Injured Or Lost A Loved One In An Aggressive Driving Accident?
While many people on the road are safe, responsible drivers, some aren’t. They fail to appreciate the magnitude of the risk they take – and the risks they pose to others – when they’re speeding, tailgating, cutting people off or engaging in other aggressive driving behavior. When an accident happens, all too often it’s innocent people who end up paying the price.

How Aggressive Driving Accidents Happen
Aggressive driving accidents can happen due to a number of risky behaviors. They can take place on virtually any roadway, though highways are more common. Examples of aggressive driving include:
- Speeding or driving too fast for the conditions
- Swerving between lanes without signaling
- Trying to run someone off the road
- Running red lights or stop signs
Aggressive driving accidents may involve rear-end collisions, T-bones, rollovers or head-on crashes. They can lead to life-altering injuries such as back and neck injuries and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).
Holding Aggressive Drivers Accountable
You shouldn’t have to pay the price for someone else’s road rage or poor decision-making. Through a motor vehicle accident claim, you can pursue compensation for:
- Your medical bills relating to the accident – past, present and future
- Your property damage and repair bills
- Your lost paychecks due to missed work from the accident
- Your pain and suffering
Our lawyers can help you fight for the financial recovery you deserve. We also handle tragic wrongful death cases resulting from aggressive driving incidents. Depending on the situation, additional compensation – known as punitive damages – may be available if the other driver behaved maliciously.
