Disobeying the speed limit is reckless, dangerous, and against the law. If you or a loved one suffered injuries in a vehicle accident that involved a speeding driver, Bader Scott Injury Lawyers can help you hold them responsible for your financial damages and pain and suffering.
Our Carrollton exceeding posted speed limit accident lawyer can help you prove that a speeding driver caused your injuries and resulting damages. We will fight to secure fair compensation with an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit.
Our Lawyers Can Prove Another Driver Exceeded the Speed Limit
Winning compensation for your car accident damages requires proving that another party’s negligent actions caused your injuries. Driving faster than the posted speed limit violates O.C.G.A. § 40-6, Article 9. Because speeding violates the law, it is negligent “per se,” meaning “on its face.”
In other words, proving another party was speeding is enough to establish negligence. Our attorneys can show that another motorist was exceeding posted speed limits using:
- Police reports
- Tire marks
- Photographs of your damaged vehicle
- Red light camera images
- Speed detection device data
- Eyewitness statements
- Surveillance or cell phone video
- Analysis from crash reconstruction experts
In addition to collecting evidence, our award-winning legal team will help you evaluate your damages and prepare and file claims or lawsuits against all liable parties. Let us worry about your legal issues so you can worry about getting better.
