Virginia Speeding Accident Attorneys
When you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident caused by another driver who was clearly speeding, you can be both frustrated and confused about what can be done to help you get justice. You should know that you could be entitled to compensation for all damages you have incurred or will incur because of the crash, and CHASENBOSCOLO will help you get it.
A little less than half of speed-related fatalities were multiple-vehicle collisions, and the sad truth of speeding violations is that drivers place many other people at risk. When driving too fast, one simply does not have the ability to come to a sudden stop. These reckless drivers are far more likely to cause crashes.
If you suffered severe injuries, or your loved one was killed, in a car accident caused by another driver speeding in Virginia, you need the help of a skilled personal injury lawyer with your case. CHASENBOSCOLO can offer the experience and dedication that you are seeking.
Our firm has handled scores of motor vehicle accident cases and knows how to prove that another driver was operating in violation of posted speed limits. Call (703) 538-1138, or contact us online, to receive a free consultation.
Do I Need A Speeding Accident Lawyer?
Speeding is obviously a cause of many serious traffic accidents, but it is not the easiest offense to prove. Remember that the insurance company for the other driver is very likely to argue that there was another reason your accident happened.
One way an insurer might do this is by using your own words against you, which is exactly why you should avoid saying anything to an insurance agent until you have sound legal representation. Never agree to provide any kind of recorded statement, no matter how harmless an agent might make it seem.
The insurance company is only going to be committed to paying as little as possible to resolve your claim, but an attorney is actually going to have a vested interest in your recovery. In addition to fighting to help you recover everything to which you are entitled, a lawyer can also help ensure that you are receive all the medical treatment you need. They may also be able to obtain a medical lien if you find that you are having difficulty affording your medical care.
Some insurance companies might offer you a lump sum settlement to resolve your case, telling you how you will be able to keep more money for yourself. Do not be fooled. An attorney will be able to negotiate a much more just settlement to your case, and they can file a lawsuit if an insurer proves unwilling to provide appropriate compensation.

Types of Speeding Cases We Handle
Speeding is only one of multiple actions a negligent driver might commit to causing a motor vehicle accident. The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) reported that there were an astounding 25,892 speed-related crashes in the state in 2018. While over 4,000 of these involved speeding, it is sobering to learn that almost 7,000 other crashes also involved drivers following too closely – what is commonly known as “tailgating.”
Speeding accidents could cause severe injury collisions including:
- Rear-end collisions
- Broadside or “T-bone” collisions
- Sideswipe crashes
- Head-on collisions
Those involved in crashes could suffer severe injuries, including:
- Neck injuries, including whiplash
- Brain injuries including concussions and other traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Broken and fractured bones
- Back and spine injuries, including severe damage to the spinal cord
- Cuts, lacerations, and scrapes
- Internal organ injuries
Speeding drivers can be any age, with the great majority of offenders falling between 21 and 25 years old. If you or your loved one was injured by a speeding driver, we will fight for you no matter what the age of the negligent driver was.
One of the most valuable things that you can do after being involved in a speeding accident is to take as many pictures as you can of everything involved in the scene of your crash. Take photographs from different angles and distances, as pictures will preserve key evidence that may otherwise disappear quickly and be lost forever.
