What is Reckless Driving?
Reckless driving is defined as driving a vehicle with deliberate or unjustifiable disregard for the safety of others. Speeding, passing dangerously, ignoring traffic signs, drunk driving, and texting while driving can all be considered reckless driving. In Texas, reckless driving also includes fleeing a police officer, and racing on a highway. Sometimes referred to as aggressive driving, reckless driving causes 3 million injuries and 40,000 fatalities each year. Roughly 40 percent of car accident deaths are the result of drunk driving, 30 percent are the result of speeding, and the rest are attributed to other forms of reckless driving. Young people are most likely to drive recklessly, and auto accidents are the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 34.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a reckless driving accident, call Trevino Injury Law immediately at (210) 255-3088.

Reckless Driving Laws
Unlike careless driving, which is considered a minor moving violation, reckless driving is a criminal offense. Reckless drivers can be punished with fines, suspended licenses, and even jail time. When death or injury occurs, reckless driving can increase from a misdemeanor to a felony. Yet even if a driver is punished to the full extent of the law, the victims may not see justice for property damage, personal injury, or death of a loved one.
To bring a claim against a reckless driver, you may not have to prove that their actions were deliberate, only that they engaged in dangerous behavior. If you are partially to blame for the collision through contributing negligence or otherwise, it may affect the outcome of your claim. It does not mean that you should not seek compensation. Contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible to receive the compensation you deserve.
