- Drive inebriated (drunk or under the influence of another substance, legal or illegal)
- Drive while taking their eyes, hands, or focus off the road for even a few seconds

We Cannot Predict How Much You May be Able to Receive
While we cannot tell you what type of settlement to expect, we can evaluate your damages to establish a fair settlement amount we want to strive for when negotiating with the insurance company.
Call Ben Crump Law, PLLC today at (844) 638-1822 so our Hialeah reckless driving lawyers can figure out what your options are and how much you may be eligible to pursue. If your insurance company evades our attempts at fair negotiation or our negotiations spur a disappointing result, we can appeal a wrongful denial or low settlement that does not cover even the most basic of losses.
We will explore every option to collect fair awards. We may be able to pursue compensation to cover:
- Emergency medical treatment
- Additional medical treatment
- Physical and psychological therapies
- Any braces or crutches you need
- Replacement or repair of personal property
- Transportation costs
- Childcare costs
- Pain and suffering
We may also be able to pursue other types of financial awards.

The Statute of Limitations Might Apply to Your Case
In Florida, the statute of limitations on lawsuits after personal injury accidents is four years under Sect. 95.11 of the Florida Statutes. Do not wait to reach out to Ben Crump Law, PLLC after your accident with a reckless car or truck driver, as the timeline may limit your available options. We will look into any exceptions to the statute of limitations available, but there is always the possibility that the timeline expires before you can file a lawsuit.
