Of all the causes of auto accidents, speeding is perhaps the most avoidable. Whether the driver is late for work, is inexperienced, such as a teenage driver, or just likes the thrill of driving fast, those who speed make an active choice to break the law and put those around them in danger. And unfortunately, speeding often leads to accidents that result in property damage, serious injuries and sometimes death. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in an accident caused by a speeding driver, call the Capaz Law Firm to speak with a Tampa auto accident lawyer now. We can help you hold the at-fault driver accountable for their actions and seek compensation for your injuries.
Speeding causes thousands of accidents each year, leaving innocent victims with serious, painful and sometimes permanent injuries. And quite often, the results are fatal. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Traffic Safety Facts for 2012, there were more than 10,000 speeding-related traffic fatalities in the U.S. This accounted for almost a third of all traffic fatalities in 2012. In Florida alone, there were 361 deaths caused by speeding.
The speed at which a vehicle travels is directly related to the amount of force it has in an accident, and affects the severity of injuries suffered by those involved in the accident. This is particularly true for pedestrians and cyclists. Those who choose to drive at excessive speeds put others in increased and unnecessary danger in the event of an accident. Speeding drivers who break the law and cause injuries to others through their reckless behavior should be held accountable.
