You Pay Nothing Until You Recover Damages
When you are injured in an accident and steadily accruing thousands in medical bills, you understandably may be concerned about your finances. You may be unable to return to work temporarily or even permanently, which can put your household income in a precarious position. You might wonder how you can afford to hire a lawyer on top of all these expenses.
We take personal injury cases on a contingent basis. This means you pay nothing upfront or out-of-pocket for us to get started on your case. In fact, you pay nothing unless you receive compensation from the liable parties.

Compensation in Reckless Driving Claims
When you suffer injuries in a car accident caused by others, you may be eligible to collect both economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages include financial expenses that directly result from your accident. These damages can include medical bills, expenses for necessary medications and medical assistive devices, and the costs of repairing or replacing your vehicle.
You may need counseling or therapy to deal with the trauma of a catastrophic accident, which can be costly. You also may lose significant amounts of income due to your accident, especially if your injuries prevent you from ever returning to your previous job.
Non-economic damages have no set dollar amount. This form of compensation may include physical pain and suffering, loss of companionship and consortium, loss of an important bodily function, or loss of a sense, such as hearing or sight, depending on your circumstances.
A severe car accident that results in injuries can be a devastating blow to you and your family. A bad wreck can throw your finances into disarray while you are struggling to recover from the physical pain of your injuries and the mental trauma of experiencing a crash.
Our Clearwater reckless driving accident lawyer can remove some of these concerns by handling your case so that you can focus on yourself and your family. We know it takes time to heal from an accident, so having legal representation allows you to have that time while we take care of your legal matters.
Reckless Driving Behaviors
The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) defines “speeding and aggressive driving” similarly to what most people would consider to be reckless driving.
Crashes that involve speeding and aggressive driving include those in which at least one driver:
- Drove too fast for conditions
- Exceeded the posted speed
- Operated a motor vehicle erratically, recklessly, or aggressively
These crashes also include those in which a driver committed two of the following violations:
- Failure to yield the right-of-way
- Followed too closely
- Ran a red light
- Ran a stop sign
- Improper passing
- Failure to stay in the proper lane
- Disregarded other traffic signs or road markings
Your collision could have been the result of other negligent behaviors not described here. Regardless, you could still seek financial recovery for your injury-related losses.

Consequences of Reckless Driving
People who drive recklessly and cause traffic accidents can face various consequences. They may receive citations for speeding or other traffic violations. They also may face criminal charges in some cases for the offense of reckless driving.
However, these penalties do nothing to assist the injured parties, who may be facing extensive medical bills, lost wages, and even permanent impairments.
Our Clearwater reckless driving accident lawyer can file a personal injury claim or lawsuit if you were hurt due to reckless driving. Your case would be filed with your insurer because Florida is a no-fault insurance state. However, if the cost of your damages exceeds your policy limits, you could then file a claim or lawsuit with the at-fault party’s insurer.
