When drivers take to the road, they are expected to drive and act responsibly behind the wheel in order to avoid a devastating accident. Unfortunately, not every motorist makes an effort to drive safely and courteously. Reckless driving is one of the most common causes of motor vehicle accidents and when motorists act recklessly, they are putting innocent lives at risk.
If you have been involved in a car accident that was caused by another party’s reckless driving behaviors, you may be entitled to seek financial compensation through a civil lawsuit. Contact the Delaware car accident lawyers of Morris James, LLP, to schedule a free initial consultation.
Reckless Driving Actions
There are many different actions that could be considered reckless driving. When a driver drives recklessly, he or she is typically breaking the law and putting lives in jeopardy. Some examples of reckless driving include:
- Excessive speeding
- Failure to stop at stop signs or traffic signals
- Following too closely behind another vehicle
- Changing lanes erratically and without signaling the intent to do so
- Driving while distracted
- Using a cell phone to talk or text while driving
These are only a few actions that could be considered reckless driving. When people choose to drive recklessly, they are needlessly increasing the risk of an accident and should be held accountable for the consequences of this decision.
