Distracted driving and drunk driving garner headlines as being leading causes of car accidents, but in Wisconsin, the number one cause of roadway accidents can be traced back to speeding. This problem is overlooked as a serious cause of accidents and yet, some drivers speed nearly every time they drive.
In 2020, there were 15,995 vehicle accidents attributed to speeding in the state, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. This resulted in 194 deaths. When speeding is suspected as being a factor, attorneys for both the victims and the defendants will collect and present evidence to build their case. In this post, we will take a look at some of the evidence sought.
Although witnesses and accident victims may believe speed was a factor in the accident based on their observations, car accident attorneys and investigators look for several pieces of evidence to determine if speed played a role in an accident. The attorneys at Eisenberg Law Offices will conduct their own investigation of the facts, by examining the following types of evidence:
Our car accident attorneys conduct thorough examinations of the evidence to build the strongest case possible for accident victims. This examination and presentation of evidence helps our clients obtain the full compensation to which they are due after an accident while allowing the victim the time and space they need to recover from their injuries.
Speeding is a pervasive problem in Wisconsin. It can happen in cities or rural areas, on highways or residential streets, and in all sorts of weather conditions. Victims of accidents in which speed was a factor, often do not have time to react and suffer the consequences of another’s actions without even an opportunity to protect themselves and through no fault of their own.
