Reckless driving is on the rise across the United States. The pandemic has sparked an increase in all kinds of reckless driving, but both speeding on the roads and intoxicated driving especially. A CNN article based on data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration revealed that 38,680 people died in vehicular crashes in the U.S. in 2020 alone, a number attributed to this rise in reckless driving, which is tragically higher than any other year since 2007. St. Pete is a congested metro area; your risk of getting into an accident because a reckless driver wasn’t considering the consequences of their actions is high if you live nearby during this time! If you have been been hurt by a reckless driver, you have a legal right to seek monetary compensation for your injuries!
It’s important to know that Florida law defines reckless driving as a crime, but that it can also be prosecuted civilly. This means that if another driver was found to be speeding, racing, driving under the influence, demonstrating road rage, tailgating, or weaving between lanes at the time they collided with your vehicle, they can be held liable for the cost of your injuries, and you stand to be awarded damages by their insurance company. However, reckless driving can be difficult to prove in court, and insurance companies are experts at paying out as little as possible to injured victims (because doing so protects their bottom line). You need an attorney on your side who can stand up for your rights and aggressively fight for you to get paid the full amount you deserve! The Florida Law Group’s St. Petersburg reckless driving accident injury lawyers have recovered over $1 billion for accident victims around the state. We will not settle until you are paid fairly! Call our St. Pete office today to request a FREE consultation and learn more about your options!
When an accident wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t pay. We advocate for you so you can focus on healing!
Getting hit by a reckless driver is an incredibly traumatic experience that could shape the course of your life permanently. Depending on how severe your injuries are, you may have to pay for ambulatory or air transport, ER care, hospitalization, surgeries, imaging tests like X-rays and CT scans, physical therapy and rehabilitation, chiropractic care, medical devices, copays, deductibles, medications, counseling, and more. Some injuries may be permanent, requiring lifelong care. You may have to take weeks or months off of work without pay to recover, cancel travel plans, or be unable to participate in activities you used to enjoy. The total costs of the reckless driver’s actions may add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars that you have to pay out-of-pocket, even if you have insurance.
In situations like these, the reckless driver’s insurance company should be responsible for covering these costs, but because they make their business out of not paying out claims, they will almost always attempt to devalue or outright deny your injury claim. Trying to negotiate with them can be frustrating and fruitless, especially while you are still recovering from the incident. That’s why you need a lawyer on your side who they’ll respect! Our St. Petersburg reckless driving accident injury lawyers give you the leverage you need to get a fair settlement; we know what tactics will be used against you and how to maneuver around them, and we are not afraid to take your insurer to trial if necessary. We have over 100 years of combined legal experience on our team, making us the ideal firm to handle your case.
