Speed and Reckless Driving Contribute to Many Single Vehicles Accidents

Single vehicle accidents are becoming more common. These accidents are commonly the result of negligent driving and have a great potential of becoming deadly. Speed and reckless driving are among the top causes of such car collisions.

For example, on January 12, 2010, a 19-year-old Delaware woman lost control of her vehicle and struck a telephone poll before the vehicle overturned on Back Mountain Road in Frederick County, Maryland. Although the driver was trapped in the vehicle for a period of time she only sustained minor injuries. She is being charged with reckless driving and failure to maintain control of a vehicle.

Charges such as reckless driving have significant impact on your driving record. Repeated charges can result in the suspension or loss of your driving privileges in addition to hefty fines and penalties. It may also become difficult to get car insurance if you have charges such as these on your driving record.

If you, a family member, or someone you know has been injured in a motor vehicle accident due to someone's failure to maintain control of their vehicle or you would like more information on car accidents, please contact Portner & Shure for a free consultation.
