  • Suing For Road Rage

If you have been involved in a road rage incident and injured as the result, you may be able to sue for personal injuries.

Suing For Road Rage

Over the past years, incidents of road rage have been gradually increasing.  A road rage incident can be sparked by almost anything; a driver getting cut off, failing to use a turn signal, or even just looking at someone the wrong way. Sometimes these incidents escalate and result in personal injury or property damage. If you are able to identify the person that assaulted you, you may be able to sue the driver for any personal injuries or property damage to your vehicle, in addition to potential criminal charges. Below we cover how you would be able to sue for personal injuries.

Personal Injury Attorney

A personal injury attorney handles any number of things that are “personal injuries,” including car and bus accidents, elevator accidents, accidents that occur on city streets, bed bugs, dog bites, and construction accidents and wrongful deaths.

A personal injury can be defined as a physical and/or mental injury that occurs because of someone else’s negligence, intentional actions, or strict liability.

Negligence: when another party fails to act with reasonable care. For example: if you suffer physical injuries as the result of a driver rear ending you because they are not paying attention, the injuries could be deemed a personal injury due to negligence.

Intentional Harm: when another person sets out to hurt you. Examples include: battery, assault, and false imprisonment.

Strict Liability: if you are injured by a product (such as a malfunctioning car), anyone involved in the production, distribution, or sale of the defective product can be held responsible.
