Pasadena Car Accident Attorney

Representing Victims of Accidents Caused by Speeding

Carolyn, a car accident client of the firm.

Car accidents remain one of the leading causes of death for American citizens. Speeding, in particular, is involved in approximately one out of three fatal crashes according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and it remains one of the major components in serious automobile collisions. Speeding refers to any type of driving in which the driver exceeds the posted speed limit, or where they drive too fast for weather or road conditions. It can also be defined as racing.

Speeding is a predominant factor in one-third of all motor vehicle collisions. Furthermore, speed is a major component in aggressive driving and is defined by the NHTSA as "committing a combination of moving traffic offenses so as to endanger other persons or property."

If you were injured in a car accident that was caused by excessive speeding or reckless driving, then you should contact a Pasadena car accident attorney for immediate legal assistance. Here is a checklist of the information we’ll ask for during your initial consultation.

Pasadena Car Accident Lawyer

It's a well-known fact that speeding greatly enhances the likelihood of being involved in an automobile accident. As vehicle speed increases, the driver's ability to stop safely becomes increasingly impaired, if not impossible in certain situations. As a result, taking turns too fast, or coming up to a slower vehicle, or encountering an obstacle on the roadway can cause the driver to lose control of their vehicle. When this happens, the drivers and passengers of other automobiles, pedestrians, and people on motorcycles or bicycles can become seriously injured or killed as a result of the driver's negligence or recklessness.

In addition to legislation, law enforcement and state officials have taken a number of measures to address the ramifications of speeding. They have increased public awareness campaigns, they have developed technological advances such as photo radar, and they have provided public information and education programs that focus on the dangers of aggressive driving. Unfortunately, despite efforts to deter speeding and reckless driving, unsafe drivers still get behind the wheel each and every day and harm innocent people in their path.

Legal Support Against Unsafe Drivers

Speeding is not only extremely dangerous, but it puts innocent men, women, and children in harm's way. Everyone has the responsibility to drive in a reasonably safe manner and to practice safety first when driving on public roads and highways. When a driver fails to act responsibly and they injure others as a result, they should be held accountable for their unsafe driving practices.
