Speeding

Many motorists in Pennsylvania have at one time or another exceeded posted speed limits. Drivers frequently do this when they are late for appointments or pressed for time, but many people try to avoid driving too fast for fear of being issued tickets. Some of the other reasons that speeding should be avoided include the inherent dangers of traveling too fast, such as:

  • Increases distance necessary to come to full stop
  • Loss of traction
  • More force involved in any collisions
  • Reduced control
  • Greater likelihood of being involved in an accident

People who are involved in high-speed collisions frequently suffer severe injuries. Bones may be shattered, and catastrophic damage to a person’s brain, skull, or spinal cord can result in an entire lifetime of rehabilitation. Many victims of these accidents are unable to ever work again and may require full-time nursing care for their daily needs.

A driver violates the law when he or she exceeds the speed limit. When a motorist causes an accident by speeding, he or she will be considered negligent. Victims who sustain serious physical injuries or financial damages because of a driver’s negligence can be entitled to monetary damages.

In most cases, the automobile insurance company of the speeding driver will be responsible for providing compensation to the victims. However, insurance adjusters will attempt to find ways to pay less than they have to—or possibly avoid paying anything at all. Oftentimes, they will try to get victims to make recorded statements that can be sued against them later on.
