As a Fort Worth, TX personal injury lawyer, I know that the vast majority of car accidents resulting in a serious injury are caused by negligent motorists who were driving in a reckless manner. A large percentage of the cases my firm handles involve motorists who were either driving while intoxicated or texting while driving. Both these activities are, in my mind, extremely reckless.
However, there are some imprudent motorists out there on Dallas-Fort Worth roads who cause major auto collisions as a result of even more audacious behavior. I’m talking about drivers weaving in and out of traffic across every lane of the freeway at daring speeds, about road rage drivers that slam on their brakes in the middle of the interstate, about drivers who cannot wait two minutes for a train to pass – and so will drive around the closed railroad crossing into the path of an oncoming train.
As outrageous as these harebrained activities sound, they do happen. In many cases, the thoughtless drivers responsible for causing such car crashes will face criminal charges as a result of their foolhardy misadventures – but if someone was injured as a result of their careless actions, they may also be sued for any personal injuries or wrongful death that occurred.
Reckless drivers are guilty of gross negligence. By intentionally driving in a dangerous manner they seriously jeopardize the lives of everyone else on the road: other drivers, pedestrians, even their own passengers. Anyone who is injured as a result of their hazardous driving deserves full and fair compensation related to any medical expenses incurred, lost income, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, etc.
If you or a member of your family suffered injuries as a result of a motor vehicle wreck caused by the brash and dangerous driving of a reckless motorist, then it is critical that you consult with an experienced board certified personal injury attorney who will take the most aggressive legal action possible in order to hold the idiot responsible and recover for you the full justice that you deserve.
