Speeding makes up about one-third of all crash fatalities. On any roadway, you should remain aware of your speed. Driving faster can be tempting, but speeding up by even a few miles per hour raises your odds of getting a police citation and being injured in an accident. 

Our Louisiana personal injury attorneys at Smiley Law Firm care about their clients. When you are harmed by another driver’s negligence, speak with a car accident attorney in Lafayette as soon as you can.

Speeding is a hazard drivers can face on any roadway, not just interstates. About 34% of all deadly speeding accidents take place on isolated rural roadways and crowded city streets.

Our Lafayette personal injury attorneys fully support our clients and strive to see that they gain maximum compensation for their losses.

It is not uncommon for drivers to be unaware of how fast they are going. Louisiana has a lot of famous tourist destinations and often hosts exhibitions that draw large crowds from other states and countries. Drivers from other places are unfamiliar with our traffic patterns. They are also less likely to obey driving laws than those who live here.
