Speeding into oncoming traffic and passing vehicles while swerving around traffic on a curve may be a description you'd expect of reckless driving, but not of a law enforcement pursuit. Recent videos of last week's high-speed chase renews questions about how fast is too fast is too fast for a law enforcement pursuit. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are 360 people killed each year from high speed chases. Many of those injured or killed were not involved with the case, but were in the path of an officer who faild to follow the proper safety procedures around high speed chases. If you were injured or some one you love was killed during a law enforcement pursuit, contact the Clore Law Group today to discuss your possible case with an experienced attorney.
