Road Rage Is Extremely Dangerous
Road rage and other incidents of aggressive driving are dangerous to the other cars and pedestrians on the road. Examples of road rage can include:
- Aggressive tailgating
- Swerving in and out of multiple lanes
- Failure to yield to other traffic
- Reckless driving and speeding
- Lane blocking
- Other ways of driving which are intended to frighten or harass others on the road
When a driver breaks traffic law to act out in these selfish ways, they significantly increase their chances of causing an accident.

Proving Liability in a Road Rage Accident
All drivers have a duty of care to follow traffic laws and operate their vehicles so as to keep others on the road (i.e., other drivers, passengers, pedestrians or bicyclists,) safe. When a driver breaks a traffic law and causes your accident, they should be held liable for your injuries.
When Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. examines your case, we will search for evidence of driver liability. This includes such violations of traffic law as:
- Failure to yield and causing a collision
- Illegal lane changes or merges which force the victim into an accident
- Failure to stop, causing a rear-end collision
- Intentionally hitting another car
- Taking illegal action to pressure or trick another driver into an accident
- Speeding up and slowing down so as to create danger
A Westbury road rage lawyer from our team will collect evidence from the scene, secure available video footage, and interview witnesses in order to prove the liability of the responsible driver. When indicated, we will also hire traffic accident reconstruction experts to prove how the raging driver caused the accident.
If you were hurt by an angry or aggressive driver, call Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. at (516) 932-0400. We will discuss your case, including who is liable, during your free consultation.

Compensation in a Road Rage Accident Case
If the driver who caused your accident is found liable, they will owe you compensation for your injuries and the effects this accident has had on your life. This may include:
- Costs of medical treatment, including operations, surgeries, and medications, including the predicted cost of all future medical care you require
- Lost wages or reduced earning income, both past and future
- Damages to your vehicle
- Pain and suffering, both past and future
- Other damages that are unique to your case
You can also recover compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit if a family member was killed in a road rage accident. Wrongful death cases often recover compensation for the pain and suffering a loved one experienced in their final hours or days, the financial losses caused by a loved one’s passing, and more. We know this is a painful time for your family, but securing compensation can help ensure that there are no financial costs on top of your tragic loss.
