Missouri Car Speeding Accident Attorneys

Based on these statistics, it is no surprise that one-third of all car accidents can be attributed to speeding. In fact, speeding accidents make up about one-third of all fatal traffic accidents according to a 2008 study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Basically, the faster the speed of a vehicle, the greater the risk of an auto accident occurring.

Results of Speeding Accidents
A victim can suffer from a variety of serious injuries in a collision caused by the speeding of a negligent driver. The forces experienced by the human body in a collision increase exponentially as the speed increases. Additionally, the faster a vehicle is traveling in a car accident, the more severe the damages to the vehicle are and the higher likelihood of a serious injury. These life-changing injuries can lead to permanent damage and a great deal of pain and suffering. Some injuries that can happen as a result of a speeding accident are: whiplash, spinal cord injuries, head injuries, brain injuries, and broken bones.
Unfortunately, there are drivers who do not fully understand that there are worse case scenarios than simply paying a fine. These drivers put themselves at a higher risk to be involved in a tragic accident that resulting in serious injury or death. Our lawyers strongly suggest that drivers consider the consequences before making the unfortunate decision of speeding.
