Santa Ana Speeding Accident Lawyers

If you or a loved one was injured in a car accident due to another driver’s speeding or other reckless driving, you could be entitled to compensation for the damages linked to your injuries. To collect what you are entitled to, you’ll generally have to file a claim against the insurance company of the driver at fault for the accident. Insurance companies work for profit, not for you. If you don’t have the evidence to prove the fault of the other driver and your full damages, your claim could be denied, or you and your family could receive less than you are entitled to. 

Working with a local Santa Ana car accident attorney helps to ensure that your claim is effectively built and that you are awarded the amount you need to cover your damages. 

California Speeding and Reckless Driving Laws 

As explained through CA Statute 23103(a), “A person who drives a vehicle upon a highway in willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property is guilty of reckless driving.” When a person is found guilty of reckless driving, by statute “they shall be punished by”: 

  • Imprisonment in a county jail for no less than 5 or more than 90 days, or
  • A fine of no less than $145 and no more than $1,000,o
  • The fine and imprisonment except under certain other statutes 

When a driver engages in actions on the road that violate the law, they are considered to be liable for the accidents that they cause. If a driver is engaging in aggressive driving, speeding, distracted driving, drowsy driving, illegal lane changes, and other traffic law violations, they will generally be responsible for any damages that result from accidents that their driving causes.

If you have been injured in an accident, you might not know where to begin to gather evidence to prove the fault of the other driver. Additionally, you might not know that you are entitled not only to your short-term medical bills and any loss in wages during your immediate recovery but also to long-term costs. These include the cost of long-term medical and mental health bills, as well as reduced earnings potential linked to your accident.
