Speeding Laws in Georgia
- Driving too fast for conditions
- Exceeding posted speed limits
While neither of these actions directly cause accidents, speeding can contribute to and trigger actions that do cause accidents. For example, speeding decreases the time a driver has to avoid a collision while also increasing their stopping distance. It can also make it more difficult to maintain control of their vehicle, especially if the driver needs to make quick maneuvers to avoid a hazard.
If a driver was speeding and this played a role in your Sandy Springs accident, this fact may be proven based on the crash report filed by law enforcement. In many cases, an at-fault driver will receive a citation for the traffic laws they broke that led to the collision. This may include driving too fast for conditions or exceeding posted speed limits. However, even when the at-fault driver does not receive a speeding ticket from a responding officer, Bader Scott Injury Lawyers may be able to produce evidence of their negligence to hold them liable for your losses.
Georgia’s Comparative Negligence System
It is also important to note that, since speeding only contributes to an accident and is not a direct cause, you may be able to recover compensation for your damages even if you were speeding at the time of the accident. Georgia’s comparative negligence system allows victims to recover monetary damages as long as they were less than 50 percent at fault in an accident. However, the amount they recover may be reduced by their percentage of fault for the accident.
A Sandy Springs speeding accident lawyer from Bader Scott Injury Lawyers can gather evidence of the full extent of the responsible party’s liability when we represent you. This may include witness statements, photos or videos from the accident scene, testimony from accident reconstruction experts, and more.

Pursuing Compensation for Your Injuries
Some car accident cases reach an out-of-court settlement with the at-fault driver’s insurance provider during settlement negotiations. In an effort to reach a fair settlement, Bader Scott Injury Lawyers will present the evidence we collect to the responsible party’s insurance company to demonstrate:
- Their policyholder caused your accident
- You suffered injuries and monetary damages as a result of the accident
- There is a fair settlement range to compensate you for your damages
If the insurance company refuses to negotiate a just agreement, Bader Scott Injury Lawyers can take your personal injury lawsuit to trial. Per O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33, a general two-year statute of limitations applies to personal injury lawsuits in Georgia. It is important that we act before this deadline to keep your right to sue open.

- Ambulance transportation, treatment, and other medical care costs
- Ongoing care and support, as necessary
- Lost income and benefits
