Illinois Auto Accident Lawyers

Speeding is one of the most common traffic offenses, but it can frequently lead to accidents. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, speeding was a contributing factor in 31% of all fatal crashes in 2008 and 11,764 lives were lost in 2008 due to speeding-related crashes. When a motor vehicle accident occurs as the result of speeding, the negligent driver can and should be held accountable for the damages, injuries or deaths that were caused as a result. The skilled Chicago speeding accident attorneys at Ankin Law Offices, LLC have significant experience representing victims of motor vehicle accidents, including those caused by speeding.

The state of Illinois takes speeding offenses and accidents caused by speeding very seriously. In fact, a new Illinois speeding law provides that driving 30 to 39 mph over the posted speed limit qualifies as “excessive speeding,” with penalties of up to $1500 and even possible jail time.


Speeding can cause a number of dangerous conditions, such as:

  • Difficulty reacting to and maneuvering around obstacles in the roadway, including other vehicles and objects
  • Reduced reaction time
  • Loss of control of vehicle
  • Inability to make a safe turns or lane changes
  • Inability to stop quickly
