When a person gets behind the wheel of a car, they have a legal and an ethical duty to operate that car safely and responsibly. Unfortunately, emotions sometimes get the best of drivers, and when they do, aggressive driving may be the result. Aggressive driving is not only often illegal, but is downright dangerous, too.

The Insurance Information Institute (III) explains that aggressive driving is a huge factor in car crashes throughout the United States every year. As defined by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), aggressive driving is committing a number of traffic offenses in a manner that endangers other people or property. This definition is very broad, and as such may include acts such as:
Of the above, speeding/driving at an unsafe speed for conditions is one of the most dangerous. To be sure, speeding has been named a leading cause of accidents, although data shows that top causes also include failing to yield, operating a vehicle in a careless manner, and making an improper turn.

Aggressive driving may be viewed as relatively harmless by some – after all, is there anyone who hasn’t felt a surge of rage when behind the wheel? The truth is, however, that aggressive driving can cause accidents that are serious enough to severely injure, or even kill, others. More than just fender-benders, aggressive driving accidents can cause head-on collisions, T-bone accidents, rollovers, serious rear-end crashes, side swipe collisions, and more. As a result, drivers and passengers may suffer head injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), internal injuries, bone fracture injuries, soft tissue injuries, psychological injuries, and more.
When an accident occurs, it can be difficult to determine who is to blame, and in many cases, an investigation will need to be opened in order to figure out exactly what went wrong. In all cases, however, if a driver neglects their duty of care to operate their vehicle in a reasonably safe and careful manner, and if this act of negligence causes the crash, this driver can be held liable for any damages that result. This means that if you have been involved in an accident caused by a driver guilty of any of the actions above, you can seek damages directly from this driver to compensate you for your medical bills, pain, suffering, lost wages, property damage, and any other economic and noneconomic expenses you have suffered.
If you are involved in a crash with an aggressive driver, you have three options for recovering damages: you may file a claim with the insurance of the at-fault driver, file a claim with your own insurance (which you may do if you have collision coverage, MedPay coverage, or UM/UIM coverage), or file a lawsuit directly against the other driver. To begin the claims process, be sure to contact your insurance company as soon as possible after your crash to report the accident. If the insurance company asks you to give a recorded statement, refrain from doing so until you have spoken with an attorney.
