Car Accidents & Driving Over the Speed Limit

    The California DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) reports that speeding is one of the most common reasons behind car accidents across the state. When a driver breaks the speed limit, he / she places the lives of other drivers at stake and increases the likelihood of a serious accident. In a personal injury claim or lawsuit, driving at an unsafe speed may be considered a form of negligence. If your car accident was caused or aggravated by excessive speed, you could be eligible to receive compensation for:

    • Medical Expenses
    • Hospitalization
    • Pain & Suffering
    • Miss Wages
    • Non-economic Damages

    "Over the Limit" & Weather Conditions

    According to California law, a driver cannot exceed the posted speed limit or drive faster than is reasonably safe. In other words, it could be unlawful to drive at the posted speed limit if weather conditions, such as rain or fog, make it unsafe to drive at a normal speed. Failing to take the weather conditions into consideration is a form of negligence.

    Proving Negligence

    In the United States, motorists are obligated to drive safely. Any action that is is outside of "normal" behavior or is unsafe may be considered negligent. In order to obtain compensation after a car accident, you must be able to show that the other driver was negligent, and that his / her negligence caused your injury. We can help you establish a strong case to increase your chance of full compensation.
