Tampa Reckless Driving Lawyer

Operating a motor vehicle always carries a certain level of risk, even when we are cautious. Every responsible driver minimizes this risk by following traffic laws. Unfortunately, there are many drivers on the road who do not seem concerned about their own safety or others’. In Florida, driving without regard to others’ rights is known as reckless driving. It is both a criminal and a civil offense.

If a reckless driver has caused an accident that injured you, he or she could be facing a $500 fine and up to 90 days in jail. However satisfying it may be to see him or her face consequences for their behavior, it still leaves you with medical and property repair bills that you should not have to handle.

Fortunately, Tampa reckless driving lawyers at the Ruth Law Team can help you win the compensation you need to cover these expenses. Call us at (888) 783-8378 to learn more.

Reckless Disregard

State law defines reckless driving as operating a vehicle “with wanton or willful disregard for the safety of persons or property.” (Florida Statutes Section 316.192) This definition is deliberately somewhat vague, so the law can cover nearly any kind of intentional reckless behavior on the road. A driver may be guilty of reckless driving if he or she:

If you have suffered injuries or property damage due to another driver’s deliberately dangerous behavior, a Tampa reckless driving injury lawyer can help you explore your chances for winning fair compensation for your injuries and related expenses.

Amy was the greatest attorney that I have had. She did her job and went behond. She did everything she told me she was going to do and then some. If I ever need another attorney, it will definitely be Amy. Thank you so much.

 
Kristopher G.
Clearwater

The Ruth Law team is an ethical, professional and very experienced law office full of people that care about their clients. They tell the unvarnished truth about what the law says and how it may be applied. There are so many law firms that advertise big payouts without being honest or work directly with insurance companies using formulas of the insurance company’s making. Research attorneys and their firms before being fooled by flashy advertisements. It was a relief to know we were represented by truthful staff who actually cared about long-term outcomes.
