New Orleans Car Accident Lawyers Helping Speeding Accident Victims Obtain Justice
Speeding is one of the most dangerous behaviors any driver engages in. Unfortunately, all too often, speeding drivers don’t just put themselves at risk – they endanger others on the road as well. A driver who is speeding has a higher chance of causing a motor vehicle collision, and any crash that does occur is likely to result in serious or even fatal injuries.
At Bloom Legal, victims of speeding accidents are represented by experienced New Orleans car accident lawyers who are committed to ensuring speeding drivers are held responsible for their actions. If a driver chooses to drive above the speed limit and causes an accident, that motorist can and should be liable for any losses experienced by victims or their loved ones. Our firm will fight aggressively for victims to be fully and fairly compensated for both economic losses related to vehicular repairs, medical bills and lost wages, as well as damages related to the wrongful death of a loved one.
What Are the Consequences of Speeding?
Speeding can make it more likely for a driver to lose control of their vehicle. When a driver exceeds the allotted speed limit in an area, they have a higher chance of crashing into another vehicle, having their own vehicle roll over or colliding with a dangerous object. Because speeding drivers also have more momentum, it is harder for them to brake in time before hitting a pedestrian, bicyclist or motorcyclist.
Unfortunately, not only is a driver who is going too fast more likely to cause a crash, but the added momentum from the vehicle’s high speed increases the force and impact of the resulting accident. When a car accident victim’s body absorbs more force, serious or even fatal injuries are far more likely to happen.
Do You Have a Right to Compensation in New Orleans Following a Collision With a Speeding Driver?
If a driver is speeding in New Orleans, that driver is violating the rules of the road. The negligent motorist may be held accountable for this violation, especially if it caused someone to incur personal injuries.
If you can prove that your auto accident was the result of a motorist speeding, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. Losses can include compensation for pain you endure, emotional distress, medical costs, lost wages, and any other damages considered compensable. If the accident was fatal, as a surviving family member, you may also be eligible to pursue a claim for wrongful death damages.
Compensation may be obtained through a settlement or by going to civil court, and Bloom Legal can help in either circumstance.

I contacted Bloom Legal out of the blue with a strange question for a fiction series I’m writing that takes place in New Orleans. Being from Maryland I was in the dark and needed assistance and they jumped at the chance to help me (they were the only law firm that responded to my e-mail). His team worked quickly and carefully to find the information I needed. Because of the help they provided it changed a large aspect of my novel and for that I am very grateful.
