Skilled Counsel In California Speeding Accidents
Despite the commonly known fact that speeding is dangerous, speed remains the most common contributor to motor vehicle accidents. Speeding accidents can and do cause serious injuries and fatalities on California roads and highways every day. In fact, according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 2,700 fatalities were linked to speeding in California in one year alone (2011). When you are the victim of a speeding accident, obtaining financial compensation for your injuries is your right.
At Martinez & Schill LLP, we are experienced San Diego car accident attorneys. We work aggressively on behalf of our clients to secure maximum financial compensation for speeding accident injuries.
Speeding Accidents In Southern California
The roads in Southern California are often crowded, but that does not stop drivers from speeding. For many drivers, rushing to their destination is the most important thing. The danger posed by speeding, however, is very real. When a driver is speeding, there is less time to recognize a hazard and respond to that hazard effectively. Additionally, when a vehicle that is speeding collides with another vehicle, the resulting impact is much greater than if the collision occurred at a slower speed.
Speeding is an act of recklessness and is enough to make a driver at fault for an accident. When you have an accident with someone who is speeding, it is important to seek legal help immediately. You do not want to settle with an insurance company right away. They are not interested in assessing the full expense of your injury; they are interested in resolving your case as quickly as possible and for the least possible amount. Our attorneys, on the contrary, will take the time to determine the full cost of your injury, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and any other damages. We will strongly advocate for the greatest possible compensation in your case to the insurance company. If necessary, we are not afraid to take the matter before a judge.
