Memphis Speeding Accidents

Memphis Speeding Accidents

Speeding accidents account for many injuries across the South. These accidents may result in serious injuries or even death, especially on narrow roads or highways. In many cases, an insurance company for an at-fault driver will call an accident victim to try to secure an admission that they were partially to blame. You should not talk to an insurance adjuster for the at-fault driver before consulting your own attorney. At Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz, our Memphis car accident attorneys can help victims of negligent or reckless drivers seek compensation for their injuries.

Pursue Compensation for a Speeding Accident

Speeding occurs when someone travels faster than the posted speed limit. It may also occur when someone is driving faster than road conditions or weather conditions warrant. For example, when it is rainy or there is hail, it may be important for drivers to drive more slowly than the posted speed limit in order to avoid rear-ending the driver ahead of them. Drivers should also exercise due care when it is snowing or roads are icy.

After a speeding accident, it is important to call the police to the scene. If the other driver is cited for speeding, this may help prove your personal injury claim. You may also want to take down eyewitness contact information if any eyewitnesses observed the other car driving at an excessive speed. You will need to establish your personal injury case by a preponderance of the evidence, which generally means that you must prove that your version of what happened is more likely true than not. It will be helpful to have as much evidence as possible to prove that the other driver was speeding.

Sometimes the other driver will claim that you were partially or fully to blame for a speeding accident. Your recovery will be reduced to the extent that you were at fault for the crash, even if your injuries are serious. This means that it is crucial not to give the other party any ammunition to use against you. It is also critical to interview all witnesses to get their versions of what happened.

Sometimes speeding accidents are caused by multiple parties, each of whom was overly eager to get to a particular destination. An experienced car accident attorney understands the importance of conducting a thorough investigation into the accident and looking into all potential avenues of recovery for the victim’s damages.
