Ogden Speeding Accident Attorneys
Proving the Other Driver Was Illegally Speeding
Some of the worst car accidents are caused by drivers who are speeding well beyond the posted speed limits. The faster a car is traveling, the more force it will carry in the event of a crash, and the more damage it will do to others.
If you were recently hit by a driver who was speeding, and they say they weren’t, Lowe Law Group and our Ogden speeding accident lawyers can help you prove your case. We are highly experienced in car accident claims and lawsuits filed on behalf of plaintiffs, including those involving reckless drivers who cause a crash and then deny it. Using our collective legal experiences and eclectic backgrounds, we know where to look for useful evidence that shows you were not to blame for the accident.

Evidence That Shows the Other Car Was Speeding
It would be a surprise if the driver who crashed into you admitted that they were speeding. Most drivers will never say this because they know it is illegal and that it will likely make them fully liable for the crash. If you want to prove that they were speeding, then you will need to be prepared with convincing evidence, which is where we come in.
Our attorneys can look for the following types of evidence of speeding:
- Camera footage: Do you have dashcam footage of your crash? Or maybe a traffic cam or security camera caught the accident? Video footage is difficult to refute, and it can show in great detail just how quickly the other driver was traveling.
- Eyewitness statements: Other drivers and nearby pedestrians might have seen – or heard – the accident. They could attest that the other driver was speeding because they saw the car flying down the street or heard it slam on the brakes just before impact.
- Tire tracks: Photographic evidence from the scene of your crash can prove that the other driver was speeding if there are tire tracks leading to the point of collision. Cars traveling at high speeds that suddenly brake will wear down the tires, leaving distinctive black tracks on the asphalt. We can see if those tracks match up to the tire treads of the other driver’s vehicle.
- Police reports: Information collected by responding police officers also routinely proves useful for speeding accident claims. We can see about getting a copy of police crash reports soon after your case begins.
Does Speeding Always Increase Liability?
Posted speed limits are carefully calculated to keep drivers safe. Someone who exceeds the speed limit is inherently making the road more dangerous.
Speed limits are set based on the:
- Road’s width, lanes, and curvature
- Expected traffic conditions
- Number of nearby intersections
- Usual weather patterns in the area
Because speed limits are designed specifically for optimal safe driving, exceeding those limits can be seen as automatically reckless. In other words, a speeding driver could increase their liability just by the act of speeding, but it will take an experienced attorney to prove it to an insurance adjuster or court.
