What Is Reckless Driving?
Reckless driving is when an individual displays complete disregard for the rules of the road and safety of other drivers. Many factors can contribute to reckless driving. Unfortunately, even if you take all the necessary precautions, an accident can still happen. The most common examples of reckless driving are as follows:
- Illegal passing
- Weaving in and out of traffic
- Failure to use turn signals
- Failure to yield right of way
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Running stop signs or red traffic lights
Crossing paths with a reckless driver can cause devastating effects for the victim and their family. No one should have to go through a situation like this. The Oklahoma City reckless driving lawyers at Abel Law Firm are fully prepared to take on your case, so you receive the maximum settlement available.
How We Can Help
At Abel Law Firm, we dedicate ourselves to fighting tenaciously to get our clients the money they deserve following their accidents. We believe in the American ideal of justice for all, and we have a reputation for backing up that belief with experienced representation. We use all the resources we have at our disposal to prove the other driver caused your accident and should be held responsible.
Serious injuries can be expensive. Victims may end up paying out of pocket for medical bills and other expenses, including lost wages. If you’re unable to work because of your accident, you might be worried about where you’ll get the money to pay for your treatment. No one should be forced to bear this financial burden alone. Our Oklahoma City accident attorneys may be able to help get you the compensation you deserve if you or someone you love has been injured, or worse, in a car accident.
When you hire one of our Oklahoma City reckless driving lawyers, they will begin to work on your case immediately. All drivers in the state of Oklahoma are required, by law, to carry auto insurance with minimum liability limits. These limits can cover the losses you sustained while undergoing treatment. We will file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company on your behalf and open a full investigation into the crash to prove the other person caused it. Some of the evidence we’ll collect during our investigation to prove your claim includes:
- Police reports
- Witness statements
- The liable driver’s insurance policy
- Photos of the accident scene
- Video surveillance of the traffic crash
- Your medical records
While we’re securing all the evidence we need to build a solid case for you, it is your responsibility to undergo the necessary treatment. Seeking care at a hospital or urgent care facility immediately after the accident can be a vital piece of evidence. You should also follow your doctor’s orders and receive treatment from any specialty physician they refer you to see.
Compensation for Your Injuries
Based on the severity of your injuries and length of treatment, you could receive compensation for several damages. Damages are losses you incurred because of the other person involved. The costs you might be able to seek financial compensation for include the following:
- Medical Expenses: Any past or future treatment that is medically necessary for your recovery, such as ER visits, diagnostic testing, home health nurse, surgery, physical therapy, ambulance services, and prescription drugs.
- Emotional distress: Significant emotional distress, anxiety, depression, PTSD, or other psychological damage that has had an impact on your overall happiness and well being.
- Pain and suffering: Severe physical pain that was directly caused by your injuries and prevented you from performing your normal daily tasks.
- Lost Wages: Past and future pay you won’t be able to earn. This also includes commissions, bonuses, promotions, and paid time off you can’t receive because your injuries keep you out of work.
- Loss of Consortium: If a victim’s injuries affect their relationships, an immediate family member can seek compensation.
- Death Benefits: If an individual dies as a result of someone else’s reckless driving, loved ones can seek compensation for expenses, such as funeral and burial costs.
Our Oklahoma City attorneys know how to handle cases just like yours. We can aggressively fight against insurance companies, or take your case to court, if necessary. You can rest assured you will be in excellent hands when you hire us.
