Facts about road rage car accidents in Florida and elsewhere

Aggressive driving has plagued Florida and other states for decades, turning many ordinary excursions into horrifying experiences. Incidences of road rage typically involve reckless or negligent driving behaviors, which in turn can lead to car accidents.

Often, a motorist targeted by someone exhibiting road rage does not even know why this other party has become so angry. Our personal injury lawyers have seen many cases in which injured victims are completely puzzled about why the incident occurred. Here are a few more facts about road rage.

  • Road rage is a leading cause of car accidents according to the Elite Driving School.
  • More than 30 percent of recent accidents were linked to illegal maneuvering and other behaviors indicating road rage.
  • Surprisingly, research has shown that victims of road rage often become overly aggressive drivers in response.

Fortunately, it may be a relatively simple matter to prove fault in car accidents caused by road rage. Often, other motorists witnessed the behavior that led up to the accident as well as the accident itself. These witnesses, combined with evidence collected at the scene, lend strength to an injured victim's case. One thing we urge you not to do if an angry motorist targets you is to respond by driving aggressively yourself.

We urge you to seek legal advice if you have suffered a road rage-related car accident. During your attorney consultation, be sure to tell your lawyer in detail about the other driver's angry and reckless driving behavior. We also invite you to browse the many car accident webpages on our site to learn more about motor vehicle accidents and compensation solutions.
