What types of accidents often involve speeding?
Speeding drivers cause a wide range of accidents. That’s because they often don’t have enough time or space to slow down and avoid a collision with another vehicle, pedestrian or bicycle. Some of the most common car accidents involving speeding include:
- Rear-end accidents caused by speeding drivers tailgating and following the vehicle in front too closely.
- Distracted driving accidents caused by texting drivers going too fast who lose control of the vehicle and crash into another car.
- Drunk driving accidents caused by drivers under the influence going too fast who cross the center line or run a red light, causing a serious intersection accident or head-on collision.
- Aggressive drivers going too fast, especially on highways, where such reckless drivers often change lanes without warning or weave in and out of traffic.
Is this how your speeding accident happened? Or are you dealing with a different situation? Whatever the circumstances of your high-speed collision, an experienced attorney can thoroughly investigate your crash and demand the money you deserve for your accident-related expenses.
How do investigators determine if speed was a factor?
State or local police investigating your accident – along with insurance companies and other interested parties – often look for key evidence when determining if speed was a factor in an accident. Such evidence may include:
- The length of the skid marks on the road.
- The absence of skid marks on the road in certain circumstances.
- The severity of the damage to the vehicles involved in the crash.
- Eyewitness testimony, especially if someone saw one driver going too fast.
Insurance companies are especially interested in whether someone was speeding since one driver might be blamed for causing the crash if they were driving very fast. This is important in Colorado and Arizona since the at-fault driver’s insurance company is responsible for compensating injury victims. This is due to each state’s fault-based insurance system.
When your accident is being investigated, it’s important to have someone investigating your crash on your behalf. Your lawyer can do this and search for evidence in support of your case. That way, you can demand the money you rightfully deserve for your accident.
How much is my speeding accident worth?
There’s no set dollar amount when it comes to speeding accident claims. Some might be worth a few thousand dollars. Others might be worth significantly more. What matters is you should be compensated for all your expenses related to your crash. This includes your current expenses, as well as all future anticipated expenses, including money for:
- Medical care and future anticipated medical expenses.
- Vehicle repair or replacement costs.
- Replacement income if you cannot work during your recovery.
- Future income if you cannot return to work due to a severe injury or permanent disability.
Injuries sustained in high speed accidents can often be serious. You shouldn’t have to worry about if you’ll have enough money to pay your bills. That’s why it’s critical that you have an experienced lawyer on your side, fighting for your rights after your accident.
