The Dangers of Speeding
Speeding is an epidemic throughout the United States. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 2013 Traffic Safety Facts report, speeding contributed to approximately 30 percent of all fatal auto accidents, accounting for the loss of 10,219 lives in 2012 alone. Between 2003 and 2012, more than 120,000 lives were lost in speeding-related auto accidents in the United States.
In 2015, according to the Texas Department of Transportation, 745 people were killed in 653 different speeding-related auto accidents. Of particular concern to residents of Houston is the fact that Harris County registered the highest number of fatal crashes due to speeding of all the state’s counties at 66, with a total of 78 lives claimed. Overall, there were 1,623 speeding-related auto accidents in the county in 2015, and an astonishing 29,434 speeding-related auto accidents in the state.
If you or a member of your family was injured in a speeding-related accident caused by another driver’s negligence, or if you tragically lost a family member in such an accident, you may be eligible to receive compensation for the losses and expenses you have sustained as a result. Shane Kadlec can prepare the strongest case possible on your behalf and fight for your right to obtain the full measure of damages you deserve.
