What Are Good Examples Of Reckless Driving?

When an individual operates a vehicle in complete neglect for others’ well-being and property while on the road, this is reckless driving. It is considered a crime and is punishable by jail time and costly fines. Here are some of the most common forms of reckless driving:

Drag Racing

When two or more cars are drag racing on a public road, this can easily cause crashes between cars caught in the middle of unsuspecting pedestrians. In most states, drag racing is a misdemeanor. Because drag racing is intentional and illegal, it can also be considered grossly negligent.

Weaving In And Out Of Traffic

Drivers that swerve in and out of lanes, often cutting off drivers in their way, are also reckless drivers. They may run into unexpected obstacles because they are flying through traffic and weaving around other drivers. A driver may open their car door, pedestrians may cross the street, or someone may simply decide to change lanes at the wrong time. Drivers that weave through traffic can easily strike someone with little warning.

Fleeing Law Enforcement

Some drivers try to flee police to not get arrested or get a ticket, for example, hit and run drivers. When drivers are on the run, they completely ignore drivers around them and will even bulldoze through other cars to get away from the police. Car drivers that flee law enforcement tend to hit many cars when trying to escape arrest.


Speeding drivers may be trying to cut their commute time in half, but instead increase the risk of harming other nearby drivers. They may intentionally or accidentally fly through red lights, not yield, or crash into left-turning cars. The high force of speeding can make these crashes more deadly.

What Are Damages You Can Claim In A Reckless Driving Case?

Reckless driving accidents are also punishable by law, which means that you may receive both personal injury damages and punitive damages. Unlike punitive damages, your reckless driving settlement can be compensated for out of court and isn’t paid as a punishment. Instead, your settlement is calculated based on the number of damages you experienced.

Reckless Driving Non-Economic Damages​

You can receive both economic and non-economic damages. The non-economic damages are based on the pain and suffering you experience. This can include emotional suffering, such as depression, anxiety, embarrassment, new phobias, and PTSD. Your car accident attorney can help you calculate your pain and suffering with the help of an insurance adjuster. They will use a multiplier based on a number from one to seven that is picked due to how severe your injuries were. This number is multiplied by the number of economic damages and then added back to the total amount to make your settlement estimate.

Reckless Driving Economic Damages​

Economic damages differ from that of non-economic because you receive compensation based on the money you had to spend because of your wounds. Your economic damages include medical expenses that could encompass surgery, lab tests, physical therapy, imaging scans, and other treatment regimes that could continue for months into the future. All of these ongoing costs can be added to your settlement. Similar to this is lost wages, as your past, present, and future income loss can be estimated and added to the total. If your property damage was extreme, this can also be part of the settlement.
