Little Rock Reckless Driving Car Accidents

Arkansas Attorneys Providing Assistance to Little Rock Auto Crash Victims

Under Arkansas law, reckless driving is defined as driving in a manner that indicates a wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property. If a person is driving in a manner careless enough to be considered reckless, they are more likely to be involved in a serious accident. Victims injured in reckless driving car accidents often suffer severe injuries and incur large amounts of medical bills, lost wages, and other out of pocket expenses.

Arkansas Law Prohibits Reckless Driving

Arkansas’ reckless driving standard is similar to the reckless driving standard in other states in that it does not provide a limited list of actions that constitute “reckless driving.” Instead, the law provides a broad “wanton disregard” standard that allows for the facts of a particular case to be analyzed as a whole. Generally, conduct will likely be considered “wanton” if the facts of the case show that the driver appreciated the risk of harm created by his or her conduct. Some driver actions that might meet this standard include:

Building a Case Against a Reckless Driver

Assume school is getting out at Brady Elementary School, located at 7915 West Markham Street, Little Rock, AR 72205. When school lets out and children are walking to cars, drivers are supposed to follow the reduced speed in the school zone. Let’s say two people decide to drag race and come flying down West Markham Street at 65 miles per hour, with one driver losing control of the vehicle and crashing into a parent waiting to pick up his child from school.

A person injured in a reckless driving car accident will often have a claim against the at-fault driver. In the above scenario, recklessness can likely be established. Evidence substantiating your claim can come from a variety of sources, including the police report and witness statements. Following an accident, it is likely that the Little Rock Police Department will dispatch officers to the scene. Upon arrival, the officer can speak with the parties, take their statements, call for aid if necessary, speak with witnesses, and take photographs or measurements of the crash scene. A police report can be a helpful place to begin an investigation into an accident, as it will contain the above information. A car accident lawyer in Little Rock can obtain this report on your behalf in addition to photographs or videos taken by the responding police officer.

Establishing liability is critical in terms of recovering compensation. Victims of auto accidents can suffer injuries like headaches, concussions, whiplash, back pain, and broken bones. In the context of reckless driving, such as drag racing at high speeds, a wrongful death may occur. Elements of damages can include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.
