Louisville Speeding Lawyers

Speeding is one of the most common traffic infractions committed in the U.S., largely because of the “everyone does it” and “it’s not a big deal” mentalities. Unfortunately, speeding is actually a very dangerous driving behavior that can result in a severe accident at any time. Furthermore, not only can speeding cause an auto accident, it can also cause the repercussions of the accident to be more severe than they might otherwise have been.

Sadly, as the attorneys at the Sampson Law Firm are aware, many Louisville drivers have suffered at the hands of a reckless driver who was speeding, and are now facing devastating injuries and costs. Though dealing with the consequences of a car accident can be difficult, many victims are able to get financial compensation from the driver who caused the accident, making recovery somewhat easier.

Dangers of Speeding

Using excessive speeds is illegal for a reason; it’s quite dangerous. Not only is it dangerous for the speeding driver, but also for other drivers on roadways. While many people overlook the dangers of speeding, they are very real and include the following:

  • Decreased reaction time
  • Lower visibility
  • Increased chances of rear-end accidents
  • Decrease ability to stop suddenly
  • Decreased ability to make turns safely

All of these dangers make speeding one of the most hazardous reckless driving behaviors someone can commit, and yet still, so many drivers speed. But if an unsafe driver has put you in harm’s way, you may be able to take legal action.
