Chicago Reckless Driving Accident Lawyers

Every driver must share the road. With that comes the responsibility to take reasonable care towards others when driving. Unfortunately, many citizens blatantly disregard other drivers on the road and use reckless driving as a means to decrease their travel time. A reckless driver’s actions are nearly impossible to predict and because of this unpredictability they are exponentially dangerous.

The attorneys at Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC, believe that those who willfully choose to endanger others on the road should be held liable for their actions. Reckless driving unnecessarily raises the risk of an accident and can also increase the severity of the accident. Our Chicago reckless driving accident lawyers can assist you in designing an aggressive legal strategy that will maximize the chances of recovering the compensation that you may deserve if you’ve been hurt in a car accident.

Forms of Reckless Driving

Reckless driving describes a variety of actions that unnecessarily endanger others on the road. A recklessly driven vehicle is usually violating several different laws at once and the culmination of dangerous acts on the road is what leads to detrimental accidents. Reckless driving can take many different forms, some of which include:

  • Excessive speeding
  • Frequent lane changes
  • Tailgating
  • Rapid acceleration
  • Street racing
  • Lack of attention
  • Aggressive driving

All of these actions are dangerous enough in themselves, but a reckless driver will typically execute several of these actions if not all of them at the same time. If you encounter a vehicle conducting any of the above, it is best to move away from the vehicle and report it to the proper authorities if it’s safe to.

Why do people drive recklessly?

Reasons for reckless driving can vary. While many reckless drivers are distracted from the road, some reckless drivers suffer from stress and use aggressive driving as an outlet. Other reckless drivers may just disregard the safety of fellow drivers on the road and simply drive as they please. Reckless drivers often believe that their dangerous driving habits will decrease their travel time; however, it is not uncommon for reckless driving to actually add time to your route, especially if you are involved in an accident. Despite whatever way people justify driving recklessly, such behavior adds preventable risk and is therefore inexcusable.

084_DWP6380To Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC Please accept my sincere appreciation for the services your agency provided to me and my family on the Jessie Palmer wrongful death cases. There were so many issues that needed to be resolved, and with your assistance we were able to finally get the diagnosis report printed. My stepdaughters asked me to thank you as well for the settlements they received from their father’s estate. We humbly appreciate the wonderful job your firm did with our case. In the future we will refer family and friends to your agency.

Thank you so much for your diligent, professional, and thorough handling of my car accident settlement. You were beyond helpful, accommodating, and supportive during the process. You patiently explained, in detail, the procedures that would take place during the course of the claim. You continually updated me as progress was made and gave me in-depth details. Being that I was a novice to this type of practice, you advised me as to what was realistic, yet fair, as far as when, how, and monetarily the claim would be settled. When an offer was made, you advised me accordingly, and counter-offered for what you believed to be a reasonable and objective settlement. Beyond that, you also worked determinedly to reduce my medical claims and had great success. An attorney friend of mine went as far to say that you “hit a home run” when you negotiated my settlement. I want you to know how much your guidance and attentiveness to my claim meant to me. I will definitely recommend you and your firm should any of my acquaintances need legal advice in the future.

Dear J.B. ,
I wanted to thank you, for the job you did on my case. You were not only an excellent lawyer, you were a friend along the way as well. You always promptly called me, addressing my questions and concerns. As far as my settlement goes, I couldn’t have expected more then you got for me. Many lawyers “brag” , about the amount of settlements they get for their clients, on their T.V. commercials . You, got me more then these lawyers “brag” about. Thank you for getting me such a strong settlement, and being a friend as well, along the way. I’d be more then happy to talk to anyone who would like to know , what a fine attorney you are. Thank you for being there for me. Sincerely,

- J.F.

It was not only comforting to have skilled, knowledgeable and experienced attorneys and staff during one of the most difficult times of my life, but to be supported by people who had my best interest at heart and genuinely cared about me and my personal feelings made all the difference in the world.
