Iowa Excessive Speed Lawyers
According to the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, excessive speed plays a part in about a third of all fatal car accidents. Whether the speed violates the legal limit, or is simply too fast for the situation, excessive speed can make any accident much more dangerous. This is true for passenger vehicles as well as commercial vehicles like buses. However, due to the size and weight of a bus as compared to a passenger car, the damage created by a speeding bus driver can be far worse.
A single bus accident can affect a large number of people. High speeds only amplify the effects of these accidents. If you or someone you love has been injured in a bus accident and you believe that excessive speed contributed to the accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Please contact the Iowa excessive speed lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., by calling 877-327-2600 for more information on seeking justice as a bus accident victim.
Dangers of Driving Too Fast
A bus driving at a high speed simply will not be able to stop as quickly as it needs to in order to avoid an accident. And if high speeds require a driver to slam on the brakes, passengers could be sent flying from their seats with dangerous force. Even if an accident is avoided, excessive speed can contribute to serious injury. Speeding can be a factor in the following dangerous situations:
- Losing control of a vehicle
- Tire blowouts
- Improper lane changes
- Inability to avoid an accident
Buses, which already have limited maneuverability, are further hampered in their ability to avoid an accident if they are travelling at an excessive speed.
