Reckless Driving is a Leading Cause of Car Accidents

Reckless driving is a very serious public safety problem. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that reckless and overly aggressive driving is a factor in more than half of all fatal car accidents reported in the United States. These accidents are preventable. Every motorist has a legal obligation to operate their vehicle in a safe, careful manner. 

What is Reckless Driving in New Mexico?

Reckless driving is more than mere negligence, it is a crime. Under New Mexico Law (NM Statutes § 66-8-113), reckless driving is defined as operating a motor vehicle “carelessly and heedlessly in willful or wanton disregard of the rights or safety of others and without due caution and circumspection.” Put another way, reckless driving comes in a number of different forms. Some notable examples of reckless driving include: 

  • Weaving in and out of traffic; 
  • Tailgating another vehicle;
  • Extreme speeding;
  • Street racing;
  • Blowing through traffic lights or stop signs; and
  • Distracted driving. 

A reckless driver may be cited for a traffic violation or even arrested at the scene of the accident by the responding police officer. That being said, even if a reckless driver is not officially sanctioned by law enforcement, they can still be held liable for the resulting damages through a personal injury claim. 

All Reckless Driving Accidents Require a Comprehensive Investigation

Car accidents should always be investigated by an experienced professional. At Caruso Law Offices, P.C., our Albuquerque reckless driving attorneys are ready to conduct an immediate investigation of your crash—with a focus on both determining exactly why the crash happened and gathering all of the evidence that you need to prove fault. We make sure that the other driver’s reckless conduct is established so that you are in the best position to prove fault and recover financial compensation. 

How Much Compensation Can You Recover After an Accident?

In New Mexico, auto accident victims can recover compensation for out-of-pocket losses and non-economic damages. Unfortunately, obtaining a full and fair personal injury settlement is more challenging than simply proving liability. Insurance companies fight to resolve cases for the lowest amount possible—they may offer you far less than your damages. Do not accept an unfair settlement. At Caruso Law Offices, P.C., our mission is to maximize your financial compensation. If you were hurt in a reckless driving accident in Albuquerque, we can help you seek money damages for: 

  • Ambulance and emergency care;
  • Medical expenses;
  • Physical therapy;
  • Mental health treatment;
  • Lost wages;
  • Diminished ability to earn;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Emotional distress;
  • Scarring; and
  • Permanent impairments.
