Traffic Tickets Are Not The Only Potential Problem With Speeding

Many drivers have been involved in a motor vehicle accident at some point. Regardless of how careful you are behind the wheel, another driver's negligence could result in catastrophic injuries or even death. Causes of accidents often vary from decreased visibility to vehicle defects. However, when exceeding the speed limit factors into a traffic incident, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries.

If you are hurt on the road, The Law Offices Of James L. O'Rourke can help you recover damages. Once our attorneys determine the driver who harmed you exceeded the speed limit, we can help you hold them accountable. Our experienced personal injury lawyers will provide the counsel you need to seek maximum compensation in your claim.

How Might Speeding Affect Compensation?

Speeding increases safety risks for motorists in cars, motorcyclists and commercial trucks, as well as pedestrians. While traffic congestion, road construction or a late start for work may make speeding seem worthwhile, our firm does not accept excuses for car crashes.

Reckless speeds can make an already dangerous situation worse because:

  • Increased momentum amplifies force
  • It is harder to control a vehicle
  • Protective equipment loses effectiveness
  • Injuries may become more severe
  • It takes longer to stop

Safety should be a motorist's main concern. Our team of legal professionals will fight for your best interests when someone causes you pain and suffering by taking advantage of their Connecticut driving privileges.
