Causes of Road Rage Accidents in Fulton County, Georgia
Road rage can be a problem anywhere. A driver may lose his temper and begin to drive in a reckless and aggressive manner or threaten to harm others. Although there is no one catalyst that triggers road rage in most situations, a number of factors can play a role. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a major factor in many road rage accidents is traffic delays and congestion, something with which Alpharetta drivers are very familiar.
Other contributing factors may include psychological and sociological issues such as:
- Disregard for the law
- Disregard for the safety and well-being of others
- A sense of anonymity in one’s own vehicle.
Although road rage and aggressive driving are not the same things, road rage may lead to many reckless or aggressive driving behaviors. When a motorist engages in numerous risky driving behaviors, this is aggressive driving. Some of these actions could include:
- Failing to maintain a lane or weaving in and out of traffic
- Passing on the shoulder or where prohibited
- Failure to yield right of way
- Running red lights and stop signs
- Exceeding the speed limit or driving too fast for conditions
- Speeding up and slowing down because of anger at nearby drivers
- Threatening other motorists
- Other reckless actions behind the wheel.
If a motorist engaged in any of these behaviors and caused your accident, or otherwise allowed their anger to create a situation that led to you suffering injuries, Bader Scott Injury Lawyers is here for you. We will review the facts of your accident at no cost to you. Just call (404) 888-8888 today to speak with a member of our Fulton County traffic accident team.

Recovering Compensation for the Expenses You Incurred
Traffic accidents, especially when there are serious injuries, are expensive. We do not believe you should have to pay for yours out of your own pocket if you did not play any role in causing it. Instead, the motorist who could not control his anger and drove recklessly should foot the bill. By filing a car insurance claim or a civil suit in a Fulton County court, the team from Bader Scott Injury Lawyers may be able to make this happen.
As a part of proving your case, we will put a fair settlement value on your losses and expenses, including your financial losses, future and ongoing costs, and intangible losses. We will then demand that the insurance company compensate you for the value of your damages, including:
- Treatment and care for your injuries
- Future medical care and related expenses
- Property damages
- Lost income and reduced ability to earn
- Loss of services
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Pain and suffering damages
- Diminished quality of life
- Wrongful death damages when applicable.
A Statute of Limitations Applies to Personal Injury Lawsuits
In Georgia, Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) §9-3-33 sets a deadline for most accident victims to file a civil suit against the driver who caused the victim’s traffic accident injuries. This deadline is generally two years after the accident, although there are exceptions.
We recommend reaching out to our office as soon as possible after your injuries are stable, or you have a good understanding of your prognosis. We can often reach an out-of-court settlement in these cases, but we need to abide by the deadline for court action if we need to file a lawsuit.
