Reckless Driving Dangers
When a driver gets behind the wheel, he is expected to drive carefully for his own safety, and for the safety of others around him. However, some motorists disregard cautions and warnings, and in so doing they become a threat to those on the road with them. These reckless driving behaviors can dramatically increase the risk of motor vehicle accidents.
If you have been injured in a car accident caused by the reckless driving of another person, you may be able to pursue financial compensation beyond that which is available through an insurance claim.

Examples Reckless Driving
Reckless driving encompasses a considerable variety of unsafe driving actions and behaviors, and if you observe another motorist operating a vehicle in a hazardous manner, you should take measures to avoid them. Any of the following behaviors can be classified as reckless:
- Racing and speeding through streets
- Drifting into different lanes
- Tailgating (following too closely)
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Running stop signs or lights
Persons in accidents caused by reckless drivers should not have to bear the financial burdens associated with a crash, and a successful civil lawsuit can help to lessen some of this strain.
