How Does Speeding Increases The Chances Of Causing an Accident?

The time it takes to identify and respond to stimulus while driving is tremendously increased by higher speeds thus decreasing the probability to prevent a collision. On the other hand, high speeds greatly affect and increase other drivers’ errors for instance distractions, not adhering to lane discipline, and maintaining a safe distance, therefore, increasing the probability of being involved in a traffic collision.

Most speeding drivers are guilty of the miscalculation of believing that they hold more control over the vehicle than they actually do. When driving on a highway with several other cars it is almost impossible to calculate for the unknown. For instance when a driver decides to increase his speed without foreseeing the fact that another vehicle might swerve to his or her lane in a bid to avoid colliding with another driver on the other side thus causing disaster.

How Can I Prove That The Other Motorist Was Speeding When They Hit Me?

Bearing in mind that Georgia is an at-fault state, the burden of proving who is on the wrong is important especially when the accident inflicts severe injury and there is a need to take up legal action against the other motorist. This means that for an auto insurance company to pay for any damages, expenses, and medical bills there will be a need to ascertain which driver was in the wrong.

Drivers have to be liable for accidents that occur out of their negligence. This is where we come in as personal injury attorneys to help prove a liability with the available concrete evidence from the scene, to the satisfaction of the insurance company or a judge and jury depending on the circumstances at hand. It is important to provide detailed evidence of fault: For instance, documenting photos of the vehicle, pictures of the accident scene and witness statements, driver’s statements, a police report, would come in handy in proving liability.

Police Reports

Getting copies of the police reports for the accident is important as these are usually the first responders at the scene. These are written observations of the preliminary investigations carried out by the officer at the scene.

The report describes in detail the accident scene and gives concrete information on the incident, contains clues about liability, provides any witness statements, spells out if the other driver has been cited for any traffic violations before, and gives a conclusion of the officer as to which motorist was a fault.

  • For Georgia accidents, some basic rules may include the fact that:
  • The diver who broke the traffic rules is the liable one
  • The negligent driver for instance one who talks on the phone eats while driving is the person most likely to be at fault.
  • The driver of the vehicle that isn’t properly maintained for instance having faulty brake lights and most likely led to the crash is most likely to be at fault
  • The driver behind is most likely at fault for rear-end accidents as it is assumed they were driving too closely

However, there are several exceptions. In all accidents, the most important thing is to file a police report and notify your insurance agency. The adjuster from the insurance company investigates and reviews the facts provided in for instance the police report, the statements from both drivers and witnesses, investigation of the scene, and the physical conditions of both vehicles

This information is then used to reconstruct the crash scene to help ascertain who was at fault They may employ the services of a professional accident Scene Reconstruction expert who will establish the speed at the time of impact based upon the property damage and site of inspection can be estimated and would obviously help to prove who was at fault.
