Experienced Nashville lawyer ready to fight for you
Too many drivers ignore speed limits and drive much too fast, creating a dangerous situation on the road. The result is often a crash that can leave people with serious injuries. If you were hurt in a car accident caused by a speeding driver, you deserve financial compensation, but the process of recovering compensation can be complicated.
The Law Office of Eric Beasley has been fighting for the injured in the Nashville area for more than 20 years. Former clients and fellow attorneys continue to refer car accident attorney Eric Beasley to others because of his straight talk and hard work that gets results. He has also been asked to speak about to other lawyers about his work in continuing education classes.
Holding negligent drivers accountable
Tennessee has laws regarding the speed limits all drivers must follow on public roads. Drivers on state highways or roads must not exceed 65 mph unless they are on a four-lane highway, in which case they must not drive over 70 mph. The law also states that municipalities and counties can set speed limits on certain streets and roads within their jurisdiction, but any speed limit posted cannot exceed 55 mph.
Speed limits are imposed for the safety of everyone on the road, and all drivers are required to travel at speeds at or below the posted limit. Drivers throughout Tennessee frequently choose to ignore speed limits, however, which often leads to accidents. Accidents brought about by excessive speed can result in devastating injuries or even death.
An injury from a speeding accident can impact your life significantly. You may need surgery, hospitalization, medication and physical therapy. You may not be able to work or take part in your usual activities. Your family can experience financial stress as medical expenses add up and there is less income coming in.
Negligent drivers often deny they were speeding or will try to put at least some of the blame on you. Insurance companies will try many tactics to pay you as little as possible. They may minimize your injuries or argue that they were pre-existing. They may offer you a settlement that falls far short of covering the damages you suffered.
