Common Causes | Speeding
Speeding continues to be a leading factor in car and truck crashes. Unfortunately, when drivers disregard the speed limit, they often have a disregard for other traffic safety rules. A driver who is exceeding safe speed limits has less control over their vehicle or truck when trying to stop, change lanes or avoid another car. The Kansas Department of Transportation lists ‘speeding’ in the same category as ‘aggressive driving.’ A large truck moving at a high rate of speed has even less ability to stop, slow down or avoid impact with other vehicles. Speeding and aggressive driving can result in accidents causing serious injury and death.
In all large truck cases it is essential that measures be taken promptly to preserve evidence, investigate the accident in question, and to enable physicians or other expert witnesses to thoroughly evaluate any injuries.
