Trusted Omaha attorneys fight for victims' rights
Speeding is one of the most common causes of car accidents in Nebraska. Drivers often think that the rules of the road simply don't apply to them, or selfishly make choices while driving that cause accidents. Racing to beat a red light, not stopping at intersections, cutting off other drivers and failing to obey posted speed limits are all negligent behaviors that result in serious accidents.

Speeding is a dangerous act of negligence
Speeding drivers put all drivers and passengers around them at risk of serious injury. An operator caught speeding can be pulled over, ticketed and fined. But what many people might not realize is that speeding drivers also face legal consequences if their actions result in a car accident. Speeding has several common causes, and these accidents are entirely preventable:
- Road rage
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Traveling too fast in inclement weather and dangerous roads
- Lack of surveillance cameras at intersections
Speeding can kill, and often does. If you've been injured by an irresponsible, speeding driver, then you know that the recovery process is not easy.
Injuries from speeding accidents can be severe
Whiplash (neck injury) and concussions (head injury) are two of the most common injuries that come to mind when we think of car accidents. Adding speed to the mix often results in much more serious injuries or even fatalities. This only adds to the financial and physical impact of an accident. Other injuries commonly associated with speeding car accidents include:
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Permanent nerve damage
- Mental trauma and PTSD
- Chronic pain from injury-related accidents
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Internal bleeding
