How Road Rage Creates Accidents
Road rage can lead to many forms of negligence or reckless driving. Road rage may cause a driver to erratically change lanes, accelerate, or fail to use their turn signal. Regardless of how it manifests, road rage often puts other drivers at risk of collision, personal injury, and even wrongful death.
Some common acts of road rage known to cause accidents include:
- Honking horns
- Swerving in between lanes of traffic
- Yelling and harassing other drivers
- Throwing objects at other cars, bikers, or pedestrians
- Tailgating or accelerating rapidly
In road rage accidents, perpetrators may continue to disregard the safety of others even after a collision. If a driver committed any of the above forms of recklessness or harassment before or after an accident, your lawyer can use this information to build your case.
According to Georgia Code §40-6-273, if a driver causes personal injuries or property damage equaling or greater than $500, then they must do their part to report the accident to the local police department as soon as possible. Unfortunately, in cases of road rage, an angry driver may refuse to comply with state laws such as these. Many times an enraged driver is only concerned with causing further harm or fleeing the scene after they cause an accident.
These kinds of drivers are a danger both to themselves and to others. If an act of road rage resulted in property damage or personal injury for either you or a loved one, then you deserve to try to hold the liable party responsible for their actions. A lawyer who focuses on road rage accidents will step in to fight on your behalf. In building a case to support your rights, an attorney will also collect relevant forms of evidence that can help them to establish a liable party.
A Johns Creek road rage accident lawyer from Bader Scott Injury Lawyers can investigate fault in a road rage accident. We can work with the police and any other parties to understand more about an incident. Once we establish a liable party, we will fight to recover any forms of compensation that you may be entitled to. This can help you to cover the expenses of your medical bills, property damage, and more.

Common Road Rage Accident Injuries
Speeding is often a factor in road rage accidents, which only enhances the severity of personal injuries. Acts of road rage may also involve multiple vehicles, thus increasing the odds of a serious collision. In most accidents, personal injuries require both immediate and ongoing medical attention. Some common examples of injuries caused by road rage accidents include:
- Concussions and traumatic brain injury
- Whiplash and other spinal cord injuries
- Bruises, burns, scrapes, and lacerations
- Broken and fractured bones
Car accidents can often lead to traumatic brain injuries. While the immediate effects of a brain injury are never easy to overcome, many times they also continue to cause problems as time progresses. According to the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC), brain trauma can go on to produce secondary injuries following the initial moment of trauma. If you experience any injuries that present in the days and weeks following your accident, you may be facing increasing medical costs or even lost time from work. These are losses that a lawyer can help you fight to compensate.
If you sought medical attention as soon as possible after your accident and documented any evidence of your injuries, you can pass this information on to your lawyer. Your lawyer can investigate this material to help assess a value for your case and negotiate with the insurance companies if necessary.
