Q: How does speeding affect my Florida car accident case?

A: A vehicle’s speed is a common contributing factor in a West Palm Beach car accident, but it’s also the easiest factor to control. Studies have shown that decreasing speed, even one mile an hour, will decrease the accident rate as much as 4% before any other factors are even considered, such as weather, road conditions and time of day.

How can a speeding driver affect your auto accident case ?

  • Higher injuries: Since speeding cars take much more force to stop, the accidents they cause often inflict much more damage to Florida car accident victims.
  • Shows recklessness: A driver that ignores speeding regulations may ignore other rules, such as talking on a cell phone, running red lights, or forgoing car insurance.
  • Aggressive or impaired driving: By speeding, a driver is demonstrating poor judgment. This could be an effect of driving while tired, stressed, or even under the influence.
