- Will you miss work because of your injuries?
- Will you need ongoing rehabilitation to recover?
- Do you have permanent disabilities?

What Is Reckless Driving?
A driver who is reckless is one who drives unsafely with willful and wanton disregard for the probability that the driving may cause an accident. Reckless driving is when a driver:
- Weaves in and out of traffic
- Races or tailgates
- Drives an unsafe vehicle
- Goes through a stop sign or red light
- Drives while drugged or under the influence (the bar or social host may be liable)
- Acts out of road rage
