Were you seriously injured in a crash that was caused by a reckless driver? Let The Florida Law Group fight for justice for you!
Reckless driving is illegal. You have the right to pursue maximum compensation for your injuries, but you need experienced Lakeland personal injury attorneys on your side to give you the best chance at recovering full damages.
While Florida does not have the highest rate of reckless driving in the nation, it is still a real and present danger to anyone on the roads, especially as evidence suggests an increase in this kind of behavior during the COVID-19 pandemic across the U.S. and in the Greater Tampa Bay area (near Lakeland) specifically. Florida law (Title XXIII, Chapter 316) defines reckless driving as “driving any vehicle in willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property”. The law makes reckless driving a broad umbrella that can include speeding, racing, road rage, driving under the influence, tailgating, and more. It is important to make the distinction that “bad driving” and “reckless driving” are not the same thing, as there has to be an intentional infraction committed for reckless driving to be applied. Reckless drivers can seriously hurt themselves and other innocent people on the roads, and any accident that occurs as the result of reckless driving may result in severe or fatal injuries. While reckless driving is first and foremost a criminal offense prosecuted by the state, victims are also able to pursue damages in civil court. If you or a loved one was injured by a reckless driver, our compassionate, highly skilled Lakeland reckless driving accident injury lawyers are prepared to advocate for full financial compensation on your behalf.

Getting hit by a reckless driver can tragically change your life forever. Certain injuries may never heal, and the financial expenses involved with seeking treatment can be astronomical. Depending on the severity of the crash, you may have to pay for things like ambulatory care, hospitalization, imaging tests like X-rays and MRIs, surgery or multiple surgeries, assistive medical devices, medications, physical therapy and rehabilitation, chiropractic care, copays and deductibles, prosthetics, and more. You may have to take a significant amount of time off work, using sick days or vacation time that you otherwise would not have used or taking time off that you will not be compensated for. You may have to cancel travel plans, cancel activities you normally enjoy, buy a new vehicle, and suffer tremendously in pain until your injuries heal. Another person’s terrible decision can cost you thousands, tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. It’s not fair that you should have to bear the burden of these costs alone, but unfortunately insurance companies don’t want to give you the full amount you deserve because it’s in their best interests. That’s why it is so important to have an aggressive lawyer on your side who has extensive knowledge about navigating reckless driving claims and who is unintimidated by major insurance carriers.
