Reckless Driving Motorcycle Accident | Los Angeles
Living in California, driving is an every-day risk that everyone takes. With so many cars on the road, coupled up with the amount of distraction people have all around them today, it is inevitable that some people will drive recklessly and injure others. The question that concerns everyone who as been involved in a motorcycle or auto accident is, “what constitutes reckless driving?”
Factors that can lead to reckless driving are:
- Committing Traffic Violations (failure to stop at a red light)
- Suddenly applying breaks on a wet surface causing skidding
- Making a U-turn without using turn signals
- Driving without headlights
- Excessively Speeding
- Inattentive driving
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
There are many more factors than this, and while one of these factors alone may not constitute reckless driving, a combination of any of these factors can support a conviction for reckless driving.
Reckless driving not only puts the negligent driver at risk, but also endangers others around them. When a person shows blatant disregard for not only their own safety, but the safety of others, it can lead to serious injuries or even death.
The most common types of injuries that people suffer when involved in a reckless driving accident are:
- Back injuries
- Head injuries
- Brain Damage
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck injuries
- Broken or crushed bones
- Severed limbs
- Torn ligaments/Knee Injuries
