Every driver is legally required to adhere to traffic laws so that they do not endanger the lives and safety of other motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians. When drivers fail to uphold this important obligation, it can result in serious and sometimes deadly auto accidents. In fact, a third of all vehicle accidents each year occur because of reckless drivers.
You should be able to trust that other drivers will act safely and follow the rules of the road while driving. Unfortunately, not all motorists are as careful as they should be. If a reckless or otherwise dangerous driver has caused you to suffer in a car accident, the Austin personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Vic Feazell, P.C. believe that the person at fault for your accident should be held accountable for his or her actions.

Common Types of Reckless Driving
Sometimes, drivers willfully disregard traffic laws and instead engage in unsafe driving behaviors, putting themselves and others in danger. Some of the most common reckless driving behaviors include:
- Weaving between lanes
- Not using turn signals
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Running red lights and stop signs
All of these reckless driving behaviors could result in the serious injury of innocent people. However, these hazardous drivers could be held financially responsible for the damages they cause.
