Reckless and Aggressive Driving
Some accidents are caused by drivers whose behavior goes beyond simple negligence. An accident that is caused by an aggressive or reckless driver is not even an accident. Before the wreck happened, someone chose to drive in a manner that put other drivers at risk.

Reckless/Aggressive Driving and Liability
Evidence of reckless and aggressive driving can have an important bearing on liability, especially in situations where the other driver was ticketed by police. Examples of aggressive or reckless driving include:
- Passing on the right side of the vehicle
- Excessive speeding
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Driving while texting
- Driving too fast for traffic
- Driving without concern for the safety or property of others
One reason that it’s important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after an accident is so that evidence of liability can be collected and preserved. Statements from any witnesses need to be recorded before their memories fade. Even if the other driver admits liability in the moments after the accident, his or her story can change when it comes time to pay the bill.
