Speeding is one of the most common forms of driver negligence and every year causes thousands of serious and sometimes fatal car accidents. In fact, speeding being a factor in fatal accidents has only gotten worse in the past decade in New York, according to fatal speeding car accident statistics compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Going faster than the posted speed limit is something a lot of drivers do, even if the dangers of speeding have been well-known for years. That’s why if you’re involved in a car accident with a driver who was going too fast, it’s critical to take strong legal action to protect your rights and get the compensation you deserve.
What can I be compensated for in my speeding accident?
Depending on the specific details of your case, you might qualify for a substantial cash payout. No two cases are ever the same, but in general you may be able to recover compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income from missed work
- Loss of earning capacity
- Replacement services (e.g., housecleaning, childcare)
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death (for immediate family members of fatal car accident victims)

Why is speeding so dangerous?
Research from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety has shown that speed is a factor in over 25 percent of all crash fatalities. In New York, those figures are even higher – 36 percent of fatal car accidents in New York involve speeding drivers.
It’s also been proven that as your speed increases, your chances of getting into an accident and sustaining a serious injury increase as well. If you’re driving too fast, you will:
- Need much more time to react to what’s in front of you while driving
- Need a greater distance to stop when applying your car’s brakes
- Be at a much higher risk of losing control of your car
- Reduce the effectiveness of your car’s safety features, such as seatbelts and airbags
Whether you got hurt in a crash because a drunk driver was going too fast or you sustained a severe injury in an accident because another driver was simply being reckless and speeding, a collision at above-average speeds can have a huge impact on your health and finances. That’s why you need a Bronx lawyer to stand up for you and demand full compensation for your damages.
