Atlanta Aggressive Driving Accident Lawyer

Dedicated to Achieving the Outcome You Deserve

Trying to understand why people increasingly seem to engage in aggressive driving is like trying to find out how many planets exist in the universe. There is just no way to know. Some explanations may point to the current pandemic and the frustration so many people feel regarding losing jobs and income or spending so much time stuck at home. Other triggers point to an increase in the number of cars on the road, the stress associated with everyday life, and the increased prevalence of disrespectful behavior.

If that is your case, the personal injury lawyers at Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P. C. are standing by to offer you a free case evaluation. Make an appointment today to talk about the crash, your injuries, and any questions or concerns that may be on your mind. We will help you file a claim against the negligent and aggressive driver, causing your injuries and losses. Call us today.

Displays of Aggressive Driving

Aggressive driving causes thousands of car accidents every year. It includes behaviors such as:

  • Speeding
  • Blatant disregard of traffic signs and signals
  • Tailgating
  • Illegal passing and lane switching
  • Failure to yield
  • Cutting off other drivers
  • Running red lights
  • Driving over shoulders or medians
  • Taking frustrations out on other drivers around
  • Driving recklessly, negligently, or in an erratic manner

An escalation of aggressive driving is road rage, which can end up with one driver physically assaulting another or their vehicle due to a traffic incident. It involves an intention to cause harm to others or their property.

Staying Safe When Encountering an Aggressive Driver

In some circumstances, you may be able to react proactively when an aggressive driver is around, thus preventing a collision and its consequences. If at all possible:

  • Get out of their way and give them plenty of room
  • Do not make eye contact or engage any communication
  • Avoid making rude hand gestures that will only serve as further provocation
  • If you are worried about your safety, immediately call 911

It is essential to understand that the aggressive driver has other issues that do not involve you. Do not take their actions personally, even when they seem to have made you their target. Don’t consider the possibility of negotiating or explaining anything to them. Once the aggression develops into full-blown rage, there is very little to do but to get out of the way and stay safe.

Protect Yourself Immediately After an Aggressive Driving Accident

There are certain actions you can take to protect yourself after suffering an accident due to aggressive driving. If you still fear for your safety, stay in your car and call 911. Move your vehicle to a safe place, lock your doors, and request help from the police. If needed, emergency personnel will also be called upon to evaluate and treat your injuries.

While at the scene, take notes of what happened or record them on your phone. You may later forget important facts and details about the accident. Safely take pictures of the cars involved and get the other driver’s information, including their insurance and the make, model, and license plate of the car. If there are witnesses, get their testimonies and their contact information. This may be very useful should you and your car accident attorney decide to file a claim.

As soon as you can, get a thorough medical evaluation of your injuries. Because your adrenaline is pumping immediately after the incident, you may have delayed onset of pain and some injuries may go unnoticed. Keep a detailed file on all your medical expenses and financial issues to give to your attorney.
