Do I Need a Speeding Accident Attorney?
Speeding accidents can be serious and costly. When someone travels at high speed and collides with another vehicle, the crash can cause serious stress to your mind, body, and finances.
If you have been involved in this kind of accident because of someone else’s recklessness, you should not have to pay the bill. To recover full compensation for the damages you have suffered, it’s critical to hire an experienced speeding accident attorney.
You may expect your insurance to step up and help cover your costs. Unfortunately, securing fair compensation through an insurance claim is often easier said than done. Insurance companies save money by offering low settlements that don’t fully cover medical bills and other costs. Without a lawyer on your side, your insurance provider is unlikely to offer you the compensation that your policy merits.
When it comes to costs that your policy won’t cover, the speeding driver should be held responsible. A skilled car accident attorney can collect the necessary evidence to prove the other driver’s negligence and go head-to-head with powerful insurance companies. Through knowledgeable and aggressive negotiation, an attorney will maximize your chances of earning full compensation for your accident.

Types of Speeding Accident Cases We Handle
Reckless speeding can play a role in a wide range of car accidents. While these accidents all have speeding in common, your attorney will approach your case with nuance and understanding.
Here are some of the most common types of speeding accident cases that we handle for our clients:
- Speeding accidents involving drugs or alcohol — The use of drugs and alcohol can lower a driver’s inhibition and interfere with their judgement and reflexes. In many instances, this can lead to dangerous speeding, whether the speeding is intentional or unintentional. A driver who is speeding while under the influence of drugs or alcohol can be held liable for the accident.
- Rear-end speeding accidents — Rear-end accidents are very common, and many of them involve reckless speeding on the part of the driver who crashes into you. Often, speeding drivers will creep dangerously close to other cars. In the event of a sudden obstruction or slow-down on the highway, someone tailgating you lacks sufficient time to stop. When speeding causes a rear-end accident, the negligent driver should be held responsible.
- Multi-vehicle accidents — Many speeding accidents involve more than two vehicles. When two cars collide, they can suddenly stop or lose control and spin into traffic, causing further collisions. When a speeding driver causes these extensive accidents, that driver may be liable for any resulting damages.
- Side-impact accidents — Speeding drivers are more susceptible than other drivers to side-impact accidents. As a speeding driver weaves between lanes, they may try to squeeze through small openings in traffic or fail to check their blind spots. This kind of behavior can cause a side-impact collision that the other driver is powerless to stop.
- Rollover speeding accidents — Drastic speeding collisions may even result in a rollover accident. These accidents may occur when a speeding driver hits another car with such force that the car rolls over. Rollover accidents often necessitate costly vehicle repair and medical attention, for which the speeding driver may be held responsible.
What Are the Most Common Injuries Caused by Speeding Accidents?
Speeding accidents can inflict serious injuries that require immediate or long-term treatment. If you or someone you love has been involved in a speeding accident, it is important to seek prompt medical attention. Some of the most common injuries that can result from speeding accidents include:
- Spinal cord injuries or other injuries to the neck and back
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Scrapes, cuts, and bruises
- Internal bleeding
- Organ damage or organ failure
- Broken bones
- Herniated disc
- Psychological damage
Seeking Full Compensation for Your Speeding Accident
Depending on the details of your accident, you may be eligible for various forms of compensation. We will fight to earn full compensation from insurance providers and the at-fault driver for all damage you have incurred.
Below, we have described some of the main forms of compensation:
- Medical expenses — You may receive compensation for any medical bills that have accumulated as a result of your accident. These expenses include the cost of short- or long-term hospitalization, ambulance rides, ER visits, surgeries or other medical procedures, and more. They can also extend into the future by covering rehabilitation costs or the cost of new medical equipment.
- Property damage — You may be compensated for the damage that has been inflicted on your car or other personal property. This compensation may cover the cost of repairing or replacing your damaged vehicle.
- Lost wages — If your accident has forced you to miss work, then you may be entitled to compensation for the wages you have lost. This can include coverage for paid time-off or sick days that you used because of your accident.
- Loss of earning capacity — Some car accidents result in long-term injuries that limit a person’s working ability. If you are unable to perform certain job duties and subsequently lose possible future wages due to your accident, you may receive compensation for these earnings.
- Pain and suffering — Beyond the quantifiable costs listed above, car accidents can inflict lasting suffering that harms your quality of life. For this reason, you may be eligible for pain and suffering damages. This type of compensation is meant to address the immeasurable mental, physical, and emotional anguish you might experience, and is calculated subjectively based on your case.
- Funeral and burial expenses — If the worst-case imaginable occurs and you lose a loved one in a speeding accident, you should not have to take on extra costs to properly mourn this person. You may receive compensation for any funeral and burial expenses that result from the accident.
