Louisville Speeding Lawyers

If you or a loved one was injured in a car accident involving a speeding driver, contact the experienced and compassionate Louisville area car accident attorneys at Sampson Law Firm. 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, but 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. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries in a car accident involving a speeding driver and you would like to hear about how you may be compensated for your injuries, contact the knowledgeable and caring Louisville speeding accident attorneys at Sampson Law Firm today to schedule a free and confidential consultation.

Why Do I Need a Louisville Car Accident Attorney?

After a car accident, you are likely dealing with immense pain and financial stress. While you’re trying to recover, you shouldn’t add the burden of trying to represent yourself in a lawsuit. The law can be complicated and frustrating. Let an attorney take care of the complicated legal aspects of your case while you focus on recovery. An attorney may be of assistance as they can:

  • Determine what possible legal courses of action you may have against those who harmed you, and evaluate the strength of your claim
  • Identify the parties potentially liable for your harm
  • Gather evidence to strengthen your case, including accident reconstruction
  • Consult with experts to determine the cost of ongoing needed treatment, the costs associated with the accident, and what might be a reasonable amount of money to demand from the at-fault party
  • Speak with the opposing attorneys to ensure that your rights are not violated and that you are pressured into settling for less money than you may be owed

Be sure to consult with an attorney before speaking to insurance representatives from the opposing driver. They will likely try to trick you into making statements that prevent you from collecting the compensation you need and deserve. Contact a lawyer right away and let them handle these negotiations and everything else for you to ensure you find the best possible outcome in your case.

Dangers of Speeding

At Sampson Law Firm, we handle a wide range of personal injury cases, including those representing victims injured in car accidents caused by speeding. Each year in the United States, roughly 37,000 people die, and another approximately 2.35 million are injured or disabled in car accidents. Roughly 30% of fatal accidents in the United States each year are caused by speeding drivers.

Using excessive speeds is illegal because it’s incredibly 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
  • Greater possibility of losing control of the vehicle
  • Decreased effectiveness of vehicle protection equipment
  • Increased severity of crashes and resulting injuries

Victims of speeding accidents may face injuries such as paralysis, head, neck and spine trauma, brain injuries, broken bones, fractures, severe bruising, torn ligaments, and emotional distress. These injuries can mean the need for ongoing medical attention and treatment from specialists, missed time at work, and lost time with friends and family.

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. Drivers who cause accidents and injure others because they were speeding may be legally liable to compensate those they harm for things, such as:

  • Medical bills and the cost of future treatment
  • Lost wages
  • Damaged or destroyed property
  • Pain and suffering

Victims of accidents caused by a speeding driver may be entitled to other forms of compensation, or have other avenues by which to pursue justice. The law around car accidents caused by speeding drivers can be complicated and frustrating. Contacting a Louisville car accident attorney can help ensure your interests are fairly represented.
