You may be aware that the faster a driver is going, the more serious the outcome could be if they hit a pedestrian, a cyclist or indeed another car. Speed limits are there for a good reason, and if someone goes over the speed limit they will be breaking the law.
If you’ve been hurt in an accident with a speeding driver and you know they were at fault, you should think about whether you might claim speeding driver injury compensation. The faster the other driver is going, the more likely it is that any injuries you suffer will be more serious than they may otherwise have been.
Injuries can change your life
While some injuries may heal given time, others may be completely life-changing. A broken leg may leave you with a permanent limp. A severe back injury could leave you paralysed. A head injury could leave you coping with epilepsy or severe memory loss.
In any event, the faster a car is going when it is involved in an accident, the greater the chance is that one or more other people could end up being seriously hurt. If that driver was negligent in going above the speed limit when the actual limit was clearly signed or in force, they could be liable for the accident. This could potentially lead to speeding driver injury compensation for you and for anyone else who was injured in the accident.
