If an individual gets injured by another individual’s reckless driving and his/her insurance does not cover the individual’s medical expenses then the individual may sue the person who was driving.

Would it be considered reckless endangerment if an individual screamed and pushed elderly people in a crowded elevator?

In most situations, one may argue that screaming at and pushing elderly people in an elevator maybe reckless endangerment. But in some states of USA like California, reckless endangerment may not be considered to be a crime. However, if the elderly people get injured in the elevator during the incident, the individual may be sued for negligence.

He/she may collect all the medical bills and records and then sue the individual for the medical charges with the help of a personal injury attorney.

Can an individual appeal for a re-hearing of a reckless driving judgment?

An individual may appeal for a re-hearing within 30 days of a reckless endangerment driving judgment. He/she may not be able to appeal the plea and request for a re-hearing if it is past 30 days from the day the judgment was passed.

Can an individual who did not disclose information about a sexually transmitted disease to a sexual partner be prosecuted for reckless endangerment?

The reckless endangerment laws may be different in different parts of USA.

The partner may also sue the individual in a civil court for damages.

How can an individual claim punitive damages in a reckless endangerment case?

An individual may have to prove that the conduct of the accused individual was malicious and he/she intentionally tried to harm the individual in order to claim punitive damages in a reckless endangerment case.

Being a victim of reckless endangerment can be a very difficult situation for anyone. If you are unaware of reckless endangerment laws, it can only make the situation more frustrating. It is important to know about the provisions of the reckless endangerment laws so that you know what your rights are if you are a victim of reckless endangerment. You can always ask an Expert to know what constitutes reckless endangerment and how you can take action against it.

Recent Reckless Endangerment Questions

  • Location: Pennsylvania. Victim (church member) pulled over

    Location: Pennsylvania. Victim (church member) pulled over completely to the shoulder of the road and got out of his car. While out of the car, another vehicle ran off the road, into the victim's car, and totalled it. Since the victim was not in the car at the time of the collision, he thankfully did not sustain any inThe victim only had liability insurance, not collision. After more than 2 months, the insurance company of the person responsible for the accident informed the victim that the specific car that ran into the victim's car was not insured - that the owner had not registered his newly purchased car. They suggested that the victim personally go after the person who caused the accident. Til now (11 weeks) there has been no compensation at all for the damaged car, for arranging alternate transportation, etc. A laptop computer and stroller were damaged beyond repair as a result of the accident. Best way to get this settled, please?
  • 4 yrs ago I was coming out of my gated subdivision and making

    4 yrs ago I was coming out of my gated subdivision and making a right turn out into a busy***** I had a stop sign and bicyclist ran his because he was looking down, had iPod on and dark sunglasses. I saw him and abruptly stopped but he tried to slow down with his foot to brake and ended up at my front grill holding himself up. I had completely stopped before he passed in front of me. Joggers, walker and bicyclists do this all day everyday at this same crossway in front of my subdivision. He refused help, ambulance 911 etc. He said he was fine and just wanted to get to work because he was on his lunch break and exercising his leg because the previous yr he had a motorcycle accident. Long story short he decided then to call for what he says is medical insurance and proceeds to call 911 but doesn't want to go to hospital. The police take him home and several months later I get a lawsuit from an attorney in a personal injury firm that cranks out suits all day long. I find out the bicyclist has a history of 7 arrests including reckless driving, controlled substance etc. Never convicted and all thrown out of court. His father seems to know people. There have been a lot of bicyclists death around the city so he is after money. I was going maybe 5 miles and hour and abruptly stopped before her crossed going across. The sidewalk crosses really close to the driveway and is also very close to the highway traffic. He has made up this story that I hit him and threw him into the street. My attorney took his deposition 2 months ago and said he rambled like crazy and was say it was his wrist that was hurt. I have never been sued and I am very upset with all this. It has taken 4 yrs for the out of town attorney to travel here. They come off and on to crank out cases. They have asked me maybe 3 times to be deposed and I couldn't due to the fact that I was out of town. Next week I m being deposed and I am very upset that I am drug through this. I don't want to go to trial. Is that the next step after i am deposed and they try to run me over the coals and make me feel say something to make it look like it was my fault? They did not request a video just a court reporter
