Are speeding car accidents a problem in Texas?
If speeding crashes seem bad in Texas, it’s not just your imagination. Speeding drivers cause more car accidents in Texas than in any other state, according to accident statistics compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Speeding drivers cause highway collisions, intersection crashes, and even left-turn accidents.
How does speeding cause accidents? Cars and other vehicles are more difficult to control at higher speeds. The faster a car is going, the greater the distance it will need to come to a complete stop. Drivers who are speeding are usually unable to stop in time to prevent a crash.
Each year, more than 1,000 people on average die in car accidents in Texas caused by speeding drivers. And it seems like those numbers keep getting worse every year. In one recent year, more than 1,400 people died in speeding accidents – more than any other state in the country.
Part of it has to do with Texas’ highway speed limits, which are some of the fastest in the country. Many highways in Dallas – including I-45 – have a 75 mph speed limit. And the fastest highway speed limit in Texas tops out at 85 mph.
What makes speeding accidents so dangerous?
There are several reasons why speeding-related car accidents often result in serious injuries or fatalities. Such reasons include:
- The speeding vehicle crashing into another car does so with significantly more force.
- All drivers have less time to react and avoid a collision.
- Speeding often involves other reckless driving behaviors, including:
- Tailgating, changing lanes without warning, and other forms of aggressive driving.
- Drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs.
- Texting while driving.
Speeding might not seem like a serious crime. Many people drive a few miles over the speed limit. But when a speeding driver (especially one going significantly over the speed limit) crashes into your car, the consequences are often much worse than if the driver had been obeying the speed limit. When that happens, it’s our job to hold them accountable for their actions.
Why do I need a lawyer?
You might think you don’t need an attorney if a speeding driver caused your accident. The driver clearly broke the law. A Dallas police officer or state trooper from the Texas Highway Patrol is likely investigating your crash. Isn’t that enough?
Don’t be so sure. When police investigate a car accident, their primary concern is determining whether the driver was speeding or broke any other traffic laws. What they’re not concerned with is whether you’re fairly compensated for all your accident-related expenses, including the cost of your medical care, vehicle repairs, and replacement income if you cannot work.
That’s your lawyer’s job. That’s why it’s critical that you carefully choose an attorney to handle your legal case. Your Dallas car accident lawyer should understand how the legal system works here and know how to investigate such complex cases. We believe our law firm is the right choice for you.
