Many auto accidents occur because the driver is going too fast. In spite of improved seat belts, airbags, and safety measure in vehicles, the number of road fatalities has increased in recent years. Speeding increases both the risk of a crash and the severity of damage and injuries should a crash occur.
Teens are especially likely to drive too fast and become involved in an accident. Lack of driving skills and recklessness make teens twice as likely to be involved in a crash as older drivers. Speeding is especially unsafe for teens because it's so easy to misjudge the stopping distance required at higher speeds.
Regardless of the reason why, you may find yourself a victim of an
auto accident. If the other driver was at fault, it may be difficult
to negotiate the details with their insurance company. In our
opinion, it is absolutely critical that you pursue the proper legal representation should you be involved in a serious auto accident.
