Road rage, also known as aggressive driving, is a form of grossly negligent driver behavior. Someone experiencing road rage loses control of their emotions and drives in a manner that is threatening to other motorists.
Unsurprisingly, car accidents are a frequent consequence, with sideswipes, rear-end collisions, rollovers, and hit-and-runs being especially prevalent. Injuries are common in these accidents, and criminal charges can often be pressed against the at-fault driver in addition to having grounds for a personal injury lawsuit.
When crashes are caused by aggressive driving, victims can seek financial compensation to cover their injuries and damages. However, this process can be complicated and goes much smoother with the aid of a qualified Sacramento road rage car accident lawyer from Crowell Law Offices.
Road rage accidents can cause many different types of injuries. Sometimes these injuries are caused by an assault from the enraged driver, while others are caused by the collision itself. Some of the most common types of injuries include the following:
Aggressive driving crashes can also lead to a great deal of psychological trauma. When this happens, it can be difficult to even get behind the wheel of a car for fear of a similar incident occurring.
It’s unfortunate, but one person’s out-of-control anger and negligent behavior on the road can affect you for the rest of your life.
One of the most difficult parts of seeking monetary compensation is proving that the other person was responsible for the accident. You might think it will be straightforward to prove that the other driver was enraged and using their vehicle in an aggressive manner, but working with insurance companies and the legal system is rarely simple.
Your attorney will handle this process on your behalf, allowing you to focus fully on your recovery. We’ll handle the negotiations with the insurance company and any opposing attorneys, as well as the collection of evidence and witness testimony.
If you or someone you love was in an accident that you believe was caused by aggressive driving, it’s crucial to have a qualified legal team on your side. Not only can we help you seek the compensation you are owed from the at-fault party, but we can also help keep you safe from the aggressive driver if you fear for your safety.
You weren’t at fault for your car accident, so you shouldn’t be the one paying the bills related to the crash—especially not if someone used his or her vehicle to assault you.
