If a motorist’s anger causes him or her to drive carelessly, a car accident can quickly result. An angry and negligent driver can ultimately cause other motorists to suffer catastrophic accident injuries.
Some of the ways that road rage can lead to car accidents include:
- Following too closely
- Improper lane change
- Disobeying traffic signs and signals
- Failing to signal
- Failing to yield
Because of the carelessness of the angry driver, you or your loved ones could face medical expenses, an inability to work, as well as excruciating physical pain as a result of injuries sustained in the accident.
When someone’s carelessness leads to another person’s accident injuries, the negligent party should be held accountable for the harm caused. Every driver on the road assumes the responsibility of obeying traffic laws and driving in a way that does not endanger others. When another driver fails to respect his or her responsibilities as a driver, you deserve compensation for your injury-related expenses.
