Car Accidents Caused by Speeding

File a Car Accident Claim with a Harrisburg Car Accident Attorney at Metzger Wickersham

Speeding is the sole contributing factor of 30% of all deadly car crashes in any given year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. There is a good reason why it is illegal to exceed posted speed limits – excessive speed increases the chance of a driver losing control of his or her vehicle, increases the stopping distance needed to safely brake, makes it more difficult to execute lane changes and other maneuvers safely, and increases the impact of collisions. Speeding puts everyone on the road at risk, including other automobile drivers, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians.

Speeding-related car accidents may involve the following elements:

  • Drag racing
  • Unskilled, aggressive, or impatient drivers
  • Impairment by drugs or alcohol
  • Falling asleep at the wheel

Drivers who speed cause accidents and should be held accountable for their recklessness and the injuries or fatalities they cause. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident caused by a speeding driver, you have rights. Please contact Metzger Wickersham to request a complimentary, risk-free consultation to discuss your rights and the personal injury claims process.
