Car accidents occur for a variety of reasons, but one of the most common factors in severe automobile accidents is speeding. The extent of car crash injuries associated with these types of accidents are exponentially higher than in crashes at lower speeds – the force of an accident at 60 mph is 300 times higher than a collision occurring at 30 mph. This incredible force often results in extensive injuries that leave car accident victims with huge medical and rehabilitation bills. Our job as speeding accident attorneys in Mesa is to fight for the just compensation your pain and suffering deserve.
There are many reasons why speeding drivers get into collisions. Oftentimes, they simply do not have enough time to react due to their high rate of travel. Crowded highways and busy intersections are prime locations for speeding accidents to occur. If an automobile makes a last-minute lane change or slows down unexpectedly, the speeding driver may not have enough time to react and avoid the situation. Excessive speeding reduces a driver’s ability to fully respond to obstacles and make split-second decisions, which can result in life-changing injuries for victims.
The statistics regarding negligent driving due to speeding are quite staggering. In 2013, 17 percent of all car crashes in Arizona were caused by excessive speed. According to the Arizona Department of Transportation (AZDOT), 15 percent of all fatal accidents and 18 percent of all accidents resulting in a personal injury involved speeding as a factor in the crash.

It is important to note that some car accident victims do not experience symptoms of an injury until days or weeks after the collision has occurred.
