Westchester Reckless Endangerment Lawyer – Hire a Lawyer to Protect Your Rights

By Spodek Law Group | July 27, 2023
(Last Updated On: July 27, 2023)

Being charge for reckless endangerment is a serious matter. Charges can stem from reckless driving to a disregard for public safety. Reckless endangerment is a crime element that involves creating substantial risk to the safety of another person. The offending person will also have shown a lack of concern. Many cases that claim reckless endangerment involve traffic accidents and car collisions.

Reckless endangerment can also involve some type of disregard for the safety of children, or for the safety of others close by. Even if the intent to hurt someone is lacking, a person can still be charged for reckless endangerment if they engaged in activity that created an injury, or a substantial risk of injury to others.

A reckless endangerment lawyer has the knowledge, education, and experience to handle the complexities of such cases. It is simply to complex for the average individual to handle on their own. How a lawyer deals with matters can mean the difference between a conviction or penalties that are less severe. The quicker an attorney can get to work on your case the better the chances the case will be more favorable to the client than initially feared. One of the reasons is the cases may not stand up well where the recollection of events fades over time.

An attorney may also have insights because of the familiarity with the judge or prosecutor. As such, your attorney will have a better chance of putting together a much more favorable strategy for their client. This type of inside knowledge is valuable to an attorney.

A person charged with reckless endangerment can sometimes face both criminal and civil liabilities. Civil negligence is the result of someone getting killed or injured as the result of one person’s negligence. This means there was a departure from the way a reasonable person would have acted. Reckless endangerment is a Class 3 misdemeanor with a possible penalty of up to six months in jail, and/or a fine up to $750. The judgment may include both along with a fine.

1. In civil negligence cases, a judge or jury determines that a defendant’s actions were negligent and they caused the plaintiff injury.

2. In criminal negligence cases, the burden of proof lies with the prosecution. The prosecutor’s job is to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

A day in court can be extremely chaotic. On a busy day, things move fast with respect to judges, bailiffs, prosecutors, and defense attorneys going about their duties. Also, there is a lot of legal terminology used in court rooms. A person without an attorney can often receive a convicted before they even realize their trial ends. It is a sad thing to see people lose in court because they were not represented by a lawyer. There are several qualities that every good attorney should have:

  • An attorney should have great communication skills. This is necessary to argue convincingly before judges and juries in a courtroom. The ability to speak well in public is essential.
  • Your attorney should have good judgment to be able to draw reasonable and logical conclusions. This also allows them to spot weaknesses in the oppositions arguments.
  • Your attorney should also have solid research and analytical skills. This quality allows them to absorb large quantities of information.
  • People skills are essential as well. Lawyers work with and for people.

If someone files charges against you in a reckless endangerment case, it will be too complicated to go it alone. Hire an attorney that can walk you through the steps and represent you in a court of law.
