If a speeding driver causes an accident, are they at fault for the accident?
The other driver is not necessarily responsible for the entire accident and ensuing damages because they were speeding. The exact cause of the accident must be determined first, and then the court will assess whether or not the other driver’s speed was a significant factor in the accident. Personal injury cases can be complex and sometimes, in cases where the other driver’s speed may or may not have been a contributing factor in the accident, require the testimony of expert witnesses to verify the speed and how it caused the accident.
If you were injured in a car accident involving a speeding driver, you may be able to recover financial compensation for related damages. Contact the Stevens Point car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C. at 800-242-2874.
