Tennessee Speeding-Related Accidents
When drivers exceed the speed limit, they are at greater risk of suffering serious injuries in the event of a crash. Each year, thousands of Americans are killed in high-speed collisions, with a total of 9,378 people dying in 2018 alone. That year, an average of 25 people were killed daily by speeding drivers. Over the past twenty years, speeding has been a factor in roughly one-third of reported traffic fatalities in the United States.
If you have been injured in a Tennessee car crash, you have the right to pursue a negligence claim for your injuries. Anyone who gets behind the wheel has to exercise reasonable care to obey the traffic laws of the State of Tennessee. Failure to do so may constitute negligence and give rise to a claim for lost damages for the injured party. The personal injury claim is a long and confusing process for those with little experience in the law, but you do not have to do it alone.
