When a reckless driver is responsible for your car crash
Speeding and reckless drivers cause serious accidents every day. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), reckless driving contributes to a significant portion of the 6 million motor vehicle accidents that occur every year in the United States. Speeding plays a role in approximately 30 percent of all fatal auto accidents, while other types of reckless behaviors are a factor in about 33 percent of fatal accidents.
