According to Florida law, reckless driving involves “driving any vehicle in willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property” (Title XXIII, Chapter 316). People who drive unsafely cause thousands of preventable car accidents every year in the United States, causing serious injury or death to innocent people and leaving victims and their families to deal with various physical, emotional, and financial burdens. Reckless drivers who cause accidents may not only face criminal prosecution, but can also be held civilly liable by an injured victim or their family.
If you have been in an accident that was caused by the reckless driving of another, you may be entitled to pursue compensation from the at-fault driver.
