Dangers of Speeding

Millions of car accidents happen annually in the U.S., and a lot of these accidents are the result of speeding drivers.  Speeding, or exceeding the posted speed limit, is both illegal and unsafe, and puts many people at risk for injury.  Not only is the speeding driver at risk, but any other driver on the road, as well as bicyclists and pedestrians, may also be subject to injury.

Serious Dangers

Speeding can lead to serious dangers for anyone who is involved.  Most often, these dangers involve significant injuries and related costs.  While the exact injuries of a speeding car accident are impossible to predict, some common dangers associated with speeding accidents include:

  • Neck or spinal cord damage
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Head / brain injuries
  • Contusions / excessive bruising
  • Lacerations / broken bones / fractures
  • Loss of consciousness
  • General trauma

All of these injuries can be extremely dangerous for a person to have to endure, and they also often come with extensive medical bills in order for a person to seek proper treatment.  Sadly, many car accident victims cannot afford the treatment that they need to address their injuries, and can be left without the means to recover fully.  However, if a speeding driver caused the accident, then some of your own costs might be defrayed.
