Whenever you get behind the wheel, you have an obligation to obey the law and follow safe driving practices. Of course, in a perfect world, other drivers would extend this same courtesy to you. Doing so ensures that your interactions with others on the road are safe ones. Sadly, we live in a far from perfect world. Roughly 90% of all car crashes result from human error—and from reckless driving in particular.
But, what reckless driving mean exactly? After all, you could reasonably call texting while driving “reckless.” But, we have another term for that as well: Reckless driving. So what falls under the umbrella of “reckless driving”?
Reckless driving describes a state of mind. When a person recklessly drives, he or she is demonstrating a blatant disregard for both the rules of the road and the safety of others. Reckless driving involves major offenses such as speeding, unsafe lane changes, tailgating, failure to signal, and much more. Of course, this is a much more serious charge than mere negligence. In fact, each state defines reckless driving in slightly different ways.
Truck Accident // Lumbar Injury
Truck Accident // Cervical Injury
Commercial Case // Lumbar Injury
Acts of reckless driving are responsible for over 33% of all car accident fatalities. This translates into roughly 13,000 deaths annually.
Not only does reckless driving increase the chances of an accident occurring, but it also makes it much more likely for the participants involved to sustain injuries in a collision. Specific types of reckless driving may include:
Of course, these examples represent only three types of accidents that are related to reckless driving. Other forms of motor vehicle collisions that may result from acts of reckless driving include:

First things first, whenever you are involved in a car collision of any kind, you must contact the police and seek medical attention immediately. If you do not take these actions, it may affect your potential settlement in the long run. Therefore, always ensure that this gets done ASAP. If you do plan on opening a claim, make sure that you abide by your state’s statute of limitations. Many states require that you pursue your case within 2 years of the date of the accident. Failure to do so within this timeframe may invalidate your claim.
If you are not injured, it is always a good idea to collect as much evidence as possible while at the scene of the accident. For one, the police who arrive at the scene will write up a police report. You should definitely ask for a copy of this document. This account of events will prove to be a valuable resource later on as you pursue your claim. Additionally, try to obtain the contact information of all those involved, including witnesses to the incident. Also, if your smartphone was not damaged in the accident, take advantage of your camera by snapping photos of all property damage, injuries, and the general location of the scene.
And, of course, if you wish to pursue legal action, get in touch with your insurance company as well as a team of experienced attorneys. When talking to your insurance company about the accident, be sure to recount the details of the event with the utmost honesty. If you give false or incorrect information, your insurance company may not cover some of the damages that resulted from your accident.
Even in cases where you walk away unscathed, car accidents are life-changing. Many people only have one mode of transportation. Having that suddenly taken away from you is a big shock. This only compounds the fact that you now have to contend simultaneously with complicated legal nuances and varying degrees of financial damages. An experienced team of attorneys will be able to lighten the load on you tremendously as you pursue your case.
But again, the key here is experience. Not everyone has it. And, even some who do have it, don’t bear great track records.The Ward Law Group not only has nearly a decade of experience serving clients, but they have also recovered millions of dollars in damages over the years for their clients. And don’t forget, if you speak Spanish, that’s not a problem. We proudly serve both the English- and Spanish-speaking communities.
