Speeding Accidents Attorney

Serving McAllen, Mission, Edinburg & Pharr Texas

Speeding is among the most common traffic violations, and is one of the most dangerous behaviors a driver can commit. Unfortunately, many people disregard the danger of this driving behavior, choosing to engage in it despite the threat it poses to both their and other’s safety. As a result, many people sustain serious injuries in car accidents caused by speeding each year. From broken bones, head trauma and blood loss to brain damage and permanent damage, speeding accidents can cause victims extreme harm.

Patino Law Firm knows that many McAllen drivers have suffered from the unsafe behavior of other drivers, including speeding. While nothing can be done to reverse the consequences a speeding accident has had on a person’s life, the speeding driver can be held accountable for their actions.

Causes of Speeding Accidents

Though speeding is a dangerous activity in and of itself, it is actually the effects it has on a person’s driving that causes accidents. Typically, speeding increases the chances of an accident occurring due to:

  • Decreasing a person’s reaction time
  • Lowering visibility
  • Increasing adrenaline
  • Increasing nervousness / anxiety, especially in other drivers
  • Preventing a driver from being able to stop suddenly

When a person chooses to speed and increases the risk of an accident occurring as a result, they should be held accountable for the harm their recklessness has caused.
