Speeding really does increase risks

It's fairly common for people to break the speed limit. Many people do it every day. A lot of these people consider themselves good drivers. They may not even think of going 60 miles per hour in a 55-MPH zone as speeding, even though it is.

As such, it's important to point out that, no matter how commonplace speeding may become, it really does increase the dangers on the road. It does this in two main ways.

First off, it just makes it more likely that a car will crash. A speeding driver may lose control, may not be able to react in time, or may not have time to analyze the situation on the road around them. Even mild speeding -- like going five over -- means you have to react that much faster.

Perhaps the bigger issue, though, is that it increases the odds of death. In 2017, for instance, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that more than a quarter of all deadly crashes involved speed.

That speed may not cause the accident. Maybe it would have happened at 30 miles per hour or 60 miles per hour. However, all of the extra energy at 60 miles per hour vastly increases the odds of serious and fatal injuries. People get in low-speed crashes and walk away unharmed all the time, while high-speed crashes often put them in the hospital.

Have you gotten injured in an accident with a speeding driver? If so, you need to know how to seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other costs.
