By turning over the hard legal work to a speeding accident lawyer from our team, you can focus your energies on recovering and rebuilding your life. No case is too difficult and no legal task is too small for Bader Scott Injury Lawyers. Here is a quick look at what we can do for you.
Investigating Your Car Accident
To build the strongest case possible, we must know as much as we can about how the accident happened, who caused it, and how it affected you. In addition to your testimony, we will collect and use evidence from:
- Accident reports
- Medical records
- Eyewitness accounts
- Expert testimony
- Video footage
- Still photographs
Pursuing Compensation for Your Injuries
The fastest way to get your money is usually by accepting a settlement from the insurance company. However, you may not want to accept the first settlement they offer, as insurance companies frequently offer less than you deserve in an effort to make the case go away.
We can fight for a fair settlement by:
- Scheduling a meeting with the insurance company
- Presenting evidence to the insurance company
- Negotiating aggressively to ensure your needs are met
- Reviewing the settlement agreement with you before you sign
If the insurance company still does not offer a fair settlement, we can take the case to court on your behalf. This may involve:
- Scheduling trial dates
- Submitting evidence to the court
- Preparing and presenting oral arguments
- Finding witnesses to testify in support of your case
- Questioning all witnesses on the stand

- Answering every question you have, no matter how big or how small

Start Our Claim or Lawsuit as Soon as Possible
If you are considering legal action, consult someone from our team as soon as you can. Doing so protects your rights in two ways:
- Staying within the statute of limitations: OCGA §9-3-33 requires car accident victims to take legal action within two years of the accident.
- Preserving evidence: The longer you wait, the more likely it is that important evidence will be lost, destroyed, or forgotten.
We Can Gather Evidence of the Other Driver’s Negligence
We can work to show that the driver’s speeding led to your accident. Even if the offending driver didn’t receive a traffic ticket, we could work to gather other forms of evidence that they were speeding, such as traffic camera footage and witness statements.
Even if someone follows the posted speed limit, they may still be guilty of negligence. Per the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS), the interstate and major road speed limits in Georgia range from 65 to 70 miles an hour, depending on what type of road you are on. Even so, the other driver still may have been driving too fast for conditions such as:
- Bad weather
- Poor visibility
- Traffic conditions
- Roadway obstructions
Drivers who fail to exercise caution and sound judgment could be held accountable. You can do this by filing a claim or lawsuit against them and seeking appropriate compensation for your injuries.
