Types of Injuries Associated With Reckless Driving
Reckless driving can result in serious injuries for both parties involved, especially when a vehicle is typically traveling at a higher rate of speed when it happens. Even when the other driver is not speeding, their behavior is needlessly putting people in harm’s way, which otherwise would not have happened if they were obeying traffic laws. The injuries occurring in reckless driving accidents can include, but are not limited to:
- Broken bones
- Damage to the skin or muscles
- Facial injuries due to airbag deployment
- Wrongful death
If you or a loved one has ever been injured in a reckless driving accident, it is important to remember that you can—and should—hold the other driver liable.

How Our Team Can Help You
If a Slidell reckless driving lawyer takes on your case, they will do everything in their power to prove who was truly at fault in your case. At the Morris Bart law firm, our attorneys will work on a case by examining surveillance footage, looking at medical records, gathering eyewitness testimony, and extracting cell phone records (which may prove that the driver in question was behaving recklessly while driving). We will also handle communicating and negotiating with the insurance company.
Most insurance companies do not want to pay what you are entitled to. They may attempt to get you to admit fault or twist your words and claim you admitted you were not injured. To ensure you do not say anything that jeopardizes your case, we will handle all communication with the insurer. We also negotiate and fight to get a settlement that covers all your losses and expenses.
If the insurer refuses to offer a fair settlement, we are not afraid to take your case to court. Call today at (504) 613-4771 for your free consultation. A representative will be standing by to take your call. You do not have to go through this alone, we are here for you.
Definition of Reckless Driving
According to the Louisiana State Legislature, reckless driving is an offense where a driver is operating their vehicle with negligence. This interpretation is meant to be loose, as many actions can constitute reckless driving, including speeding, evading law enforcement, not slowing down in school zones, attempting to illegally pass cars, and other instances of poor judgment. Drivers who engage in these practices are not considering the implications of their actions. That is why they need to be held accountable. Additionally, holding parties accountable for these types of injustices can help prevent further tragedies from happening in the future. While an attorney cannot guarantee payment in any case, they will do their best to see a case through to the end. In the often-complicated legal world, this can help give victims a greater sense of peace of mind. Personal injury law is specifically designed to help individuals who have been wronged by another party’s negligence. When someone has been injured in an accident like this, the offending party should not be able to get away with it.
