Houston Speeding Accident Lawyer
Speeding is—without a doubt—one of the most common causes of car crashes in Texas. It’s a simple fact that the faster a vehicle goes, the less time the driver will have to react in time to road and traffic conditions.
Unfortunately, speeding drivers don’t just harm themselves in these accidents. Many of these crashes will involve other motorists and pedestrians—people who will get hurt and even killed through no fault of their own. If you were injured in a wreck such as this, a Houston speeding accident lawyer from Denena Points, PC can help you seek justice through compensation from the reckless driver who caused your crash.
Speeding: an Act of Negligence
Texas makes use of comparative fault laws when determining blame for car crashes. This means that after the evidence and arguments have been reviewed, all of the parties involved will have a percentage of fault assigned to them ranging from zero to one hundred.
In order for you to recover financial damages, someone else needs to be at least 51 percent at fault for what happened. Speeding is an act of negligence that should place a large portion of this fault squarely on the shoulders of the driver who hit you.
When we investigate your car accident, we’ll review evidence such as skid marks and the force that would be required to inflict the amount of damage done in the collision. These essential pieces will help us prove just how fast the other driver was going and why you deserve to be compensated for his or her negligence.
Damages for a Speeding Car Crash
The financial compensation you receive will be determined by the injuries you suffer, the medical care they require, the extent of the damage done to your vehicle, and how the accident has affected your life in general.
Direct financial damages are the most obvious items that will need to be factored into your settlement. This will include all of the following elements:
- Medical expenses, both current and future
- Caregiver expenses
- Home modifications made to accommodate your injury
- Lost wages and income if your injuries require time off from work
- Travel expenses necessitated by your medical care
- Vehicle repair or replacement
Your settlement won’t be complete if it only takes into account your direct expenses, however. A fair settlement should also compensate you for any noneconomic damages that you’ve suffered because of the speeding accident:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium (damage done to your personal relationships)
- Decreased enjoyment of life
