+ What is Aggressive Driving?

The National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA) defines aggressive driving as “the operation of a motor vehicle in a manner that endangers or is likely to endanger persons or property.”

The following are some common aggressive driving behaviors:

  • Weaving in and out of traffic
  • Excessive speeding
  • Illegal lane changes
  • Failure to yield the right-of-way
  • Brake checking
  • Tailgating
  • Flashing headlights or high beams
  • Excessive use of the car horn
  • Failure to signal
  • Yelling or rude gestures
  • Drag racing
  • Disregarding traffic signals or signs

+ Aggressive Driving and Road Rage

Aggressive driving occurs when a motorist commits traffic offenses that endanger the people around them. Aggressive behaviors displayed while driving can at times escalate to road rage. The NHTSA defines road rage as “an assault with a motor vehicle or weapon by the operator of a motor vehicle precipitated by a traffic incident.”

Road rage driving behaviors may include:

  • Braking suddenly in front of another vehicle
  • Prolonged use of the horn to aggravate a fellow driver
  • Sideswiping
  • Forcing another driver off the road
  • Throwing objects at a person or vehicle
  • Tapping another driver’s bumper
  • Exiting your vehicle with the intent of injuring another driver
  • Brandishing a firearm or other dangerous weapon

Road rage is extremely dangerous and can have serious consequences. Many acts of road rage are criminal offenses that can result in heavy fines and even jail time.

    How to React to Road Rage Drivers

    Being involved in a road rage incident can be frightening. Most drivers are unsure how to respond or protect themselves when other drivers begin to behave menacingly on the road.

    The following tips can help you know how to respond if you encounter a road rage aggressive driver:

    • Call the police. If you feel that you are in danger, stick to the main roads and do not hesitate to call 911.
    • Remain calm. Try not to reciprocate the rude gestures, body language, or actions of the aggressive driver.
    • Avoid eye contact. If possible, keep your focus on the road ahead and avoid making eye contact with the road rage driver.
    • Resist retaliating. Try to steer clear of the dangerous driver and do not try to “get back” at that person on the road.
    • Do not go directly home. If possible, do not go directly to your home or place of employment, as this could result in the angry driver later stalking you or vandalizing your property.

    Why Hire an Aggressive Driving Accident Lawyer

    While it is true that driving can be a stressful experience, especially if you have other challenges going on at home or work, this does not justify aggressive driving or road rage. If you or someone you love was injured in an aggressive driving accident, it could be in your best interest to speak to a personal injury lawyer.

    Victims of aggressive driving accidents may be left with mental and physical injuries and have questions about the best way to move forward. They may be feeling overwhelmed and unsure what to do to obtain compensation for their losses. A car accident attorney can provide you with support and peace of mind during this difficult time.

    Consider some of the benefits of having experienced legal representatives on your side.

    A lawyer can explain your legal rights

    Unless you have legal training, you may not be aware of the laws that apply to your specific accident and situation. An experienced accident lawyer will have a deep understanding of personal injury law and can help you identify any potential legal issues and relevant state and federal laws that apply to you.

    When you have knowledgeable legal representation on your side, you increase your odds of obtaining justice and maximum compensation.

    A lawyer can communicate with the insurance company

    Negotiating with an insurance company without a lawyer can result in very low and unfair compensation. Keep in mind insurance adjusters are not concerned about your best interests – they may even try to place all or part of the blame on you for the car accident. The lower the settlement amount they can get you to agree to, the more money they save their company.

    The aggressive driving lawyers at Phillips Law Group are skilled negotiators. We know the insurance laws that affect personal injury cases and can handle all negotiations on your behalf.

    A lawyer can accurately determine the value of your claim

    Since insurance companies will often offer you a settlement amount far less than your claim is worth, it is important to know how much compensation you are entitled to receive. A personal injury attorney will know how to accurately calculate the value of a claim after an aggressive driving accident.

    A lawyer may consult with outside experts when determining how much compensation the client can get. Our law firm may work with accident reconstructionists, healthcare providers, law enforcement, and other professionals to fully understand why the crash occurred and the extent of our client’s injuries.

    A lawyer can gather evidence on your behalf

    Your aggressive driving accident claim is only as strong as the evidence provided. After taking on your case, your lawyer will launch a full investigation of your accident and collect evidence that links your injuries to the crash.

    Collected evidence may include:

    • Dashcam or video surveillance footage
    • Photos of the accident scene
    • Eyewitness statements
    • Medical records
    • Police reports
    • Expert testimony

    • Pain and suffering
