When motorists choose to race illegally on the street, they not only endanger their own lives, but also the lives of everyone around them as they maneuver through traffic at high speeds. Statistics report an average of 135 deaths per year in the United States from illegal street racing – all of which could have been avoided if the drivers involved chose not to race.
If you or a loved one has been a victim of a negligent driver participating in street racing, you may be eligible for financial compensation to pay for lost wages, medical bills, and other accident-related expenses. Don’t let reckless drivers get away without paying for their dangerous actions.

Street Racing Dangers
Whether a driver is experienced or a novice, street racing can be extremely dangerous. Cars participating in street racing typically reach speeds close to 100 miles per hour, shortening reaction times while also increasing a driver’s risk of losing control of his or her vehicle. These vehicles are also typically not built to handle collisions at such high speeds. Seat belts could break and the vehicle’s frame may not be strong enough to handle the force of a collision.
