If your car accident was caused by a speeding driver, then you should hold them fully liable for your losses and damages. Making sure that you get the money that you deserve will be a multistep process, though, and the other driver will fight you at each step. Come to Christie Farrell Lee & Bell in Indianapolis for powerful legal counsel. We know how to hold speeding drivers responsible for the terrible accidents they cause.
Speeding Causes Countless Accidents
Speeding is the most common form of reckless driving that does not involve driver distraction. Each year in Indiana, speeding motorists cause nearly 20,000 crashes on average. It is important to hold each one of those drivers liable.
When speeding, a driver causes the following issues and more:
- Reduced reaction time to emergencies
- Higher risk of catastrophic injury if a crash occurs
- Decrease in seatbelt and airbag efficiency
- Severe risk of a crash at intersections and blind corners
Damages Available in a Speeding Accident Claim
The damages available to you in a speeding accident claim will depend on the severity of your injuries and losses, as well as the insurance claims our team can file against. When we get to work on your car accident claim, we focus on two things: making sure you are confident in our abilities and making sure your claim’s value is maximized. We do not want to leave even a dollar of compensation unclaimed if it is rightfully owed to you.
Our team might be able to recover these damages:
- Past and future medical treatment costs
- Lost wages and employment benefits
- Lowered income earning capacity
- Miscellaneous costs you have paid
- Pain and suffering damages
- Costs associated with a permanent disability
We can negotiate with the speeding driver’s auto insurance company to get a settlement in your name. If we have concrete evidence that the policyholder was speeding, then the insurance company might be more willing to settle. However, when a settlement is not an option because no fair offer is given, we can take the insurer to court on your behalf.
