Lawyer for Reckless Driving Charge in Michigan
According to the Michigan Vehicle Code, anyone who operates a vehicle on a highway, frozen public lake, parking lot or other place open to the general public with deliberate disregard for the safety of other persons or property is guilty of a misdemeanor crime. If this infraction results in the injury or death of another person, you could face felony charges and increased criminal penalties. This is an extremely vague description of a crime, and there are many wrongful convictions and unnecessarily harsh charges because of the nondescript language used.

Our Approach to Charges of Driving Dangerously in Michigan
When the law is not clear about who to charge for what actions, criminal defense lawyers can make a huge difference in every stage of the case. In dangerous driving cases, Michigan law does not go into detail about the actions that deserve punishment, and persons accused of reckless driving could face wrongful conviction without the help of an experienced lawyer.
