What Is Reckless Driving?
In Utah, reckless driving is defined as a pattern of driving behavior that leads to three or more traffic offenses within a span of three miles. For example, if a person is speeding, texting, and rapidly changing lanes without using a turn signal, they will likely be considered to be driving recklessly. Put simply, when a driver engages in behavior that displays a willful or wanton lack of regard for the safety of others, he or she is driving recklessly.
Reckless driving is a crime in Utah, typically charged as a misdemeanor and carrying certain criminal penalties. Aside from any criminal proceedings that may (or may not) take place, victims of reckless driving accidents can seek compensation for their injuries and damages in the form of a personal injury (or wrongful death) lawsuit.
How to Prove Someone Was Driving Recklessly
Proving that the driver who hit you was driving recklessly can be critical to your claim—it clearly shows negligence and, therefore, the fault of the other driver. However, proving reckless driving can also be very difficult. Unless a police officer actually witnessed the other driver behaving recklessly, these types of claims will often turn into a “you-vs.-the-other-driver” situation.
At Lowe Law Firm, we know how to investigate car accident claims in order find supporting evidence and build a case that proves the other motorist was driving recklessly.
When investigating reckless driving claims, we will look at a variety of things, including but not limited to:
- The actual scene of the accident or photographs of the scene
- The angle of the vehicles and extent of the damage
- The type of collision that occurred and whether there was evidence of braking
- The other driver’s cell phone records and whether they were texting or using a cell phone when the accident occurred
- Evidence regarding how fast the other driver was traveling at the time of the accident
- Witness statements (if applicable), as well as security footage from nearby security cameras (if available)
- Your medical records, the types of injuries you sustained, and the projected impact of your injuries on your life
- Your prognosis for recovery
- Your ability to work, either in the short-term or the long-term, as well as your disability level
Working with a team of medical experts, accident reconstructionists, and other specialists, our Ogden reckless driving accident attorneys are able to obtain a clear picture of what happened and who is liable for your damages.
