Drivers, pedestrians, cyclists and motorcycle riders who are injured in collisions with a reckless driver can file a civil claim against the at-fault party in pursuit of compensation for their injuries. If successful, claimants may be awarded compensation for medical expenses, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and property damage suffered as a result of the collision. In certain situations where the reckless driver acted in a particularly egregious manner, punitive damages may also be awarded.
