Speeding Accident Injuries Lawyer

Speed is one of the top contributors to vehicle accidents and fatalities. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), speed was a factor in over 10,000 crash deaths each year from 2003 through 2012, and the fatalities were still above 10,000 in 2016. Speeding is a form of driver negligence that puts others on roadways and walkways at higher risk. If you have lost a loved one or were injured in a vehicle speeding accident, the other driver may be liable for damages.

There are good reasons for speed limits, especially in congested areas. The higher the speed, the more likely an accident could occur. Stopping or braking distance is one factor. For every 10 MPH, the stopping distance increases by approximately 30-40 feet, even more at higher speeds. Average stopping distance driving at 30 MPH is 75 feet, but it jumps to 118 feet at 40 MPH and 175 feet at 50 MPH. Plus, the vehicle is more difficult to control at higher speeds, resulting in tailspins and other driving issues.

Serious Injury and Fatality Accidents Caused by Speeding

According to the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, hundreds of people die each year due to speeding-related accidents. The estimate for 2017 was 384 fatalities, and there were many more injuries in Georgia alone. Speed contributes to almost 20% of all traffic fatalities in Georgia. This is lower than the national average but still too high for a factor that can be easily controlled.

When another driver chooses to disobey speed limits, it is negligent and careless behavior. When this behavior results in a traffic injury accident, they may be liable for any injuries they cause. It is important to know your rights if you are a victim of a speeding accident. You may be eligible for significant compensation for your injuries and loss. Contact the office of Dwayne L.

    Rafiq A.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.
