The Dangers of Speeding

The number one primary crash factor in California (in 2019) was speeding. Speeding is dangerous to drivers, passengers, construction workers and law enforcement. Excessive speed is clearly against the law, which often will determine the responsible party. A violation of a speeding law can be negligence per se, or clear negligence. However, there can be factors on the part of all involved that require legal analysis and expertise to sort out who is at fault. The ultimate determination of who is at fault can be both factual and legal. That is where the attorneys at Brown & Gessell come in. We have experience in many different forms of accidents and the different laws that regulate such instances.

We understand that in such high-speed accidents, the consequences, injuries and losses are often serious. This loss may only be of monetary items like your vehicle, but it can also take the form of lost wages, both past and future, which we call loss of earning capacity. We at Brown & Gessell work hard to get you back on your feet and behind the wheel again. Even if you have to stay off your feet, are incapacitated or hospitalized, our dedication to your case from beginning to end means will aid you in any way possible, including home and hospital visits, when needed.
