Been hit by a speeding motorist? Make your claim accelerate with the leading law firm to advise and assist you!
Speeding is one of the main causes of road traffic accidents on our roads. Many motorists fail to adhere to the designated speed restrictions in residential areas and built up areas of our towns and cities. Unfortunately this lack of safe driving can have catastrophic consequences for pedestrians and other road users.
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident due to a speeding motorist and you have incurred injuries as a result within the last 3 years, then you may be legally entitled to pursue personal injury compensation for your Milford Haven road traffic accidents.
A safe speed
Road signs clearly inform motorists and road users of the legal speed limit in an area. In places where there have been a high number of collisions and casualties on the roads, a speed camera may be installed to monitor and identify culprits who exceed the maximum speed limit.
The risks of driving at speed
Although motorways allow the driver to cruise at a relatively high speed, they are infact safer roads to drive on than most major highways. However, when motorists drive on minor roads at speed, the risks associated with this increased speed rise dramatically.
- increased stopping distance
- increased risk of skidding
- increased risk of losing control of the vehicle
- failure to stop in time at traffic signs, signals and road markings
- driving without adequate care and attention
- increased reaction time
- increased risk of injury to pedestrians
- increased risk of collisions with other road users
- increased risk of rear end shunt
Injuries caused by collisions at speed
It is not only the drivers of vehicles who may sustain injuries in a collision at speed. The passengers and pedestrians out on the street may also be injured as a result of the dangerous driving of a speeding motorist.
- cuts, bruising and lacerations
- internal injury
- soft tissue injury
- neck injury
- facial injury
- broken, fractured or dislocated bones e.g. pelvis, limbs and neck
- head injury
- loss of consciousness
- fatal injury
