Road Rage and Aggressive Driving

Click below to share this on social media:


Road rage and aggressive driving can not only result in car accidents but are often extremely dangerous situations for anyone who happens to be on the road. Many times, the problems associated with road rage extend further than just occasionally getting upset when you are cut off. For victims of either road rage or aggressive driving, it can be especially difficult establishing that the other driver’s deliberate actions caused the accident. You need a qualified New York attorney to assist you in making sure you are compensated appropriately if another driver’s behavior is responsible for your injuries and damage.

Definition of Aggressive Driving

It’s important to understand that most road rage and aggressive driving cases are more than just one person accidentally making a small error while driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), aggressive driving is any combination of moving traffic offenses that endanger another person or property. Aggressive driving might include speeding, weaving in and out of traffic, and other actions intended to increase the risk of an accident. The biggest difference between aggressive driving and other causes of car accidents is that the driver is deliberately trying to cause an accident with no regard for other drivers or property. And, if this is the case, he or she should be held responsible for any ensuing injuries or property damage.

Road Rage is more than Anger

Many victims of road rage grapple with whether or not they made an error on the road that might have angered the other driver enough to justify his or her actions. However, it isn’t your fault if another person becomes so reckless and angry that he or she causes an accident. Becoming angry and venting your anger is natural. Becoming so angry you want to teach someone a lesson by crashing into them, is not. There are instances of road rage that have a medical basis. In fact, out of 10,000 drivers who were studied, as many as 7 percent exhibited road rage behavior, which might be linked to Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED). You will need the assistance of an experienced attorney to help you determine the cause of the accident, investigate the extent of the road rage, and seek compensation for your injuries.

No Matter What Caused the Accident, We Can Help

Although an increasing problem and both extremely dangerous, road rage and aggressive driving may not be as well-known as other causes of car accidents. For this reason, it would be difficult to establish negligence and prove that another person deliberately took some kind of action to cause your injuries, unless you have an experienced lawyer on your side. Whether your accident is caused by road rage or aggressive driving, or other actions such as distracted driving or bad weather, Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP will make sure the person or entity that caused your accident is held responsible.

Even if you aren’t sure whether your accident was a result of road rage or aggressive driving, you should consult a qualified New York lawyer immediately. Contact Greenstein & Milbauer online or call 1-800-VICTIM2 (1-800-842-8462).
