Financial restitution after a reckless driving accident

One of the most common causes of fatal and injurious car accidents in Connecticut is reckless driving, and the most unfortunate aspect of these car accident cases is the fact that they could have been avoided. Indeed, the legal definition of reckless diving indicates that it is the willful or wanton disregard of safety -- meaning that driving recklessly could be interpreted as a choice. All Connecticut divers are therefore encouraged to choose safe driving practices rather than reckless ones.

In most cases, reckless drivers disregard the rules and regulations of the road, and even though most reckless driving instances do not involve a serious crash, those that do can have devastating consequences for the people who are injured. Although no amount of litigation and no amount of financial compensation can reverse the lasting effects of serious car accident injuries, the people who are hurt in such cases will have the right to pursue financial claims against the reckless drivers responsible for their injuries.

In support of these kinds of claims -- which are carried out in Connecticut civil court -- injured parties can use evidence that is revealed in the reckless driver's criminal court proceedings to their advantage. For example, a record that the at-fault driver was convicted of reckless driving in the accident that caused the plaintiff's injuries can be very valuable in the pursuit of such a civil court claim.

At the Law Offices of John J. Lacava, LLC, we are experienced trail lawyers who have litigated numerous claims for financial restitution on behalf of Connecticut plaintiffs injured by reckless drivers. For those who believe they have a valid claim for damages following any kind of car accident injury, we are available to review the situation and provide the inured party with sound legal advice in a free, no-obligation, first-time consultation.
