There is a myriad of reasons why people cause car collisions, whether they operate a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or decide to go over the speed limit. However, many other factors can play a role in the likelihood of a motor vehicle collision occurring. For example, someone who is driving over the speed limit because they are worried about missing a flight may pose a significant hazard to their own safety and the well-being of other drivers.
Unfortunately, many accidents have been caused by those who were trying to catch a flight (or take care of some other important responsibility). These accidents can be especially devastating because they often involve high speeds and frantic driving. For example, those who are trying to drive while thinking about their flight may lose their mental focus, and they may take their hands off of the wheel to check the status of a flight or use their phone for some other purpose.
Sometimes, these accidents involve entire families, and the risk of something going wrong may be even higher when drivers are tired. Often, people become tired while they are on a trip, especially if they have had to spend a lot of time in the air or behind the wheel. Moreover, some people have difficulty sleeping right before a flight because they are worried about missing their flight.
If you were struck by a driver who was going over the speed limit for any reason, you may want to file a lawsuit, and you should do everything in your power to recover from the wreck.
