Texas Speeding Lawyers

Thousands of individuals are hurt in high-speed car accidents each year. Despite the knowledge that speeding is dangerous, speed remains one of the leading causes of car accidents. Speeding not only increases the likelihood of crashing but also substantially furthers the risk for catastrophic injuries or death among victims.

Annually, 13,000 people die after sustaining catastrophic injuries in car accidents caused by speeding drivers. Often, those who survive live with debilitating injuries that require long-term medical care, assistance, and treatment.
