What is reckless conduct in a car accident and what are the legal implications?

Frequently Asked Question Video for Wisconsin Personal Injury

Sometimes a car accident is caused by more than simple negligence. Sometimes it is caused by reckless conduct. Reckless conduct is conduct so out of the ordinary that it really shocks the conscience. For example if someone is a multiple offense drunk driver and involved in an accident or if someone is texting and involved in an accident. That is considered reckless conduct. Reckless conduct may entitle you to receive punitive damages as a result of that accident.
