When a driver who was speeding causes an accident, there is little question about whether he or she was negligent. Speeding is the definition of negligence. Drivers who speed are in violation of city, state or federal laws meant to protect all vehicles, their occupants, pedestrians and others. Speeders put themselves above the law and put others at risk. We hold them financially accountable for their actions.

The economic cost of these accidents is estimated to be $40.4 billion each year.

We are passionate about our work and, frankly, we are very good at it. We have achieved significant verdicts and settlements for clients injured by speeding drivers in a variety of circumstances.
