Reckless Driving Accidents in California

When another person’s reckless driving causes a car accident and injuries occur, the victims are entitled to file a personal injury lawsuit against the suspect in civil court—whether or not the driver was charged and convicted of the crime.

If you have been injured in a reckless driving accident in Northern or Southern California, let Torem & Associates help you recover your entitled compensation by holding the negligent party liable for their criminal actions. For over 35 years, we have helped our clients maximize their settlements by providing them with knowledgeable and personalized legal solutions without any upfront costs.

Common Causes of Reckless Driving

All licensed motorists have a legal obligation to exercise reasonable care and follow the traffic laws whenever they drive on the roadways. When a person drives in a reckless and negligent manner, resulting in a collision and injuries, not only can he/she be held liable for the crash but also charged with a crime.

Reckless driving is a common cause of car accidents in the United States since it always involves dangerous driving maneuvers and high speeds. In fact, speeding alone is a significant contributing factor to approximately one-third of all collision deaths in the country.

The following are the common causes of reckless driving:

  • Speeding or traveling too fast for conditions
  • Tailgating or driving too closely to the vehicle in front
  • Ignoring traffic signals and signs
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Forgetting to signal when turning or changing lanes
  • Failing to yield the right-of-way
  • Sudden braking
  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving

Each one of these behaviors poses a serious risk to other people’s safety. Due to the dangers of reckless driving, it is considered a crime in California.

According to state traffic law, reckless driving makes it a crime to operate a motor vehicle in careless and wanton disregard for other people’s safety or property. It is a misdemeanor offense, punishable by a maximum 90-day sentence in county jail and fines worth thousands of dollars. However, in the event of the injury, the penalties increase.
