In the U.S., excessive speed is a contributing factor in about one of every three motor vehicle accidents that causes a death. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that more than 10,500 lives are lost yearly because of speeding. The fact is, speeding is second only to alcohol when it comes to factors that contribute to fatal accidents. If you or someone you know has been hurt because a careless driver ignored the dangers of speeding, you may be entitled to seek compensation for the harm that driver caused you.

When the force of a crash increases, so does the likelihood that people involved in that collision will be seriously hurt or lose their lives.
