Rhinelander Reckless Driving Attorneys
Most serious car accidents are caused by some kind of driver error. This can be anything from a momentary distraction to negligent actions showing little regard for others’ safety. Under Wisconsin law, egregious acts of driver negligence are classified as reckless driving. This behavior can be grounds for both prosecution and a civil claim.
If you or a loved one has been harmed by a dangerous driver, you may have grounds for legal action against him or her. At the offices of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, we strongly believe that innocent victims should not have to face significant losses because of someone else’s poor choices.

What Is Reckless Driving?
Our state’s laws define negligent driving as some act committed by a motorist that he or she knows – or should know – will put other people’s safety at risk. An act of negligent driving is elevated to reckless driving if it puts other in serious danger or causes bodily harm to anyone. Examples of acts that can be considered reckless driving include:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (or within 4 hours of being intoxicated)
- Attempting to drive around or otherwise ignore railroad crossing signals
- Running red lights, stop signs, etc
- Racing on public roads
- Any dangerous violation of traffic laws
