Speeding Accident Lawyer
An attorney with legal knowledge and experience
Drivers don’t have to be distracted or impaired to put others at risk. A sharp-minded motorist who drives too fast dramatically increases his or her chances of causing a car accident almost as much as drunk driving, distracted driving or tired driving. Speed limits are posted throughout New Mexico for one reason – safety. Car accidents caused by speeding happen far too often. And due to the high impact, the damage can be catastrophic. Crash victims often suffer severe, life-threatening injuries that could take months or years to recover from. Fatal speeding accidents are also common.
In the event of a crash caused by speeding, you need the legal advocacy of an experienced and knowledgeable New Mexico speeding accident attorney who can help weigh your options. Albuquerque attorney Andras Szantho has helped hundreds of injured motorists in New Mexico’s largest city as well as Santa Fe and other surrounding areas. Contact the Szantho Law Firm and find out how we can help you.
How does speeding cause car accidents?
Speeding is one of the main causes of car accidents. Despite clearly marked speed limits, many drivers in Albuquerque and throughout New Mexico drive too fast on our roads. They can also be seen speeding through red lights, leading to intersection accidents. Speeding drivers are responsible for causing crashes that leave people hurt.
When a car is traveling at an unsafe speed, it is more difficult to control. It also takes a greater distance to bring the car to a complete stop. As a result, these negligent drivers are unable to react in time to prevent a collision.
But drivers often deny they were speeding after an accident. Our firm knows how to prove someone was speeding. Our legal team gathers evidence, carefully reviews accident reports and medical records, and interviews witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts. We build strong cases insurance companies can’t ignore.
High impact of speeding accidents
Speeding accidents can happen on busy highways, congested streets and windy backroads. No matter how skilled a driver may be, he or she may not be prepared to avoid a car accident when it’s time to slow down or stop. This type of negligence puts other motorists in danger. Excessive speeding can often result in devastating rear-end accidents, head-on collisions and T-bone accidents.
Injuries sustained in car accidents caused by speeding often include:
- Spinal injuries
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Cuts, bruises and contusions
- Severed limbs
Compensation you deserve
Motorists who drive over the speed limit not only break the law, they put other’s in danger. If their negligence caused your car accident, don’t count on their insurance company to compensate you for the weeks, months or years spent recovering. They may offer you a meager settlement in the hopes that your claim will disappear. But if you’re unable to work and collect a paycheck, your medical bills and other expenses can quickly pile up – and a small settlement just won’t cut it.
Insurance companies have lawyers protecting their best interests. You need an experienced speeding accident lawyer who can help you fight back to recover the compensation you deserve.
Attorney Szantho has the knowledge and competitive spirit you need to take on the insurance companies. He can negotiate for a higher settlement. If the insurance companies refuse to pay, he’s prepared to take them to court. Your case is about more than just money. It’s about holding negligent drivers accountable for their actions and holding insurance companies to a higher standard.
