Lake County car accident lawyer

Every year, thousands of Americans suffer serious injuries in motor vehicle collisions. In many instances, these accidents are caused by the careless actions of a driver. Reckless driving can range from drinking and driving to failing to signal when turning or following other vehicles too closely. One of the most deadly forms of reckless driving is speeding. Despite the risk of traffic tickets and potential loss of driving privileges, drivers regularly choose to drive at speeds above the legal speed limit. If you or a loved one is injured in a car accident caused by a speeding driver, you may be entitled to significant injury compensation.

The Consequences of Speeding

In the United States, speeding is a primary factor in more than 25 percent of all fatal motor vehicle collisions. In 2017, according to statistics compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a total of 9,717 Americans were killed in collisions caused by speeding drivers. In today’s busy world, people tend to speed because they are in a hurry to get from place to place.
