Truck Accidents Caused By Speeding
It is simple physics. The heavier a motor vehicle is, (such as a semitruck) the longer it will take to stop. When you add excessive speed to this equation, the amount of time needed for a complete stop increases. So whether there are adverse weather conditions, sudden stops in traffic, or reckless lane changes, a speeding truck driver is a real risk for causing a serious accident.

Proving A Trucking Accident Is Speed-Related
Our lawyers understand how to approach any type of truck accident case, including when allegations of speeding are on the table.

These highly skilled engineers can conclusively state the speed of a truck before an accident by looking at things such as placement of skid marks and location of accident debris.

But proving liability is only half of the legal battle. After we establish speed and fault, our lawyers are equipped to deal with the numerous levels of insurance and multiple liable parties. We are also skilled in working with medical specialists to prove the extent of your injuries and can fairly quantify the cost of medical care, lost wages and the suffering you have endured.
