Reston, VA Truck Accident Lawyers Can Help When an Accident is the Result of Excessive Speeding

Reston VA truck accident lawyersEven though there are many laws and regulations that are supposed to prevent truck drivers from speeding, there continues to be a need for Reston, VA truck accident lawyers who are experienced at successfully defending the rights of speeding truck accident victims.

Speeding is a traffic violation that some can be incredibly dismissive of. Although speeding can seem like a harmless infraction, the slightest overcorrection or mistake can have devastating consequences. When a person is driving at a higher speed, their vehicle will not be able to accomodate the quick response that may be needed when faced with hazards on the road. Unfortunately, the impact of a car accident due to driving at excessive speeds can result in severe injuries and in some cases, death. As a victim of a motor vehicle accident of this magnitude, it’s highly likely that you are entitled to compensation. Contact Reston, VA truck accident lawyers for guidance regarding the best way to pursue compensation so that the speeding truck driver who is responsible for your accident, pays for his or her actions.

The Need for Speed

Driving too fast is unfortunately, commonplace. There are a number of reasons people do not adhere to the speed limit. When doing so, many do not consider the consequences if they were to hit another vehicle. When a driver is going more than 25 miles over the speed limit, their behavior is constituted as reckless. Despite this, there are a number of reasons a person may choose to engage in such reckless behavior:

  • They have a legitimate emergency
  • They are a fast driver all the time
  • They are late or in a hurry for something
  • They believe that speeding is not harmful
  • They get a thrill from speeding

At the end of the day, no reason for speeding justifies the possible consequences in the event of an accident. The consequences of driving too fast far outweigh the need to do so, especially if a driver is getting paid to drive. Contact truck accident lawyers who know how to successfully defend the rights of people who are injured because of speeding truck drivers in Reston and throughout the state of VA.

Reckless Driving

In most states, when a driver is speeding excessively it is considered to be reckless driving. If this is found to be the case in the wake of a car accident, in most cases, the driver can be liable for damages. Reckless driving occurs when a driver behaves with a complete disregard for the safety of others on the road. As the victim of a car accident caused by a reckless driver, it will be important to take stock of your injuries and the impact the accident has had on you. Enlisting the help of Reston, VA truck accident lawyers may be in your best interest when it comes to pursuing damages against the party responsible for causing an accident.

Knowing When to Take Action

It can be hard to determine whether to contact an attorney following a car accident. Despite this, it’s important to at least speak with an attorney even if your injuries are minor or you do not believe you have a strong case. Confirmation from someone with legal experience can make all the difference. Consider contacting an attorney if:

  • You were injured in the accident and required medical attention
  • You had to take time away from work to recover from the accident
  • Someone you love died in the accident
  • You filed an insurance claim that was denied
  • The other party is attempting to shift the blame over to you
  • You have been contacted by an attorney representing the other party

The last thing you want is for an opportunity to obtain the compensation you may be entitled to pass you by. By taking advantage of the free consultation offered by many Reston VA truck accident lawyers, you can get a clear picture of what your next steps should look like.

Falling victim to such a terrible accident can result in severe injuries. In many cases, the faster someone is driving at the time of a crash involving a truck, the worse the accident could be. Chances are, you’ve suffered an injury that can take quite some time to recover. A truck accident attorney can not only provide you with the legal experience you require but a shoulder to lean on during an emotionally trying time.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
