Birmingham Car Accident Attorneys Speed: Speed leads to worse accidents, it's basic physics; an increase in the velocity of an object will increase its kinetic energy and thus its mass resulting in a more powerful crash.

Of course you don't have to be a physicist to understand how speed can be dangerous. The faster a car is traveling, the less time the driver has to take actions to avoid a collision. The faster your speed, the harder the impact. The harder the impact, the greater chance that someone will suffer serious injuries, including death.

According to a 2011 study released by the Alabama Department of Transportation, in 2011 there were 127,653 automobile accidents in Alabama; 23,057 of these wrecks occurred in Jefferson County, Alabama. 9,114 of these car accidents occurred because one of the parties was speeding; 220 of these wrecks involved a fatality. A recent report from Louisiana reported that 25% of all traffic fatalities were due in part to excessive speed.

If you or a loved one was injured in an automobile accident, you have plenty to worry about. Dealing with what steps need to be taken in order to ensure you receive all the benefits you are legally entitled to receive probably isn't a major concern immediately after a car wreck, but later on failing to have taken the appropriate actions to protect your interests can cause you to more frustration and suffering.

You don't have to deal with this alone.

If you were injured in a car wreck and you have questions about your rights, don't hesitate to contact and speak with one of the experienced Birmingham Car Accident Attorneys at Powell and Denny today.
