Reckless driving in Los Angeles, also referred to as aggressive driving, can occur when a driver commits a combination of moving traffic violations that significantly endangers nearby people or property. Reckless driving has become a serious concern on American roads and highways, as it places drivers, passengers and pedestrians in great danger of suffering injuries during car accidents.

Some common examples of reckless driving are:

-Excessive speeds

-Unsafe lane changing

-Disregarding traffic signs and signals


When you are involved in an accident through no fault of your own, it can be distressing to know that your accident could have been avoided. Drivers that fail to follow the rules of the road are liable for the accidents and injuries they cause others due to their needlessly careless decisions.

Often these accidents could have been completely avoided had the driver been paying closer attention to his or her driving and considered the consequences of his or her reckless behavior.

At The Law Offices Of Gerald Marcus, our reckless driving accident lawyers are adamant that the party responsible for your injuries should also be responsible for the emotional, physical, and financial damages they caused you. As a safe driver, you should not be forced to carry the financial burden of medical bills from injuries caused by another party.

As unlawful acts, reckless driving can result in drivers being held liable for compensating victims for the damages they suffered during accidents.

Although reckless driving is negligent and often illegal, conclusively proving that another driver exhibited such behavior can be a difficult legal battle. When personal injury claims are combatted by insurance companies that do everything in their power to deflect allegations of negligence, proving negligence and liability will require meticulous preparation and aggressive advocacy from experienced attorneys.

When handling your case, our team works closely with you to evaluate your situation, conduct investigations, work with witnesses and fight until we can obtain favorable outcomes.
