Lancaster Reckless Driving Accidents Attorneys
Reckless driving takes numerous forms, perhaps the most common of which is distracted driving. In 2009, the Department of Transportation reported that nearly 500,000 people were injured in distracted driving accidents across the country. As these statistics show, distracted and reckless driving are all too common, causing innocent and unsuspecting people serious harm and losses. Tragically, many people also suffer lasting disabilities or even lose loved ones in such accidents.
At the Law Office of Bill Pelhan, our attorneys believe that victims of reckless driving accidents in Lancaster should not have to deal with the repercussions of these accidents on their own. From physical and emotional trauma to financial consequences, reckless driving accidents can place victims and their families under a great deal of stress, something which those responsible for these accidents should be held accountable.
What Causes Reckless Driving Accidents?
Reckless driving is so broadly defined that it can apply to many different driving behaviors. Some of the most common reckless driving accidents include:
- Excessive speeding
- Aggressive driving
- Running red lights
- Running stop signs
- Failing to use turn signals
- Using technological devices while driving
- Drinking and driving
- Driving under the influence
All of these behaviors could be legally considered reckless driving, and all of them could potentially cause you injury and expense. Most typically, those hit by a reckless driver must seek medical attention for their injuries, and this attention can be very expensive.
