The high cost of car accidents involving speeding

Speeding accidents are dangerous for several reasons. The force of impact is greater at higher speeds, resulting in more damage to the vehicle and more serious injuries. Drivers of other vehicles have less time to react to try to avoid a collision. And the driver may have also been engaging in other dangerous behavior, such as recklessly changing lanes.

Injuries from a speeding accident can include broken bones, spinal cord injuries and other injuries to the back, concussion and traumatic brain injury (TBI), neck and shoulder injuries, and damage to internal organs.

Victims often need extensive medical treatment and expenses can add up fast. These include the costs of ambulance service, diagnostic tests, imaging tests, surgery, hospital stays, medication, physical therapy, home medical equipment, home health care, and multiple follow-up visits with doctors. And victims can’t work, resulting in a loss of income.

A speeding accident lawyer can guide you through the legal process

One problem with holding speeding drivers accountable is that they often deny going above the posted speed limits. They may even blame you for causing the accident. This puts you in the position of having to prove their speeding was at fault for what happened.

Another problem is the insurance companies. Their main goal is not to treat you fairly and give you appropriate compensation. Their main goal is to limit your compensation as much as possible. There are various methods they use to accomplish this.

One is to question the seriousness of your injuries. Another is to seek access to your medical history to try to argue your injuries were pre-existing. They may also try to blame you for the accident to reduce the compensation you are owed under New Jersey’s modified comparative negligent rules. Or they may simply offer you a quick settlement that can be tempting as your medical expenses start to add up. The problem is that their offer will be far short of covering all of your damages. It’s just another tactic they use to try to save money.

Attorney Leigh is very familiar with these tactics. He used to represent insurance companies. He knows how adjusters think and how they approach claims. Now he puts that knowledge to work to help car accident victims fight back.
