Speeding, Reckless Driving Accidents Complicated

Count on Costa Mesa car accident lawyer Dan Carlton after your crash

Speed limits exist for a reason. When people drive too fast, they don't have time to stop or slow down to avoid a collision. Some drivers don't care. They drive too fast and end up causing serious car accidents. That's why speeding and reckless driving remain one of the leading causes of car accidents despite the efforts of police and safe driving advocates.

Knowing what to do after a speeding car accident can be overwhelming. The injuries sustained by people in such crashes can be very severe due to the force of a speeding vehicle crashing into another car. Fatalities can be common as well.

We know because we've been handling such accident claims at the Law Offices of Daniel C. Carlton in Costa Mesa for more than 40 years. A lifelong resident of Southern California, attorney Carlton knows what evidence to look for and what questions to ask in order to build the strongest possible legal case.

Why speeding and reckless driving is so dangerous

Driving a few miles over the speed limit might not seem like a big deal, but when drivers break the law and drive too fast, they put everyone at risk on the road. The same goes for reckless drivers who tailgate or weave in and out of traffic. Eventually, their luck runs out and they end up causing a serious crash.

When they do, speeding and reckless drivers often end up causing serious accidents with severe injuries. That's what makes these crashes so dangerous - and terrifying. Without warning, another car can suddenly crash into your vehicle at a high speed.

The faster a driver goes, the more severe the accident. It's that simple. Yet there's nothing simple about accidents involving speeding or reckless drivers. Multiple cars can often be involved. Conflicting stories about what happened are common. That's why you need us on your side.

What we can do for you

When you have an experienced car accident attorney working for you, you can take an aggressive approach right from the start. This is important because many speeding or reckless drivers often deny doing anything wrong. They might even try to claim that you were the one who caused the crash.

Then there's the insurance companies. They often quickly take the side of the driver who caused the crash, especially if it means they can pay you less money - or nothing at all. Because the injuries are often so severe in such cases, the financial impact of such accidents can be thousands or even millions of dollars.

Insurance companies don't intimidate us. We know how to negotiate effectively with them. If they refuse to cooperate, we're prepared to take them to court.
