Drivers must carefully adhere to all traffic laws, taking the necessary precautions to avoid thoughtless mistakes that could result in collisions. If drivers do not have the safety of others in mind, their reckless conduct may cost other motorists or pedestrians their health and well-being. Accidents caused by reckless drivers can leave victims facing serious financial difficulties, as they may require substantial medical care and time away from work during recovery.
If you or someone you love is facing difficult financial circumstances because of a careless driver’s dangerous behavior, we may be able to help with the process of filing a lawsuit to seek financial compensation.

Common Types of Reckless Driving
Reckless driving endangers not only the irresponsible motorists participating in this thoughtless behavior but also other motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians nearby. Some common forms of reckless driving include:
- Weaving between lanes of traffic
- Turning without a signal
- Taking corners or turns too fast
- Entering a lane of traffic without checking blind spots
- Reckless speeding
These kinds of dangerous behaviors may be grounds for legal action if the reckless driver injures anyone else. If successful, these lawsuits may be able to secure the injured individual compensation for a wide range of injury-related expenses.
An injury on the road could cost you and your household your financial stability. Medical bills, out-of-pocket expenses, and the loss of wages during recovery could seriously jeopardize your finances.
