Dangers of Speeding

Since it is not uncommon to see drivers significantly exceeding highway speed limits, it should come as little surprise to learn that these drivers also contribute to a significant number of accidents, many of which have severe consequences. Under such circumstances, these drivers may be held financially liable for the injuries and property damages that result from their reckless behavior. If you have been injured by a speeding driver in the Louisville area, it is highly advisable that you retain capable legal representation as early on in the legal process as you possibly can.

How Speeding Affects a Driver

Drivers who speed put both themselves and others at severe risk of an accident, since they will be generally less capable of reacting to changing road and traffic conditions. More specifically, speeding drivers put others at risk, because:

  • Reaction time is reduced;
  • Visibility to other vehicles is reduced;
  • Capability to adequately slow is reduced; and
  • Capability to make turns safely is reduced.

Our Louisville legal team understands just how dangerous this behavior can be and will do everything they possibly can to hold drivers responsible for accidents they cause when speeding.
