Car Accidents Caused by a Speeding Driver


December 22, 2022

Speeders pose one of the deadliest risks for motorists because speeding decreases the margin of error that a driver has when encountering a road hazard and increases the impact force when there is a collision. About one-third of all fatal traffic accidents are caused by speeders, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The most typical form of speeding is violating the posted speed limit. However, drivers can also commit a speeding violation when they also drive faster than what is considered reasonably safe given the weather, traffic, and road conditions. For example, a driver who is driving at 70 MPH on the interstate is not speeding when the weather is clear if that is the posted limit. However, if the driver does not reduce their speed on the interstate during a snow storm, that driver could be ticketed for driving at an unsafe speed. 

All drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles in a safe way and must keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front of them to be able to avoid crashing with other motor vehicles. Speeding contributes to severe accidents in several ways, including:

  • Speeding lessens the time they have to make decisions.
  • The collision forces are more severe.
  • The driver's reaction times are shorter.
  • Speeding vehicles have less time to avoid a crash.
  • Speeding vehicles need greater distances to stop.

If a speeder has injured you or a loved one, you may have a legal right to pursue financial compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, and more. The right to pursue monetary compensation by filing a car accident insurance claim is often subject to stringent deadlines, so it's important to speak with our attorneys today.
