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.

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.
