I Was Hit by a Driver Who Was Speeding. Can a Lawyer Help Me?

 Posted on March 10, 2023 in Car Accidents

Untitled---2023-11-10T162933.819.jpgSpeed limits may seem inconvenient to some, but they exist for a reason. These limitations are put in place for the safety of all drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and cyclists. Unfortunately, not everyone follows the rules of the road, and irresponsible drivers put lives in danger. If you have been hit by a speeding driver and are looking for ways to seek justice, consider hiring an experienced personal injury lawyer for help filing an injury claim.

Insurance Settlements and Personal Injury Claims

The faster a driver is traveling, the greater the force of a collision. Consequently, speeding-related accidents can result in severe, painful injuries including broken bones, spine injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), organ damage, facial injuries, and more.

A personal injury lawyer will be able to evaluate your case and provide advice on how to proceed. Typically, the first avenue for seeking compensation is a claim with the speeding driver's insurance company. Auto insurers are responsible for providing compensation to victims of car accidents when their policyholders are at fault. However, insurance companies are not always willing to pay out the full amount of a car accident claim. They deny claims, try to get claimants to take lowball settlements, and intentionally draw out the process.

Dealing with an insurance company is the last thing you should have to worry about when you are healing from a serious car wreck. An experienced attorney can gather evidence, negotiate a settlement with the insurance company on your behalf, and fight for maximum compensation for the damages you suffered.

An Attorney Can Represent You During a Lawsuit

If negotiations with the insurance company fail to result in an adequate settlement, a personal injury lawyer can help you file a lawsuit. In a personal injury lawsuit, you can demand compensation for vehicle damage, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses related to the accident. Personal injury litigation is a complicated process that requires legal knowledge and experience. An attorney can help build a strong case for you and, if needed, represent your interests in court.
