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”
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.
