Speeding Increases the Risk of Serious Injuries in an Accident
In Warner Robins and across the rest of Georgia, there are laws in place that regulate the speeds drivers can go. This includes posted limits, per O.C.G.A. §40-6-181, and driving too fast for road, traffic, or weather conditions, per O.C.G.A. §40-6-180.
While speeding on its own may not always cause an accident, it can contribute to many other careless and reckless acts. A speeding driver is less likely to be able to stop quickly or maneuver around an object in the road. They may lose control and fail to maintain their lane or cause another type of collision. If speeding contributed to the cause of your traffic accident, you might be able to hold the at-fault motorist accountable for it.

It is important to note that you could also be partially responsible for your collision if your speed contributed to the accident.

Seeking and Securing Damages in a Speeding Accident
There are generally two ways that Bader Scott Injury Lawyers can hold a speeding driver accountable and recover a financial payout for our client. We are usually able to do this through an out-of-court settlement.
In many cases, we do not need to file a lawsuit in civil court at all. We can approach the liable motorist’s insurer and present our case, demanding they agree to a just settlement instead. This may take some negotiations, but it is the most common way we recover compensation for our clients. The other option is to take the case to court.
The financial recovery we secure for our car accident clients may include the following:
- Current and future treatment and medical-related expenses
- Compensation for lost wages and reduces earning ability
- Property damages, including their vehicle
- Other related expenses
- Pain and suffering damages
- Other intangible losses
Certain family members can pursue wrongful death damages after a fatal traffic accident under O.C.G.A §51-4-2. If your loved one passed away due to their traffic accident injuries, our team may be able to help. We can review your qualifications and determine if the facts of your family member’s accident support this type of legal action.
Statute of Limitations Apply to Car Accident Lawsuits in Warner Robins
If it becomes necessary, our team can pursue a civil lawsuit in Houston County, Peach County, or other nearby jurisdictions. We may need to move forward with a personal injury lawsuit in your case if:
- The insurance company denies your claim.
- The at-fault driver refuses to accept responsibility.
- The insurance company claims you contributed significantly to the accident.
- There are other reasons that make this a necessary option.
Lawsuits generally take longer and cost more than settling out of court, so we do not usually take this step unless there is a good reason to do so. We may also file paperwork to begin a lawsuit if we are close to the deadline and have not yet reached a settlement agreement.
This is important because if we miss the deadline, you could lose the right to file a civil suit against the speeding driver later. Under O.C.G.A §9-3-33, the deadline for filing in Georgia is two years from the date of the accident.
