Reckless NYC Driver
Reckless drivers jeopardize the safety of all motorists and pedestrians in New York City. A reckless driver may cause an accident with serious injuries by driving too fast, running red lights, weaving in traffic, driving on the sidewalk or by any driving that endangers highway users.

Your Legal Rights After an Accident Involving Reckless Driver
There are many ways a reckless driver can cause an accident that leads to serious injuries or wrongful death. A driver may be charged with reckless driving for speeding, following too closely, making abrupt lane changes without signaling, passing on the shoulder and many other dangerous maneuvers. A reckless driving charge is more serious than a traffic citation such as a speeding ticket.
A motorist charged with reckless driving will face criminal prosecution and serious penalties if convicted. But if you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by a reckless driver, you’ll need to take legal action independent from the criminal prosecution to recover full compensation for your injuries and losses.
New York law gives accident victims legal rights to seek monetary damages for injuries caused by a reckless driver. The money can cover your medical bills, loss of income from missed work and damage to your vehicle. You may be entitled to punitive damages as well. You will need to file a civil lawsuit against the reckless driver to obtain compensation.
An aggressive New York City car accident lawyer at David Resnick & Associates, P.C., can help you recover the maximum compensation you are entitled to receive after an accident caused by a reckless driver.
