Speeding is a major problem on Ohio roads

Drivers in the Dayton area may be annoyed when they see police officers on the side of the road pulling over speeders, but they should know how dangerous speeding is. No one expects they will be in a car accident while they’re driving on Ohio roads, but thousands of families are affected by a motor vehicle accident each year.

Speeding is one of the major causes of car accidents in Ohio and across the United States. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, speeding killed more than 9,700 people in 2017 and was the cause of 26 percent of traffic fatalities that year. Speeding endangers the life of the person who is driving too fast along with everyone they meet on the road. At any time, a speeding driver could lose control and cause a major crash. Many times, accidents that involved speeding are much more severe with serious injuries as well.

When a person is involved in a car accident it is often a traumatic experience. Not only can there be property loss, but serious injuries involved as well. An injured victim may wonder how they are going to pay for the medical expenses they incurred due to the crash, especially if they are out of work for a while. If a car accident victim was injured due to no fault of their own, they may want to speak with a legal professional. An attorney can investigate the cause of the accident and get the answers their client deserves as to what happened. Depending on the circumstances, compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.

Speeding causes many accidents in the Dayton area each year. Many of these accidents are totally preventable if the driver chose not to speed. Those who are injured in accidents caused by speeders have the right to hold them accountable for their negligence.
