Speeding Accident Lawyer in Gainesville
According to the most recent 2008 traffic collision statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), speeding contributes to almost one in three fatal traffic accidents. Unfortunately, the faster a vehicle is traveling, the more lethal it becomes if it collides with another car, bus, truck, trailer, etc.
When a motorist violates a Gainesville traffic law, such as traveling above the speed limit or too fast for current road, weather or traffic conditions, speeding accidents are more likely to occur resulting in serious injuries and wrongful death of innocent drivers. Seeking justice from a speeding accident or car accident caused by reckless driving in Gainesville requires aggressive personal injury lawyers who fight for victims of driver negligence. The speeding accident attorneys at Steven A. Bagen & Associates recognize the dangers that speeding presents to all drivers on the road, not to mention pedestrians and bicycle riders. If you or someone you love was injured in a collision caused by a driver who was speeding, we can help.
Speeding almost always makes a motor vehicle accident worse as it reduces a driver's ability to properly maneuver a vehicle, making a speeding accident more likely, while also increasing the severity of any collision that does occur. Any driver operating a vehicle at an unsafe speed loses the ability to steer properly and must allow an extended distance necessary to stop the vehicle, making emergency stops almost impossible.
