Jonesboro Speeding Accidents
Speeding is one of the leading causes of car accidents in cities across the country, and Jonesboro, Arkansas is no exception. Speeding is dangerous because it increases the distance that a car travels over time, which in turn increases the distance required for the car to come to a stop. It also decreases the time that a driver has to analyze and react to the actions of other drivers or changes in road conditions. This, in turn, leads to more speeding accidents. If you have been injured in a car accident by a driver who was speeding in Jonesboro or the surrounding area, the Jonesboro car accident attorneys at Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz can help you seek recovery from those responsible for your injuries. Our firm has assisted injured accident victims for over 30 years, and we have successfully obtained over $1.5 billion in compensation for our clients.Pursuing Your Claims After a Speeding Accident
In order to obtain compensation for your injuries, you will likely first need to prove that your injuries were caused by the negligence of the other driver. To do so, you will need to establish that the other driver owed you a duty of care, that the driver breached that duty, and that the driver’s breach caused you to suffer damages. In general, all drivers in Arkansas owe each other a duty to operate their vehicle in a manner that is reasonable under the circumstances. Proof that the other driver was speeding can help you establish that the other driver was not acting reasonably under the circumstances and thus breached their duty of care.
Calling the police after a speeding accident occurs and enlisting the assistance of an auto accident attorney early in your case are both ways to increase your chances of obtaining evidence supporting that the other driver was negligent in causing your injuries. The police will interview the other driver and any witnesses in the area, and the statements that they obtain will be put into their accident report. Those statements will contain information that may help you prove that the other driver was speeding or performing some other negligent action, such as texting while driving. An experienced Jonesboro attorney will be able to help you obtain that report as well as assist you in investigating any other potential sources of evidence, such as witnesses that the police did not interview, phone records, and more.
Once the negligence of the other driver has been established, you will likely be able to obtain recovery against the other driver for several categories of damages that may apply to your situation. These damages generally include medical bills incurred, wages lost, and pain and suffering you endured as a result of the accident. In order to ensure that you do not miss out on any of the categories of damages to which you are entitled, it is important to consult with a Jonesboro attorney who is experienced in handling motor vehicle accident cases.Seek Guidance From Our Experienced Jonesboro Attorneys
