Aggressive Driving and Car Accidents
When people are driving from place to place, they are often in a heightened emotional state. Perhaps they are nervous about whatever event they are headed to; maybe they are on edge because they are running late to an important meeting; or it could be the case that they are simply very eager to get to wherever they are going. This can create a dangerous situation on the roadway as traffic congestion interferes with the best-laid plans of motorists and may trigger an unsafe driving response.
If you have been injured in a car accident that was caused by another person’s aggressive driving, it may be in your best interest to pursue financial compensation over and above that which is available to you through an insurance claim. Filing a civil lawsuit can help to provide you with the resources that are necessary to address crash-related damages.

Signs of Aggressive Driving
It is always wise to be actively aware of your surroundings while you are driving, and this can help you to avoid becoming involved in some collisions. Yet it can be difficult to account for and predict the actions of aggressive drivers, and you may suffer significantly as a consequence of another person’s poor choices. Some indicators of aggressive driving that should serve as a warning sign include:
- Frequent and/or non-signaled lane changing
- Unusual patterns of acceleration and braking
- Tailgating, or following too closely behind other vehicles
- Overuse of the car horn
- Attempting to interfere with the progress of another vehicle
There can be no tolerance for aggressive driving. If you have been hurt by an aggressive motorist’s actions, contact the Waukesha car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874 for a free case evaluation.
