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.

Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.

Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
I would like to thank Vanessa Rodriguez for helping me with my case because I was in total shock about the accident. She had listened to all my concerns and had answered every question I had . She was great !!!
