When you’ve been injured in a road rage accident, your whole life can be turned upside down.

Road rage is a scary thing to witness and continues to be a persistent issue on our roads. According to the NHTSA, in 2018, there were 9,378 fatalities in crashes where at least one driver was speeding and driving aggressively. Plus, for more than 20 years, one-third of all motor vehicle crashes involved speeding and risky driving. 

After being a victim of aggressive driving, you may want to focus on healing, but instead, you are dealing with tons of medical bills, lost paychecks, and insurance paperwork. And to top it all off, the accident was caused by someone else’s negligent road rage behavior.

What is Road Rage?

Road rage — also known as aggressive driving or risky driving — is defined as hostile and angry behavior behind the wheel. Most of us have experienced road rage behaviors firsthand, such as speeding, tailgating, honking, or racing. 

There are many different triggers that may contribute to road rage. A normally perfectly safe driver can turn into a road hazard if they are running late, stuck in traffic, or if they are experiencing unrelated stress. 

Drivers may also get road rage as a reaction to other drivers who are driving carefully or slowly, or to other aggressive drivers. This means that road rage can be very contagious and poses a danger to everybody on the road. 

Causes of Aggressive Driving

With all of the many stressors we experience on the road, it can be easy to feel angry behind the wheel. However, letting that anger get out of control can cause aggressive driving, which puts all other drivers at risk. 

According to the NHTSA, there are many potential causes of aggressive driving, including:
