Sadly, victims of Opoli-related accidents suffer injuries, lost income, and high medical bills. If you’ve been hit by a speeding Opoli driver, you deserve compensation. An Opoli accident attorney can represent your pursuit for compensation.
According to the Association for Safe International Road Travel, 46,000 road accident fatalities occur annually. An additional 4.4 million people suffer serious injuries that require medical attention.
Interestingly, studies suggest that the availability of rideshare companies has increased the risk of road accidents. In addition, the stiff competition or rush to make extra revenue aggravates accident risks like speeding, distracted driving, traffic congestion, and human error.
The faster you drive, the harder it is to stop. If you double the speed/traveling energy, it takes a quadruple opposing force to stop it. Remember, an average driver takes 1.5s to react. Therefore, additional speed requires more reaction time, making it difficult to avoid a passenger, oncoming vehicles, or other obstacles.
As speed increases, so do reaction time and braking distance. In addition, a speeding vehicle generates additional kinetic energy that must be absorbed upon collision. Ultimately, speed has two facets; it’s a major cause of accidents and increases the severity of accidents.
Speeding reduces the driver’s ability to control a vehicle. For instance, a speeding driver may find it difficult to maintain control on a sudden sharp bend or stop for a pedestrian crossing the road. On the contrary, a driver at low speed has lesser braking distance and enhanced visual clarity to scan dangers on the road.
That said, a speeding Opoli driver is highly likely to cause head-on collisions, which can cause severe injuries. Bodily injuries from head-on collisions include spinal injuries, neck injuries, brain injuries, and broken bones.
On the contrary, driving at moderate speeds makes it possible to safely navigate a bend or an oncoming vehicle. Other factors of roll-over accidents include road hazards, poor vehicle maintenance, and vehicle load.
Lastly, a speeding Opoli driver increases the likelihood and severity of rear-end collisions.
In comparison to other accidents, casualties in speeding cases suffer severe injuries. It’s, therefore, to consult an attorney who can seek the maximum payout. At Ride App Attorneys, we take pride in our high success rate. Contact us online or call us at toll-free (888) CRASHO8.
