It is no secret that traffic in and around Los Angeles can be heavy and frustrating. This heavy traffic can result in extreme driver impatience, which can sometimes lead to road rage. Drivers who operate their vehicles while in this state of mind are much more likely to cause a serious accident. The best thing you can do is to try and avoid these drivers or even pull off the road, if necessary.

Still, however, accidents can and do occur at the hands of enraged drivers. If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by road rage, you are not alone. The experienced attorneys at Rostam Law can assist you with proving negligence or wrongdoing on the part of the at-fault driver – and with pursuing and recovering compensation for your injuries.

Classic Signs of Road Rage

There are many signs of road rage that drivers should be on the lookout for. Common signs of road rage include:

  • Speeding far in excess of the posted speed limit
  • Abruptly weaving in and out of traffic
  • Ignoring traffic control devices (including stop signs and traffic signals)
  • Tailgating other drivers to a dangerous degree or purposefully bumping another car
  • Threatening other drivers or displaying a weapon

When enraged drivers engage in these types of dangerous activities, they significantly increase their chances of causing a traffic accident.

When accident victims suffer injuries in a road rage incident, they can recover damages for their medical bills, lost earnings, pain and suffering, inconvenience, and loss of enjoyment of life, from the at-fault party. A knowledgeable personal injury lawyer in Los Angeles could assist you with making a claim for damages against the responsible party.
