If you spend a lot of time on the road, you have probably noticed the number of drivers that speed on the freeway, city streets and even in parking lots. Speeding is irresponsible and places everyone on the road at risk of involvement in a serious car accident. If you or someone you love was injured in a car accident, motorcycle accident or truck accident that was caused by a driver who was speeding, it is important to consider your legal right to hold that driver accountable for his or her actions.
The Los Angeles car accident lawyers at The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus can discuss your options in seeking financial damages from the responsible driver's insurance policy or your own insurance coverage as well as any other sources available to you. Regardless of the nature of the collision and severity of injury you may have sustained, you may be able to recover money that will help you with medical bills, repairs to your vehicle, rental car expenses, lost wages from missed work and possibly much more.
Speed limits are posted on our roadways in order to protect the safety of everyone that uses them. Although some people may consider "speeding" to be driving at least 8 to 10 miles per hour faster than the speed limit, exceeding the posted speed limit even by a few miles per hour may prove extremely dangerous in some situations. The same applies if a driver is driving too fast for current traffic, road or weather conditions, regardless of the posted speed. He or she may be at increased risk of causing an accident – and the severity of the collision is likely to be far greater.
