The Dangers of Speeding
Regardless of where you may live or work in Florida, there are posted signs letting you know the legal speed limit for that particular stretch of road. Unfortunately, violating these limits is all too common practice, especially through busy intersections and heavily traveled interstate roads. People in a rush to get to work, to the beach or pick up the kids fail to adhere to the posted speeds and create potentially dangerous situations along the road. As a result, thousands of motorists are involved in speed related accidents each year throughout the state, some with deadly results. In a vast majority of these accidents, the driver was unable to take appropriate actions because of the speed in which they were traveling.
In a high-speed crash, the initial impact is your car hitting the other vehicle. Following that, there are secondary and tertiary impacts that involve your body and the car’s interior. Naturally, a well-designed and well-maintained vehicle can absorb the majority of the force in a low-speed crash. But as a car accelerates, it’s safety features become less and less effective, to the point of being obsolete at extreme speeds. Some of the injuries resulting from high-speed collisions are:
- Traumatic brain or head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Soft tissue injuries and internal organ
- Herniated disks
Adjustment And Representation
When dealing with insurance adjusters, it’s important to remember that they will do everything they can to keep your settlement as low as possible.
