Speeding is one of the most dangerous actions drivers can do. In fact, speeding is the violation that is responsible for the most fatal car accidents—however, the majority of drivers believe that speeding is less dangerous than driving under the influence of alcohol or distracted driving. A recent survey revealed other disturbing finds about how drivers perceive the behavior of speeding, including:

  • The survey showed that 9 out of 10 drivers admit to speeding even though 82% say it’s dangerous and 35% believe it’s never acceptable.
  • Many drivers mistakenly believe that speeding is okay when the roads are empty. In reality, 52% of fatal crashes due to speeding are the result of hitting an object, not another car.
  • Most drivers overlook the expense related to speeding as well. The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration estimates that speeding accidents cost Americans 40.4 billion each year, and result in insurance rate hikes that average $1,177 over three years.

What to Do if Injured in a Speeding Accident

Part of the reason that accidents caused by speeding are so damaging is that the faster the speed, the less control the driver has, and the longer it takes to stop the car. If you or a loved one have been hurt in an accident caused by speeding, chances are you are suffering with serious injuries.

I sat down and met with Jelena Tiemann about my vehicle accident.I presented all of my documentation to her in which she gave me her assessment.Although the Tiemann Law Firm wont be representing me because my settlement offer was pretty good she was very clear,forward and professional about what she felt could and couldn't be done.I recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a helping hand at fighting a case where you don't have to worry about the outcome not going in your favor. Please don't review this business if you received a freebie for writing this review, or if you're connected in any way to the owner or employees.

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.
