Reckless Driving in Residential Areas
In Massachusetts it is illegal to drive in a manner that ignored the potential for risk to other persons or property. This is known as reckless driving which includes speeding, weaving between lanes, or not using turn signals.Reckless driving will inevitably lead to a car accident and injuries, especially where there are more pedestrians in a residential neighborhood. A victim who has sustained injuries from a reckless driver may sue the driver in civil court.
A reckless driver personal injury lawsuit would allow the victim to recover medical expenses, lost earning, and other monetary amounts to alleviate pain and suffering. Because of the nature of reckless driving, a victim may be able to punish the driver further by obtaining punitive damages.
Any lawsuit against a reckless driver would likely be based on negligence. This requires a showing that the driver failed to drive safely and that was the cause of the victim’s injuries. Typically, with reckless driving comes criminal convictions which can be used in the Massachusetts personal injury lawsuit to establish negligence.
