Speeding can lead to a serious motor vehicle accident

Even with speed limit signs posted all over the nation's highways, there are still people who disregard the law.

Unfortunately, speeding (and other forms or reckless driving) are responsible for many motor vehicle accidents every year. Taking this one step further, speeding can also cause an accident that results in serious injury or even death.

In addition to passenger vehicles, commercial trucks are also known for speeding from time to time. For example, trucks hauling coal can be found all over the highways in the state of West Virginia. Unfortunately, due to the fact that truckers are often paid by the load, they're always in a hurry to reach their destination.

If you're involved in an accident with a person who was speeding, there's one primary challenge staring you in the face: It's your word against theirs. In other words, the other party will claim that they were driving the speed limit.

At our law firm, we know that this is often the case. We also know that there are things you can do to prove that the other person was speeding. For example, you can lean on claims from witnesses. Along with this, technology in vehicles may also help you determine how fast the other car was traveling.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a motor vehicle accident, maybe because the other person was speeding, don't wait to receive medical treatment. Once you do this and have a treatment schedule in place, you can turn your attention to protecting your legal rights and seeking compensation.
