Reckless Driving Laws in Ohio
According to Ohio law, reckless driving is the act of operating a motor
vehicle with “willful or wanton disregard of the safety of persons
or property.” Those who drive in this manner are subject to criminal
prosecution and can be held liable for any damages they may cause in the
event of an accident.
The following behaviors can be deemed reckless:
- Driving while intoxicated
- Texting while driving
- Running red lights and stop signs
- Driving with a revoked or suspended license
- Tailgating other vehicles
- Changing lanes without signaling
- Fleeing law enforcement
- Driving well over the speed limit
Drivers, pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcycle riders who are injured in
collisions with a reckless driver can file a civil claim against the at-fault
party in pursuit of compensation for their injuries. Successful, claimants
may be awarded compensation for medical expenses, lost earnings, pain
and suffering, and property damage suffered as a result of the collision.
In certain situations where the reckless driver acted in a particularly
egregious manner, punitive damages may also be awarded. If you have been
injured, our firm can review your situation and determine the optimal
course of action to pursue on your behalf.
