Speeding Accidents

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 an 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 attorney who can help weigh your options. Albuquerque auto accident 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 Szantho Law Firm and find out how we can help you.

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 an 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 accidents caused by speeding often include:

  • Spinal injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Cuts, bruises and contusions
  • Severed limbs
  • Paralysis
  • Death

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 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.

Attorney Szantho has the knowledge and competitive spirit you need to take on the insurance companies. He can negotiate for a higher settlement. And 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.
