Factors Contributing to High Speed Car Accidents
High speed impact crashes often leave accident victims with debilitating injuries and expensive medical bills. Additionally, high speed car accidents can be fatal. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, about 10.2 million people in 2008 died as a direct result of a motor vehicle accident. About 30 percent of all traffic fatalities can be attributed to driving above the speed limit.
Oftentimes, high speed collisions happen on highways where the nature of the road allows motorists to reach speeds they wouldnt be able to on smaller, inner-city roads.
These types of accidents are typically caused by a careless driver, reckless or aggressive driving techniques, drivers who are distracted or failure to follow the rules of the road.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), road design plays a huge role in the occurrence of speed-related accidents. In their report, after examining crash statistics from 2002, about 40 percent of high-speed related fatalities happened when the driver took a curve. This is more than double the amount of fatalities that occurred in non-speeding related crashes under similar road conditions.
High Speed Car Accident Damages
The severity of injuries incurred can be directly related to the speed of the vehicles in the collision. Generally, cars moving at slower speeds when colliding will cause less serious injuries as opposed to those incurred will driving fast.
Along the same lines, the faster a vehicle is traveling when it crashes, the more property damage that the vehicle will sustain.
Extensive property damage and debilitating injuries can become expensive. At Phillips Law Group, our personal injury lawyers in Phoenix believe that if your losses were caused by the actions or negligence of another driver, they should be held accountable.
With the help of an experienced car accident lawyer, crash victims increase their chances of recovering fair compensation for damages related to the wreck.

High speed car accidents could easily be classified as one of the most avoidable type of auto accident. Arizona rules of the road, such as speed limits, were put in place in order to keep drivers safe. By not following these laws, motorists put themselves and other drivers at risk of sustaining injuries and property damage.
Despite unrelenting reminders of the dangers of speeding, many drivers are more worried about reaching their destination quickly rather than the risks they are taking behind the wheel.
High speed car accident victims may be able to file a claim in order to recover damages, such as medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering. A knowledgeable attorney at Phillips Law Group can evaluate the merits of your potential lawsuit and guide you on the best course of action in pursuing legal remedies for your condition.

My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
