When You've Been Hit By A Speeding Driver

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation sets speed limits according to the surface conditions and design of the road and highway. Any amount of speed over the posted limit is a violation of the law. If a driver causes an accident in which it is determined that recklessness or excessive speed contributed to the cause or extent of injuries, his or her insurance company is liable for compensating the injured parties.

I am personal injury attorney Edward Shaughnessy. I have been driving interstates, highways and roads in the Lehigh Valley my entire adult life. I know the road conditions and the legal issues that result in driver liability in car accident cases. If you were injured or lost a loved one because of a speeding or reckless driver in the Pennsylvania or New Jersey, Lehigh Valley region, talk to me before you talk to an insurance adjuster. I will investigate the accident and help you understand your legal options for recovering the full and fair amount of financial compensation you are entitled to receive.

The Speeding Driver Didn't Have Required Insurance?

Speeding and reckless drivers are often irresponsible in other ways, as well. It's reported that nearly 10 percent of all drivers in Pennsylvania and New Jersey don't carry required auto insurance. Unfortunately, insurance companies don't like paying damages to their own policyholders who file a claim against their uninsured motorist (UM) coverage. I will help you fight for the maximum compensation you to which you are entitled.
