Causes of Car Accidents
Reckless driving is alarmingly common, and it occurs when a driver shows a “willful or wanton” disregard for the safety of other motorists on the road. Reckless driving like speeding, driving erratically, racing and drunk driving are all common causes of car accidents in Milwaukee every day.
Examples of Reckless Driving
Any and all of the following driving behaviors can constitute reckless driving:
- Tailgating (driving too close to vehicle in front of you)
- Passing a stopped school bus
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Having too many passengers in a vehicle
- Making abrupt lane changes
- Ignoring stop signs or traffic signals
Determining Reckless Driving
Typically, if reckless driving leads to a car accident, the driver at fault will be cited at the scene of the accident by the police. Just because, however, a driver does not receive a reckless driving citation does not mean that you cannot pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the driver. A non-cited reckless driver may still held liable for their actions through a personal injury lawsuit.
