The Dangers of Aggressive Driving

Whenever a driver gets on the road, he is expected to be focused, careful, and compliant with all the rules of the road in California. Drivers should always follow speed limits, obey the right of way, and watch out for unsafe driving conditions. For most level-headed drivers, this is a simple process, but for an aggressive driver, all of these guidelines can be thrown out the window.

There is no excuse for aggressive driving. It is one of the most dangerous things you can do on the road, as it drastically increases the odds of a car accident occurring. In an analysis of fatal crashes in the United States in 2018, the Insurance Information Institute (III) determined that aggressive driving contributed to collisions by way of:

  • Speeding – 8,596 collisions
  • Failing to keep in the proper lane – 3,706 collisions
  • Failing to yield the right of way – 3,579 collisions
  • Operating a vehicle in a careless manner – 2,797 collisions
  • Failing to obey traffic signs, signals, or a police officer – 1,990 collisions
  • Operating a vehicle in an erratic, reckless, or negligent manner – 1,955 collisions

Common Aggressive Driving Accidents

Anyone who has seen an aggressive driver on the 405 or Pacific Coast Highway knows that it is only a matter of time until they cause a serious collision. These drivers often speed, tailgate, ignore traffic laws, make dangerous turns, and speed during unsafe weather conditions.

The common types of accidents caused by aggressive drivers include:

Delivery vehicle accidents are another danger, because these drivers are often rushing to the next delivery and checking their apps at the same time. The same rushed pace is true of commercial truckers, and one common cause of truck accidents.

What Can You Recover in a Claim?

When these collisions occur, these aggressive drivers should be held accountable for the trauma they caused to innocent bystanders and drivers. If you or someone you love was injured by someone driving recklessly, you deserve full compensation for the costs you have incurred.

Your personal injury claim can ask for compensation for:

  • All medical expenses, including past and future treatments
  • Lost wages, if you took time off of work to heal
  • Lost earning capacity, if you cannot return to work
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

In order to receive compensation for all of these damages, you will need to file a claim with the other driver’s insurance company. If the driver is uninsured, you’ll have to file under your own UM policy. This is not an easy task, as insurance companies rarely pay out proper compensation without extensive negotiations, evidence, and pushback from a tough lawyer. Your best option is to talk to an attorney at Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie who can handle all the legal requirements for your claim while you focus on healing.
