Why You Need A Speeding Accident Lawyer
If you have just been in a car accident caused by speeding, you are facing a significant legal situation in addition to your road to recovery. Your priority is to focus on your health and the well-being of your family.
You need a lawyer who understands New Jersey speeding accident laws and who can put together a solid case so you can get all the compensation you need to move forward with your life and put this terrible situation behind you.
Insurance companies deal with accident victims all the time, and they know what to say and do to avoid paying an insurance claim that will negatively impact their bottom line. The defendant’s lawyers will also be ready with a smart defense.
An experienced speeding accident attorney can investigate every aspect of your case, including the accident scene itself, your medical records, the amount of damage to both vehicles, and witness statements.
A skilled speeding accident attorney can file a claim to start negotiations for a settlement with the insurance company. If settlement negotiations fail, they can file a lawsuit in court against a driver who was at fault for your accident. You shouldn’t speak with any insurance company representatives or the at-fault driver’s lawyer without first talking to your attorney.

Speeding is a Major Cause of Car Accidents
According to the Bureau of Transportation statistics, speeding is the most commonly cited driver-related factor in fatal highway crashes. At higher speeds, it is much harder to maintain control of a vehicle, stopping distance is increased, and the vehicles and victims experience greater impacts, which can make injuries more severe.
Often when drivers are in a hurry, they will become more aggressive on the road and will practice unsafe behaviors like speeding and tailgating. These practices can become a habit since drivers don’t always realize they are exceeding the limit.
A recent survey found that 24 percent of drivers pulled over for speeding were unaware they were going so fast. Tailgating can be a particular problem since a driver following another vehicle at high speeds will not have time to stop if the vehicle ahead slows or stops.
Injuries in Speeding Accidents
Injuries sustained in a car accident could be more severe if one or both vehicles were exceeding the speed limit. The impacts of a high-speed car accident are much greater than those in other accidents, so the damage to those inside the vehicles is more traumatic.
A study presented at the University of California at Berkeley found that for every one percent increase in speed, the chance of an accident increases by two percent, the possibility of a serious accident by three percent, and the prospect of fatality by four percent.
Some of the injuries that are unfortunately common in speeding accidents include:
- Traumatic head and brain injuries, which may lead to permanent brain damage
- Spinal cord damage, possibly leading to paralysis
- Neck and back injuries, including whiplash
- Lacerations, or deep flesh wounds
- Bone fractures and breaks
An accident victim could experience one or a combination of these and other injuries because such powerful crashes that occur due to speeding can have multiple impact points.
What Can I Be Compensated for in a Speeding Accident?
Every case is different, but there are a few key areas that a compensation claim can cover to help you get through this challenging time, including:
- Medical bills and long-term medical care
- Lost wages due to work missed during recovery
- Pain and suffering
- Psychological damage from traumatic events
- Property damage to your vehicle, to items within, or on your person
- Loss of consortium from a relationship with a spouse or with children
- Wrongful death
- Burial expenses of a deceased loved one
- Loss of household income from a deceased family member
Our experienced legal team can research every possible avenue of compensation relevant to your speeding accident case.
