It is concerning when a fellow motorist begins to display signs of aggression or even road rage. However, if a driver’s aggressiveness leads to a crash, that person should cover your losses. 

Getting the person to do so is not always easy because an aggressive driver has already shown signs of combativeness and may be willing to do anything to avoid fairly compensating you. With the help of an aggressive driving accident lawyer from our team at Gordon & Partners, you can fight for justice to get what you deserve.

What Is Aggressive Driving?

Aggressive driving refers to endangering other persons or property through a combination of moving traffic offenses. According to Florida Statutes 316.1923, the violations that involve aggressive careless driving include:

  • Speeding
  • Improperly changing lanes or passing other drivers
  • Tailgating
  • Not obeying traffic signs or signals
  • Failing to yield the right of way

Aggressive driving doesn’t just involve making a couple of mistakes in quick succession or being negligent. The offending driver must display intent and awareness and is usually committing these behaviors to provoke other motorists.

While state law defines aggressive driving, it does not specify charges for it. Officers may list it on a citation, which judges could use as a reason to increase penalties for offenders.

How Can Our Aggressive Driving Accident Attorneys Help You?

You can call on us to aid you in holding the aggressive driver responsible for your injuries after an accident. We’ll take the lead in the following important areas so you can focus on recovering.

Reviewing the Facts

We offer a free evaluation to get an overview of your case and inform you about your options. If you have a valid claim and want to collaborate with us, we’ll do a deeper dive into the details of the accident to determine who is at fault and what level of responsibility they bear for your losses.

Investigating Further and Collecting Evidence

If you’ve already been able to get some notes, photos, videos and statements about the incident, that can be beneficial to your case. We’ll examine those for every shred of evidence to support your claim. Our team will then look for additional proof if necessary and interview eyewitnesses to strengthen your case.

Calculating the Full Extent of Your Damages

Remember that your total losses may not be apparent at the outset. We’ll determine everything you have a right to claim.

Financial Losses

The insurance company is only likely to offer you payment for immediate financial expenses, but they won’t exert themselves to find every possible piece of monetary compensation you deserve.

Our experience and resources allow us to determine how much the aggressive driver really owes you. For example:

  • How long will your medical treatments last, and what will they cost? 
  • Will your injuries impact your ability to earn a living? 
  • Do you need any modifications to your home and vehicle? 
  • What are any related travel and incidental expenses that you must pay to receive treatment?
  • What will your car repairs actually cost you?

We’ll examine every element of your situation to ensure the insurer doesn’t miss any financial compensation that you deserve. 

General Damages

Insurers also tend to overlook general damages. These are the pain and suffering you experience after an accident that have no specific cash value but still impact your enjoyment of life.

For instance, the psychological or emotional trauma you experience after an aggressive driving accident could be particularly difficult to deal with. You might feel fearful on certain roads or in specific situations. 

The effects of your injuries might also make you self-conscious about your appearance or cause you to struggle with anxiety over not being able to engage in the same work or activities. Our team arrives at the correct calculation to ensure you’re claiming every cent you deserve in these noneconomic losses.

Wrongful Death

If you’re filing on behalf of a loved one who died in an aggressive driving accident, you can still recover the financial losses the deceased suffered as well as your family’s losses. You can also claim the pain and suffering your loved one experienced before death and the resulting grief and trauma your family must now cope with. Talk to our team about filing a wrongful death suit with a survival claim to get justice in this situation.

Fighting for a Settlement in Negotiations

Throughout the entire process, you won’t have to deal with an insurance company any more than a few limited necessary interactions. Insurers prefer to communicate and negotiate with policyholders and accident victims because they can use subtle strategies that can affect your claim and reduce their payout.

For example, they could take an innocent expression of saying that you feel “fine” to imply that your injuries are not so serious. They’ll also look for loopholes or technicalities to offer you less.

Insurers can’t get away with such sneaky tricks when we’re representing you. We’ll keep them honest and make sure they present a fair settlement.

Informing You About the Proceedings and Advising You

We won’t let you be in the dark about what’s happening as we strategize, communicate and negotiate. We’ll inform you about how things are going and share anything you need to do to strengthen your claim.

Feel free to call us or message us any time to chat. We also converse in Spanish if that’s easier for you.

Representing You in Court

Occasionally, an insurance company or defense team does not want to provide a reasonable settlement, but we won’t give up. We’ll take your claim to court until you get an appropriate resolution. Instead of worrying about the complexities of legal procedures, you can continue to focus on getting better.

What Steps Do You Need To Take After an Aggressive Driving Accident? 

You can protect your case by taking a few important steps after your accident:

  1. Get to a secure spot away from traffic and call 911 for help.
  2. Seek medical attention, and follow doctor’s orders.
  3. If you can safely interact with the other driver, get their contact and insurance information.
  4. Get photos and videos of the accident scene and make notes. 
  5. Let your insurance company know that you’ve been in an accident, but don’t go into detail.

Once you’ve done those things, it’s a good idea to talk to us at Gordon & Partners for further advice in your fight for justice.

How Do You Determine Fault in an Aggressive Driving Accident?

You may be ready to take out all of your frustration on the aggressive driver for the accident. Still, the truth is that other parties could share in the blame and owe you compensation as well. If that is true, we’ll make sure that those individuals or entities don’t get off the hook and file claims against them as well.

The defense could also assert that you were partially at fault for the accident or your injuries. Even if they can establish that claim in some way, you can still recover compensation as long as they cannot place more than 50% of the responsibility on you. 

To be ready to counteract any invalid defenses, work with our lawyers to prove the aggressive driver’s fault and find any compensation from other sources.
