Speeding Car Accidents

Speeding Car Accidents

Whether rushing to get to work, a party, or picking up the kids from school, at one time or another we have all gone over the speed limit. Unfortunately, speeding can be very dangerous, even if it is a common practice. Speed limits are set for a reason, and the reason is not just to be able to ticket you.

The Results of Speeding

Traveling too fast can cause a multitude of problems. It is easier to lose control of a car that you are driving when you are speeding. The faster you are traveling, the longer it will take you to stop.

Newton’s Second Law of Motion applies to acceleration. Acceleration occurs when the force acting upon an object becomes unbalanced. Acceleration depends on the net force that is applied to an object. If you apply a higher net force to an object, such as a car, it will go faster.

A higher net force will cause greater damage to the vehicles involved in an accident, and the injuries to the people involved will be much more severe. 

The speed limit is determined by a state legislature. The speed limits in New Jersey are 55 to 65 miles an hour on the highway, 25 miles an hour in school zones, and 35 to 50 on city streets.

Speeding Facts and Figures

  • At least one driver is speeding in 17% of fatal crashes on US highways. Speeding is also considered to be the main factor in 25% of those fatal crashes. 
  • The majority of accidents happen at a speed of 40 miles an hour or greater.

Reasons for Speeding

People will speed for a number of different reasons. They may be in a hurry to get somewhere, or they may just speed in an attempt to keep up with traffic. 

A person may speed because of a blatant disregard for the law or because they are feeling angry or upset. No one knows who you are when you are driving down the highway, and this can cause people to act in a way that they normally would not. They may be more inclined to break the law when they have a feeling of anonymity.

Injuries from Speeding Related Accidents

Rear-end accidents are one of the most common accidents on the road, and if you are traveling at a high rate of speed, the impact will be worse.

A rear-end accident can cause spinal trauma and concussion. It can cause broken ribs, and skin lacerations from broken glass. A driver will have their hands on the steering wheel when they have an accident, and that can cause a broken wrist or a dislocated shoulder.

If you have been injured in an accident that involves speeding, you have certainly had to deal with intense pain, multiple medical treatments, and hours lost from work. In the state of New Jersey, a driver’s own insurance company is supposed to pay for their accident-related bills no matter who caused the accident.

Insurance companies are rarely willing to pay what an accident is really worth. Our car accident attorneys can negotiate with an insurance adjuster on your behalf and will fight to get you the compensation you need.

There are some limited cases in which you can file a claim against a negligent driver who has injured you. If you have been permanently injured, disabled, or disfigured by a speeding driver, we will work hard to recover damages for pain and suffering.
