Speeding Accidents Result in More Severe Injuries
In accidents where a vehicle is traveling at high rates of speed, the resulting injuries or property damage will be greater.
Sadly, research from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveals that few drivers believe speeding is, in fact, a highly dangerous behavior, despite the fact that the agency says that risk of death, debilitating injuries and disfigurement doubles for every 10 mph that a vehicle travels above 50 mph.
Causes of Speeding Accidents
Exceeding speed limits can be done consciously or without intent. Drivers can purposely be trying to arrive at their destination sooner, or they could simply not be paying attention to the amount of pressure they are applying to the gas pedal.
Common reasons people speed include:
- Belief that driving too fast is not dangerous
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI)
Regardless of the excuse, driving at speeds too fast for conditions or above posted speed limits is illegal in every state. If you believe that the accident that injured you was the result of a negligent driver, seek legal advice from an attorney.
