Drivers who fail to give themselves enough time to reach their destinations may overcompensate by driving at a speed that is unreasonable and dangerous. Florida has posted speed limits to prevent serious and deadly car accidents from happening. No matter how skilled or attentive a speeding driver may be, one careless mistake or misjudgment can result in another road user being seriously or fatally injured.

The danger is all around us
Speeding is habitual for some Florida drivers. Some of them may have never experienced the consequences of speeding such as being pulled over by law enforcement or causing an accident. Some speeders may be distracted or impaired and otherwise unaware of how fast they are driving.
However, their negligence often puts responsible road users at risk. Accidents caused by speeding can often result in serious and life-threatening injuries that can take months, even years, to recover from. Those injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Cuts, bruises, and contusions
- Organ damage
If you were hurt by a speeding driver, you deserve financial compensation. A speeding accident lawyer at our firm can help.
Your claim after an accident caused by speeding
How does speeding cause accidents? Going too fast for road conditions makes it difficult to stop a vehicle in time to prevent a collision. It’s the reason why there are posted speed limits that have been determined to be safe.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a crash caused by a speeding driver, it’s important that you take immediate steps to build a solid claim. If you’re able to do so, gather evidence by taking pictures of the crash scene and speaking to witnesses. Your next course of action should be to seek immediate medical attention. Even if you seem fine after an accident, an injury can take days to manifest. That’s why it is crucial to undergo an immediate medical evaluation.
Failing to take immediate action after a crash can give the other driver’s insurance company leverage over your claim. They might try to pin the blame on you or say that you waited too long to seek medical attention.
