High Speed Accidents

Portland Area Attorneys Will Pursue Your Case

Speed limits are posted in and around Portland to keep drivers, pedestrians, motorcyclists, and cyclists safe. However, some drivers do not feel that obeying the posted speed limit is a priority. Aggressive drivers and those who are in a hurry tend to be the culprits. Speeding drivers always put themselves and others at risk and, in many cases, are unable to stop or slow down to avoid a crash.

Our attorneys have decades of experience dealing with auto accidents caused by speeding. We will launch an investigation, obtain photos, speak to witnesses, and use details from the police report to build a strong case. Contact need Zbinden & Curtis, Attorneys at Law, today.

Why speeding is dangerous

Numerous types of car accidents can be caused by speeding. Due to the sheer speed of the vehicle involved, the damage can be catastrophic. High-speed crashes usually include:

  • Rear-end accidents – A speeding motorist crashing into the back of another vehicle can cause severe damage. Rear-end accidents usually result in whiplash or spinal injuries to the victim.
  • Head-on collisions – When two vehicles traveling in opposite directions collide, the damage can be catastrophic. And the higher the speed traveled, the more severe a head-on collision can be.
  • T-bone accidents – A speeding driver that is unable to stop at a traffic light or stop sign can end up driving into the side of another vehicle and being broadsided. These types of crashes are called “T-bone” accidents because one vehicle crashing into the side of another forms a T.
  • Crashing into stationary objects – Drivers who lose control of their vehicle or are unable to slow down can end up driving off the road and crashing into poles, parked cars, or buildings.
  • Winter weather accidents – A motorist who speeds during slippery road conditions are often unable to come to a stop – resulting in a car wreck.

If a speeding driver caused your injury, we can pursue justice. You should not have to suffer because of someone else’s erratic behavior. You need Zbinden & Curtis, Attorneys at Law, on your side.

If another motorist caused an accident because they were driving above the posted speed limit, there is no dispute that they are at fault.
