Reckless Driving Crashes in Washington State
Every time you get behind the wheel, you are trusting that other drivers will behave rationally and safely. Unfortunately, even the safest drivers are at risk of being injured by the actions of a reckless driver. An estimated three out of every ten car crashes involve reckless driving, and nearly 90% of reported crashes are attributable to some form of human error.
If you have been injured in a Washington car crash, you have the right to pursue a negligence claim for your injuries. Anyone who gets behind the wheel has to exercise reasonable care to obey the traffic laws of the State of Washington. Failure to do so may constitute negligence and give rise to a claim for lost damages for the injured party. Pursuing a personal injury claim in Washington is a long and confusing process for those with little experience in the law, but you do not have to do it alone.
