According to statistics compiled by the New York State Department of Motor
Vehicles (DMV), speeding is the cause of roughly 30,000 traffic accidents
in New York each year. Not only does speeding cause accidents, but it
can also make collisions far worse when they do happen. The speed of a
vehicle is directly related to the force it carries at impact, exposing
involved parties to a greater risk of injury. Speed limits are not arbitrary
and are in place for a purpose, which is why you deserve just compensation
if involved in an accident caused by a speeding vehicle.
If you have been injured in a
car accident caused by a driver who was speeding, you may be entitled to recover monetary
compensation for your losses. At Lurie, Ilchert, MacDonnell & Ryan
LLP, our New York City car accident lawyers can provide the powerful advocacy
you need to maximize your chances of securing the financial recovery you
deserve. Having recovered more than $500 million in verdicts and settlements
on behalf of injured clients, we have what it takes to help you get the
results you deserve.

The Effect of Speed on Motor Vehicle Accidents
While most of the local roadways in New York City have a posted speed limit
of 30 miles per hour, cab drivers, local drivers, and truck drivers may
sometimes ignore this limit in order to get to their destination more
quickly. When a driver speeds, they reduce their ability to make quick
decisions or react appropriately to hazards on the road. High-speed collisions
typically result in much greater injury to those involved, including whiplash,
broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage, lacerations,
and sometimes death.
Our attorneys can help you pursue compensation for the following:
- Vehicle repair costs
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitation costs
- Lost wages
Through an examination of the details surrounding your crash and negotiations
with the involved insurance companies, our team of advocates are prepared
to zealously defend your interests and advocate for every penny of your
entitled compensation. Protecting your wellbeing is our top priority,
and we are willing to do everything we can to help you get through this
difficult time as smoothly as possible.
