Speeding anywhere is dangerous, and pushing a motor vehicle beyond the legally-allowed speed in Naples may put lives at risk. Naples allows those who seek a leisurely pace of life to fulfill that wish, and those who forego basic caution by driving their vehicle recklessly could end up striking another vehicle, pedestrian, bicyclist, golf cart driver, scooter rider, or another type of innocent party.
If you or a loved one suffered some type of harm, including a fatal or non-fatal injury, because of a speeding motorist, then you may be owed compensation.

Speeding Poses Danger to All on the Road
Those who are aware of traffic statistics understand that speeding motorists show a reckless lack of care for the safety of others, as well as themselves. People can die from an accident in which speeding was a determining factor.
When a motorist speeds, several conditions may take hold that could lead directly to your collision—and may have caused your accident.
Speeding Cuts Margin for Error
When a motorist’s vehicle is traveling at a high rate of speed, everything may become exaggerated. The risk of a vehicle pulling out in front of them becomes greater (as stopping is harder), every second that their eye is off the road becomes more consequential, and the margin for driver error generally becomes slimmer.
A motorist who speeds must be uber-careful in order to avoid an accident, but the reality is that a speeding motorist cannot always prevent an accident no matter how attentive they are.
Speeding Increases the Rate of Impact
The damage done in an accident with a vehicle going 20 miles per hour would be significantly less than a vehicle going 100 miles per hour.
The World Health Organization (WHO) explains that the speed of a vehicle influences both the likelihood that an accident will happen as well as the severity of injuries that may come from such an accident.
Speed May Be the Cause of Your Accident
Speeding motorists may fail to stop before striking your vehicle or may lose control of their vehicle in a way that causes an accident. Whatever the relationship between speeding and your accident is, the fact that a motorist sped and caused your accident could entitle you to collect awards for your covered losses.
A Naples speeding accident lawyer will help you take the next steps in pursuing any compensation that you deserve. Call the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine today at (239) 900-3000, as we will go the extra mile in fighting for compensation for you or a loved one.

Speeding Is a Form of Negligence
Any motorist who chooses to operate a motor vehicle in Naples accepts a duty to the community. As a consequence of their implicit duty, they must drive in a way that ensures the safety of others to the extent that they can control such things.
Avoiding speeding is a hallmark of safe driving. Alternatively, speeding represents a clear violation of the duty that any driver in Naples—or elsewhere—accepts when they choose to drive.
As they seek compensation for you or your loved one, a lawyer will aim to show that the motorist who caused your accident was negligent. They may do this by:
- Explaining in your case that every motorist who drives in Naples has a duty of care
- Explaining that speeding represents a breach of the motorist’s duty of care
- Establishing that a motorist’s speeding was the cause of your accident
- Showing that you or your loved one have suffered losses because of the motorist’s speeding
This four-step method is the general means by which any lawyer would prove negligence, and it may be key to you securing any compensation that your accident entitles you to.
Your Lawyer Will Fight for Fair Awards
A lawyer may be able to collect awards for you or a loved one through an insurance payout, a settlement resulting from a lawsuit, or a judgment from a lawsuit. The type of action that you bring (lawsuit or insurance claim) could impact the array of losses that you may be covered for.
A lawyer will speak with you about which type of case they believe is most appropriate based on your unique circumstances. Regardless of whether you ultimately bring a claim or lawsuit, your lawyer may:
- Hire an accident reconstruction expert
- Acquire evidence to use during negotiations or at trial
- Acquire documentation to support the existence of your losses
- Calculate your losses and determine which losses should be covered
- Handle all paperwork, appearances, and communications for a claim or lawsuit
- Fight for the compensation you deserve
- Defend your rights
You may consider hiring a lawyer the equivalent of putting your case for compensation in their hands. A lawyer’s value to you may come largely from them handling as much of your case or claim as possible, as you may have several pressing responsibilities to face right now.
