved, the more likely it is that someone will be seriously injured or killed.

Whether or not speeding was the main cause of your accident, as an injured crash victim, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other expenses. If the driver who hit you was acting especially recklessly - for instance, by driving at an unreasonably high speed or weaving in and out of traffic - an experienced speeding accident attorney may even be able to pursue punitive damages, which are designed to punish the driver and send a strong message to the community.

Remember that personal injury claims arising from high-speed accidents move fast. Evidence disappears. Witnesses' memories fade. That's why you need a Georgia car accident attorney with experience handling speeding accidents on your side as soon as possible. Contact us today. Call 1-800-898-HAYS.
