Truck Driver Speeding
Injured by a Speeding Truck Driver?
Seek Financial Compensation With a Houston Personal Injury Attorney
Driving faster than the posted speed limit is dangerous, no matter the circumstances. Sharp turns, sudden stops, and safe maneuvering become more difficult the faster you are traveling. Commercial truck drivers, who are often operating vehicles that weight 20x that of a standard car, will face even more difficulty controlling them when speeding as a simple consequence of additional momentum.
A speeding tractor trailer can have devastating consequences on other motorists, but it does not stop truckers from accelerating beyond the speed limits. They might be late for an important delivery, or they could be trying to get home early after spending half a day behind the wheel. No matter their reasoning for putting everyone in danger with reckless driving, they are not excused. At The Cox Pradia Law Firm, P.L.L.C., our Houston truck accident attorneys have over 40 years of combined legal experience. They will tirelessly pursue justice in your name, holding those who hurt you liable for their carelessness.

Consequences of a Traffic Collision With a Speeding Truck
A speeding semi-truck going down the highway is just as dangerous as a rolling wrecking ball – they both weigh tons, are challenging to steer, and require near-impossible efforts to bring to a complete stop. Even a rear-end collision, which might cause minimal damage when smaller vehicles collide, could result in catastrophic injury or death when a speeding truck is involved.
If you have been in a collision with a tractor trailer, you might be facing the following consequences:
- Bodily harm
- Property damage
- Medical bills
- Repair costs
- Lost wages
- Emotional trauma
- Impaired movement
Focus on Recovering From Your Personal Injuries
No one deserves to be injured by a reckless truck driver, especially when the accident was not their fault. And yet, insurance providers may only offer coverage for actual damages, failing to provide you with all the financial support you need.
