Injury Attorney for Car and Truck Accidents Caused by Speeding in San Marcos and Schertz

Exceeding the speed limit on U.S. roadways is commonplace, so much so that we may overlook how dangerous speeding can actually be. Statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) tell a scarier story. A recent study showed that 26 percent of all auto accident fatalities involved at least one driver who was speeding, and Texas had the second-highest number of speeding-related fatalities among all 50 states. These numbers do not even include non-fatal accidents in which someone is seriously injured.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident in which another driver was speeding, our New Braunfels Personal Injury Attorney can help you get fair compensation. We have been representing victims of car, truck, and motorcycle wrecks for over 20 years, and we strive to give quality, personal attention to local clients in the Comal, Guadalupe, and Hays County areas.

When Should You Pursue Compensation for a Speeding Accident?

In Texas, compensation may be granted for any injury from an accident caused by the negligence of one or more parties. Drivers who exceed the legal speed limit can be considered negligent because speeding represents a breach in the duty of care they owe to fellow motorists and other users of roadways. If it is determined that a driver's speeding caused the accident and resulted in damage-incurring injuries, victims may seek compensation in a personal injury case.

Speeding accidents can happen anywhere, from Texas's dangerous highways like I-35 and I-10, to backroads and residential areas. Speeding also tends to coincide with other negligent driving behavior including tailgating, aggressive and reckless driving, distracted driving, and drunk driving. In fact, the NHTSA recently reported that 37 percent of speeding drivers involved in fatal crashes had a blood alcohol content level above the legal limit of 0.08. Evidence of any of these exacerbating factors can help bolster your claim for compensation.

You may even be eligible for compensation if you were injured in an accident in which you were also speeding or otherwise partially at fault. Texas operates under a comparative negligence law, which means you can still receive some compensation if the other party was more than 50 percent responsible for the crash. Our personal injury law firm can help you determine if your case involves any of these factors that would impact your claim and the compensation you can receive.

After speaking with you, we will gather evidence from police, witnesses, and cameras to help you prove that speeding was the cause of the accident.
