Do I Need a Reckless Driving Lawyer?
If you have been in an accident caused by a reckless driver, you may feel overwhelmed by many questions. Can I file a lawsuit? How do I get paid for my injuries? What can I receive compensation for? How much does a lawyer cost? An experienced reckless driving lawyer can help you answer these and any other questions that you may have.
Accident victims are typically entitled to receive compensation for their physical injuries and the mental and emotional impact that an accident leaves behind. You should receive compensation for your medical bills, therapy bills, treatment expenses, and any diminished quality of life factors that result from your accident-related injuries. Compensation for lost wages during your recovery may also be available. Though you are entitled to this compensation, you will likely have to fight against an aggressive insurance company in order to successfully get this money.
Filing a lawsuit against a reckless driver is a complicated and time-consuming process. Jeffrey R. Caffee and the injury attorneys at The Law Offices of Jeffrey R. Caffee will navigate the legal process for you, saving you time and energy so that you can focus on healing from your accident. The Law Offices of Jeffrey R. Caffee works on a contingency fee basis, so if you decide to hire us, we won’t charge a fee unless we win compensation for you.

Types of Cases We Handle
Our attorneys successfully handle a variety of reckless driving cases. Some examples of the kinds of cases we handle include:
- Speeding: The faster you drive, the harder it is to stop suddenly in the event of an emergency. Drivers who exceed the speed limit are more likely to rear-end other cars or lose control of their vehicles.
- Tailgating: Following too close behind another car makes it much harder to avoid a collision if the car in front has to stop suddenly.
- Failing to yield: Drivers who fail to yield the right of way are unpredictable to other drivers on the road and can easily cause intersection accidents.
- Ignoring traffic signs: Running red lights, ignoring stop signs, violating the speed limit, and otherwise ignoring posted road signs can all be dangerous behaviors.
- Unsafe lane changes: Failing to check your mirrors and blind spot before changing lanes, not using your blinker, or weaving in and out of traffic can cause serious collisions.
- Distracted driving: Any behavior that takes a driver’s attention away from the road can cause a driver to lose control of their vehicle or miss something in the road. This includes texting, talking on the phone, talking to passengers, eating, drinking, applying makeup, fiddling with the radio, and more.
- Intoxicated driving: Drivers who are intoxicated on alcohol, illegal drugs, or prescription drugs may have difficulty controlling their vehicles, staying alert, and making smart decisions.
Any driving behavior that is unpredictable to other drivers on the road can easily cause an accident. If you were injured by a driver engaging in these or other reckless behaviors, you may be entitled to financial compensation that can include money for:
- Medical expenses
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Lost earning potential
- Rehabilitative expenses
- Pain and suffering
If your loved one was killed in an accident caused by a reckless driver, you may also be eligible for compensation for their medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of support, and more. These damages can be recovered through a wrongful death claim.
