Negligence and Recklessness on the Road
Many motorists are injured because of a preventable mistake made by another driver. These instances of negligent or reckless behavior on the road may include the following:
- Failing to heed a stop light or stop sign
- Failing to yield at a yield sign
- Falling asleep or not paying attention
- Texting while driving
- Recklessly speeding
- Weaving through traffic
- Failing to obey right-of-way laws
These thoughtless errors may leave a motorist in need of emergency medical care and potentially with a need for long-term treatments to address more severe injuries. This medical attention can prove too expensive for many households to handle, making some form of compensation particularly crucial for their financial stability.
Driver error may cost you your good health, the expenses associated with an injury, and your wages during treatment and recovery. However, there may be legal action available to pursue financial compensation for these losses and expenses.
