Atlanta Aggressive Driving Accident Lawyer

According to the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) 40-6-397, an aggressive driver is a driver who operates a motor vehicle with the intention of harassing, annoying, molesting, intimidating, injuring, or obstructing another motorist. Not only is aggressive driving a misdemeanor criminal offense, but aggressive driving crashes have almost tripled in the past ten years, according to Ride Safe Georgia. Drivers in Atlanta also rank as the most aggressive in the United States. Crash statistics released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) state that more than 66% of all traffic-related deaths are caused by aggressive drivers annually.

One type of aggressive driving is known as road rage. The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) defines "Road Rage" as violent and/or aggressive behavior emerging from a driver's unrestrained anger that may or may not have been caused by another driver's actions.

The most common displays of aggressive road rage include:

  • Striking another motor vehicle with a vehicle.
  • Tailgating.
  • Speeding to pass a vehicle and then cutting the other driver off.
  • Aggressively weaving in & out of traffic.
  • Failing to yield.
  • Honking at other drivers.
  • Screaming at others.
  • Flashing the high beams at slow-moving vehicles.
  • Displaying other aggressive signals to other drivers.

While it is typical that drivers feel some level of frustration towards another driver, aggressive driving can make the situation dangerous and risks the lives of all motorists. Aggressive driving altercations and murders have tripled since 2015, and road rage is one of the most preventable and fastest-growing issues for motorists in the United States.

Common Aggressive Driving Accident Injuries

The accident injuries sustained during an aggressive driving accident in Atlanta are severe and life-threatening. In most aggressive car accidents, there can be several victims, including drivers, passengers, cyclists, pedestrians, joggers, walkers, and others. Our law firm has represented aggressive driving victims who have sustained injuries such as:

  • Amputations
  • Back injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Lacerations
  • Neck injuries 
  • Organ damage
  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Whiplash

If you or a loved one has been in an accident, it is essential that you seek emergency medical attention. Many injuries are internal, and not seeking medical attention could result in death.

Insurance Companies Tricks to Pay Less Than You Deserve 

After the motor vehicle accident, an accident victim may open a claim with the at-fault driver's car accident insurance company. Although an at-fault driver's insurance company is required by Georgia Law to fully compensate the accident victim, insurers seldom make the process that easy. In fact, car accident insurance companies have a duty to their stock shareholders to pay less on accident claims. In other words, the insurance company's interests and your interests as an accident victim are at odds. Therefore, the car accident insurance company will find ways to decrease the amount of money they pay accident claimants. Their tactics may include: 

  • Blaming you or your loved one for causing the accident.
  • Questioning the severity of your or your loved one's injuries.
  • They offer you or your family member a meager settlement.
  • They state that your accident injuries are from a previous accident.
  • They record your statements and use what you say against you.

Recovering Damages in an Aggressive Driving Accident Case

In Georgia, when a driver causes a motor vehicle crash that injures you, you have a limited amount of time to pursue compensation for your losses, including:

  • Accident-related medical costs
  • Loss of earnings
  • Motor vehicle repair or replacement
  • Pain and suffering
  • Rental car reimbursement
  • Property damage
  • Other accident-related expenses

An aggressive driving accident attorney from Montlick Injury Attorneys can help you or your loved one identify the complete amount of damages to recover and file an accident insurance claim or begin preparing the personal injury lawsuit.

Time Limitations / Statute of Limitations 

All states have a time limit in which an accident injury victim may file a claim. These time limits are known as the statute of limitations. Each state's statutes of limitations vary and there are other statutes and laws that can further limit a recovery, based on the jurisdiction and the facts of your potential case. However, it is typical for the personal injury statute of limitations to fall between one to three years, depending on the state in which the claim exists. Thus, a delay in seeking representation can be detrimental to your case.
