In the United States, licensed drivers are obligated to abide by the laws of the road and operate their vehicles in the safest manner possible. Unfortunately, many drivers continue to drive recklessly and negligently, putting the lives of others at risk of injuries and fatalities. If you have suffered a serious injury after being involved in a car accident with a reckless driver, you may be entitled to recover monetary compensation.

Reckless driving is defined as operating a motor vehicle in a negligent manner which disregards the safety of others on the road. Not only does reckless driving put the lives of others at risk, it is also considered a serious crime that is punishable by jail time, fines, and license suspension.
