Aggressive Driving Accidents

Cape Cod Car Accident Attorneys

The Plymouth car accident lawyers at the Law Offices of John C. Manoog III help clients throughout Massachusetts get their lives back on track after a car crash. Whether it's caused by another person's unsafe driving, faulty equipment, or distractions behind the wheel, a person who's been injured in a car accident has the right to seek damages from those responsible. Our lawyers know how to present a client's case in the strongest possible manner, and we will work hard to advocate for your interests through negotiation and settlement, as well as litigation if needed.

What is Aggressive Driving?

"Aggressive driving" refers to any operation of a vehicle in a way that endangers or is likely to endanger other people on the road. It's separate from, but often related to incidents of "road rage." The former term focuses on unsafe techniques and conduct while driving, but the latter concerns physical and verbal altercations that sometimes occur between quarreling drivers. Aggressive driving includes:

  • Speeding
  • Improper and frequent lane changing
  • Flashing lights
  • Tailgating
  • Improper passing
  • Running red lights or speeding up to get through yellow lights

The consequences of this and other unsafe behavior behind the wheel can be serious and even fatal. Speeding alone is a contributing factor in roughly one-third of all fatal crashes in the country each year, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association.

Suing for Injuries Caused by Aggressive Driving

At the Law Offices of John C. Manoog III, we've seen the death and destruction that aggressive driving can cause. While a lawsuit can't bring back a loved one or heal the physical and emotional pain that accompanies a crash, it can help people try to move forward after an accident by ensuring that they get the money they deserve to pay for doctor's bills, property damage, and missed wages.

Car accident lawsuits are typically governed by negligence law. That means the person suing must show that he or she was injured in the crash and that the person being sued caused the crash by acting in an unsafe or negligent manner. While aggressive driving is certainly unsafe, it is vital that the person suing (plaintiff) provide enough evidence to show that the responsible person was actually speeding, running lights, or otherwise driving unsafely. The plaintiff also has to clearly show the full extent of his or her injuries, usually with comprehensive medical evidence.
