Car Accident Due to a Reckless Driver


When driver negligence crosses over into recklessness, the danger increases considerably. Driver negligence plays a critical role in the majority of car accidents, and when that negligence reaches the level of recklessness, the risk that the accident will be fatal is far greater. If you have been injured in a car accident that was caused by a reckless driver, 388CEDA offers wide-ranging medical services that may be of help to you, and we can also provide you with a recommendation for an experienced car accident attorney if you request that we do so.


Reckless Driving Can Take Many Forms

Reckless driving refers to driving that recklessly disregards the safety of others on the road, and it can take many different forms, including:

  • Drivers who speed with wild abandon are reckless drivers. Speed plays a critical role in some of the deadliest accidents out there, and when drivers speed with no concern for others, they qualify as reckless drivers.
  • Motorists who take death-defying risks on the road are also reckless drivers. For example, passing on hills and while going around curves amounts to playing Russian Roulette and is a form of dangerously reckless driving.
  • Other forms of reckless driving include racing on public roads, overtaking emergency vehicles that are in emergency mode, failing to comply with the warning signs and instructions displayed on construction vehicles, passing school buses that have their stop signs out, and much more.

Aggressive driving is a form of reckless driving, and the terms are often used interchangeably. While a reckless driver may not be taking his or her aggressions out behind the wheel, he or she isn’t concerned with the safety of others on the road, which makes reckless driving on a par with aggressive driving.

Your Car Accident Claim

In order to obtain compensation for the damages you’ve suffered, you’ll need to turn to the insurance company of the reckless driver who caused you to be injured. Yes, the insurance company is paid to cover the damages you’ve sustained as a result of their client’s recklessness, but this does not mean that the insurance company is going to make this easy for you.

The insurance company is motivated by profits, and to help ensure that it keeps its profit margins high, it may stoop to some pretty low tactics, including:

  • Denying accident claims like yours outright
  • Making early but inadequate settlement offers (that fail to address claimants’ full damages)
  • Making the claims process especially cumbersome
  • Shifting blame away from reckless drivers and toward claimants
  • Downplaying the damages suffered by claimants

Insurance companies are skilled at these practices, and this is the reason many claimants turn to experienced car accident attorneys to skillfully advocate for their claims’ most favorable resolutions.

The Damages You Face

The damages you face after being injured in an accident that was caused by a reckless driver can be immense, including:

  • Medical Expenses – Your medical expenses will be unique to your situation, but they can include emergency treatment and transportation, surgery, hospitalization, rehabilitation, physical therapy, prescription medications, home health care, adaptive physical devices, and much more.
  • Lost Wages – With serious injuries, come hours lost on the job and an attendant loss of earnings. If your injuries are serious, you could also be looking at a decrease in your earning potential.
  • Pain and Suffering – It’s important not to ignore the physical and emotional suffering that you experience as a result of the at-fault driver’s recklessness. These can pose a serious challenge that is exceptionally difficult to overcome.
