Car Accident Due to Aggressive Driver


Aggressive drivers are among the most dangerous drivers on our roadways, and they cause some of the deadliest accidents. Aggressive drivers aren’t satisfied with just one type of driver negligence and tend to engage in a variety of dangerous driving practices during any single outing.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident that was caused by an aggressive driver, 388CEDA offers the medical care and attention you need to help you reach your most complete recovery. Additionally, if you request that we do so, we can recommend an experienced car accident attorney who can help you skillfully advocate for your case’s best possible resolution.


Aggressive Drivers

Aggressive drivers take their aggressions out behind the wheel. The hallmark of aggressive driving is speeding excessively When you spot another driver zipping in and out of traffic, it isn’t difficult to recognize exactly how dangerous the driver is. In fact, speed plays an outsize role in fatal traffic accidents by not only making accidents more likely but also making them more deadly. In addition to excess speed, however, aggressive drivers tend to engage in multiple life-threatening forms of negligent driving, which can include:

  • Tailgating
  • Passing illegally (including on the shoulder)
  • Attempting to engage other drivers on the road by honking incessantly, gesturing obscenely, and/or shouting obscenities
  • Ignoring traffic signs, lights, and signals
  • Refusing to yield the right-of-way

There is no mistaking an aggressive driver when you meet one on the road.

Your Damages

If you’ve been injured in a car accident that was caused by an aggressive driver, the damages you suffer can be extensive.

Medical Costs

The healing process after being seriously injured is often lengthy, and your medical costs are likely to mount up quickly, including expenses such as:

  • Emergency care and treatment
  • Emergency transportation from the scene
  • Surgery and after care
  • Hospitalization
  • Treatment and care from doctors and specialists
  • Physical therapy
  • Rehabilitation
  • Home health care

If you’ve been injured by an aggressive driver, 388CEDA offers the comprehensive medical care and highly effective pain management that you are looking for. And because you may also need professional legal counsel, we can recommend a dedicated car accident attorney upon your request.

Lost Wages

While you heal from the injuries you’ve suffered, you’re very likely to miss work and to bring in less income as a result. If your injuries interfere with your ability to do your job or your ability to continue advancing your career, you could also be looking at diminished earnings into your future.

Pain and Suffering

Being injured as a result of another driver’s blatant negligence and outright aggression often comes with a considerable amount of pain and suffering. The emotional component of your accident can be just as damaging as the physical and the financial components and should not be minimized.


The Insurance Company’s Role

If you’ve been injured by an aggressive driver, your claim will proceed through that driver’s insurance provider, which is paid specifically to cover your claim. Insurance companies, however, are profit-driven, and some of the ways they keep these profits robust is by minimizing settlements like yours in whatever ways they can, including some less-than-forthright practices.

Early Settlement Offers

The insurance company might offer you an early settlement, but don’t let this seeming generosity fool you. The hope is that you’ll accept this paltry sum out of desperation – and before you have a solid handle on exactly how extensive your damages are. Before signing off on a settlement, you are well advised to consult with an experienced car accident attorney.

Arduous Claims Process

Another tactic that insurance companies like to use is simply making the claims process so long and complicated that claimants eventually give up in frustration.

Blame Shift

Don’t be surprised if the insurance company attempts to shift blame off of their client, the aggressive driver, and toward you.

Damages Denied

Another ploy insurance companies like to try is denying exactly how serious claimants’ damages actually are.

Experienced car accident attorneys are well versed in the antics of insurance companies and know how to skillfully guide car accident claims toward favorable case resolutions.
