Speeding-Related Crashes in California
When you speed, you increase the likelihood of a serious car accident. Thousands are killed nationwide in high-speed crashes each year, accounting for nearly a quarter of fatal car crashes. 925 people in California lost their lives because of speeding drivers in 2017 alone.
Speeding makes you less able to control your vehicle and avoid dangerous roadway hazards. The resulting injuries are also magnified due to the force of impact. In some cases, a skilled California personal injury attorney can help injured parties recover lost compensation for their injuries.
