Hit by a reckless driver?

Car accidents are always frightening, but they can be exponentially more so when you get into one with a reckless driver. When you are injured in a car accident by a reckless driver, they should be held liable for their actions.

In the United States, 94 percent of all car crashes are caused by human error, which includes reckless driving.

What is reckless driving?

Reckless driving, also called dangerous or careless driving is when some individual disregards the safety of themselves and other drivers while on the road. There are a number of driving maneuvers that are included under the reckless driving umbrella, such as:

  • Excessive speeding
  • Racing
  • Passing on the shoulder, illegally
  • Running stop signs, stoplights
  • Tailgating

This is not an exhaustive list, as an individual can be charged with reckless driving for an act not typically classified as “reckless.” For example, one could be considered reckless driving if they were intoxicated behind the wheel or if they were texting while driving. Each case is unique, so it may be wise to talk to a legal professional about filing a claim.

Do I have a case?

If you were hit and injured by a reckless driver, they should be held responsible. You may be able to file for a personal injury case, which allows you to pursue compensation for injuries you received in the crash.

Getting into a crash with a reckless driver is alarming, but knowing that you may be able to receive compensation for their actions can help give you some relief.
