Texas Car Accident Claim: The Dangers of Speeding

When injuries caused by a Houston car accident leave you with mounting medical bills and force you to take time off from work, you should consider filing a car accident claim rather than relying on insurance companies to do the right thing and provide fair compensation. For help with a claim, you should consult with a Houston personal injury lawyer.

Car Accident Claim: Speeding Fatalities

A common cause of car accidents is speeding, which is defined as driving faster than posted speed limits or driving too fast for current conditions. Below are statistics on 2009 Texas speeding fatalities gathered from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration: 
  • 106 fatalities on an interstate with the speed limit more than 55 mph;
  • 37 fatalities on an interstate with the speed limit at or less than 55 mph;
  • 149 fatalities on a road with the speed limit of 55 mph;
  • 40 fatalities on a road with the speed limit of 50 mph;
  • 116 fatalities on a road with the speed limit of 45 mph;
