Reckless Driving Is As Dangerous As Drunk Driving
With all the attention justifiably paid to drunk driving, texting while driving and certain other high-risk behaviors behind the wheel, basic driving safety principles may get less attention than they deserve. Many injury-causing and fatal car accidents are caused by reckless driving in other forms — from speeding to running red lights, failures to yield, tailgating, making unsafe lane changes and more.
If you have been seriously injured or lost a family member in a North Carolina auto accident, you should have skilled legal representation on your side whether the other driver was cited for a traffic violation or not. Practicing since 1994, our Raleigh-Durham reckless driving accident attorneys have successfully resolved many cases requiring:
Resourceful investigation of the crash scene, witness interviews and other efforts to collect all available evidence showing a driver was speeding, distracted by a cellphone or other device, or in violation of other traffic laws
- Tracking of a traffic or criminal case to align our efforts for recovering compensation with legal findings that an at-fault driver committed extreme negligence
- Pursuit of litigation against trucking companies and their insurers after serious truck accidents caused by overly aggressive or reckless semi and delivery truck drivers
Rely On Us, Not The Insurance Company, For Fair And Full Compensation
Car accidents happen so quickly — often without allowing victims even a split second to react or brace for impact — that it can be challenging to determine what caused the crash and what occurred just prior to it. For example, drivers often dispute who had the right of way in an intersection accident or which driver entered another’s lane on the highway.
If you believe an accident was caused by another driver, relying on your own insurance company to establish fault and pursue all the compensation you deserve is a major risk. You can count on the insurance company to protect its own financial interests, but not to prioritize your maximum recovery and well-being. That is exactly the level of dedication we consistently provide at The Law Offices of John M. McCabe, P.A.
