What constitutes reckless driving?

Reckless driving includes any action that endangers other drivers on the road. These types of road behaviors put the driver of the vehicle, as well as the other drivers on the road, at risk of serious and sometimes life-threatening injuries. Speeding, tailgating, and drunk driving are all examples of reckless driving. When a driver chooses to behave in a reckless manner, he or she may become responsible for the financial compensation for the accidents and injuries that result from his or her behavior.

Each driver on the road is legally obligated to follow posted speed limits and road signs in order to uphold public safety. When reckless drivers fail to follow the laws of the road and cause the injuries of others, the West Palm Beach personal injury team at Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller & Overbeck P.A., may help victims hold them fully accountable for their actions in court.
