Building a Car Accident Case Based on Aggressive Driving in Georgia
Aggressive driving involves intentional, reckless actions that can significantly increase the risk of an accident. While many of the actions involved in aggressive driving are already illegal, O.C.G.A. § 40-6-397 increases the penalty for them when they are done on purpose with the intention of:
- Annoying or harassing
The statute leaves this rule vague on purpose because it needs to apply to many different situations when a driver might be putting others at risk because of their aggressive behavior. These situations may include:
- Improper or unsafe lane changes
- Improper passing
- Slowing and stopping or other dramatic changes in speed
- Impeding the flow of traffic
- Other reckless driving behaviors
Georgia law automatically turns these traffic violations into a “misdemeanor of a high and aggravated nature” when the driver is engaged in aggressive driving.
If you suffered injuries because of an aggressive driver, it is not necessary for them to be convicted of aggressive driving in criminal court for Bader Scott Injury Lawyers to recover compensation on your behalf. We may be able to do this simply by proving that their violation of a traffic law caused your accident.
We can get to the bottom of what caused your accident, who caused it, and how much it may be worth. Let us review your case and discuss your options for free today. Call (678)-562-5595 now to get started on a free case review with a member of our firm.

Recoverable Damages in an Insurance Claim or Civil Suit
Once a Roswell aggressive driving accident lawyer from Bader Scott Injury Lawyers shows the responsible driver’s negligence, we can also calculate a fair settlement range for your case and demand a just payout from the at-fault driver’s insurer.
To back up our demand, we can present the evidence we collected to document your losses. This evidence could also play a role in court to show you deserve a verdict and award if your case goes to trial.
Evidence in a car accident case may include:
- Your medical records detailing your injuries
- Your related medical bills
- Medical expert testimony about your injuries and future care needs
- Receipts from your car repair or replacement
- Proof of your time away from work and lost income
- Receipts for any related out-of-pocket expenses
We can demand that the insurance company provides a fair settlement based on your current and future losses, including expenses, financial losses, and intangible losses. Depending on the specifics of your case, recoverable damages may include:
- Medical care and related expenses
- Lost income and any lost benefits
- Diminished earning capacity
- Vehicle repair and other property damages
- Related expenses with receipts
- Pain and suffering damages
- Other intangible losses
Some aggressive driving accidents are so serious that the victims suffer devastating or even fatal injuries. We may be able to seek ongoing care costs for an accident victim who requires around-the-clock care or support.
In addition, if you qualify, we can pursue wrongful death damages under O.C.G.A. § 51-4-2 for surviving family members of those who lost their lives because of accident injuries.
