Jackson, TN Speeding Accidents

Jackson Lawyers Fighting for Car Crash Victims

We have all driven past a car pulled over on the side of the road with blue lights flashing behind it and automatically assumed that the driver was being issued a speeding ticket. Most of us were probably correct in our presumption. Each day as we travel on our way to work, school, or home, we see cars speed past us like we are barely moving. Unfortunately, each day those same drivers cause countless accidents and sometimes devastating or fatal injuries. If you have been injured in a speeding accident, then the Jackson speeding accident attorneys at Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz may be able to assist you with your claim. We are the largest plaintiff’s personal injury law firm based in Tennessee, and we have represented clients for more than 30 years.

Car Wrecks Caused by Excessive Speed

Speed limits in Tennessee are not mere suggestions; they are the law. When a person drives in excess of the posted speed limit, absent some type of emergency, he or she is breaking the law just as if he or she was driving while intoxicated. Speed limit laws are imposed to prevent accidents and injuries. However, due to the hustle and bustle of everyday life, many drivers blatantly disregard the speed limit in their haste to get to their destinations. In fact, in Jackson and Madison County, speeding is consistently a common cause of collisions.

Damages Available to Victims of Speeding Car Accidents

While speeding increases the likelihood of an accident occurring, it also increases the likelihood of serious injuries being sustained. What damages are you entitled to if you are the victim of a speeding accident? You may be entitled to recover both economic and non-economic damages. A speeding accident lawyer at our Jackson office can advise you on your options.

Economic damages are normally the easiest to measure because they have a specific monetary value representing the loss. These damages include property damage repairs and towing fees, medical and prescription expenses incurred, and lost wages for time missed from work.

Non-economic damages, on the other hand, can be more difficult to measure as they do not have a specific or inherent monetary value. Non-economic damages include pain and suffering, emotional distress, disfigurement, and loss of enjoyment of life. It can be difficult to estimate the value of these damages since they will vary from one victim to another, depending on the specific facts of their cases. For example, an accident may affect multiple passengers in the same car in different ways. For that reason, subjective damages can be heavily disputed.

While insurance adjusters may agree on the dollar amount of the victim’s economic damages, they do not often agree on the amount of compensation the victim should receive for non-economic damages. For example, if the accident renders a victim unable to participate in lifelong hobbies, such as sports, fishing, or other forms of recreation, damages may be assigned to loss of enjoyment of life. In addition, damages can be obtained if the victim sustains permanent facial scarring due to coming in contact with broken glass from a window. An experienced car accident lawyer in Jackson can help devise a strategy to pursue damages that you are legally entitled to.
