SPEEDING AND CAR ACCIDENTS

Speeding is one of the leading causes of car accidents throughout the United States. In fact, according to research performed by the American Automobile Association’s Foundation for Traffic Safety, speeding almost triples your odds of causing or being involved in a car accident.

The Importance of Speed Limits

Speed limits are designed to ensure that every vehicle on a given stretch of road is traveling at roughly the same speed. If one vehicle is going much faster than the posted limit, other motorists nearby may end up miscalculating their speed in relation to the other driver, thereby putting everyone on the road at a higher risk of collision.
Speeding drivers also significantly reduce their stopping distance and reaction time, giving them less control over their vehicle. Speed limits are enforced for the safety of pedestrians, bicyclists, and children as much as motorists.

Injuries Caused by Speeding

When a speeding vehicle causes a car accident, victims can suffer serious personal injuries, including:

  • Neck injury (whiplash) – If your neck is flung forward and backward (or side to side) during a sudden impact, you can suffer soft tissue injuries in your neck and back area. Whiplash can also cause brain injury. Symptoms may not be apparent until days after the accident occurred.
  • Spinal cord injury – A severe impact from a speeding car can damage your spinal cord, leading to partial or complete paralysis.
  • Brain injury – Traumatic brain injury is one of the most common consequences of a speeding accident. Brain injury can lead to a wide range of problems, such as memory loss, mood swings, cognitive problems, vision problems, and more.
