A Boise road rage accident lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates can help you navigate the legal process and bring your case to a successful conclusion.


What Is Road Rage?

Road rage occurs when drivers experience intense—often violent—responses to the everyday frustrations of driving. For most people, becoming frustrated while driving and experiencing momentary displeasure at being cut off or something similar is simply a normal occurrence. These situations typically immediately blow over as both drivers go about their day.

However, in aggressive driving situations, one or both drivers become so angry that they enter an enraged state that may lead them to make poor decisions. At the very least, road rage leads to distracted driving; at its most serious, road rage can cause multiple-car pileups and even fatalities.


Common Types of Aggressive Driving Accident Injuries

Injuries experienced due to road rage accidents usually stem from either direct personal assaults or the car accidents themselves. These injuries can run the gamut from minor to life-threatening. Just a few of the most common injuries are listed below:

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), stabbings, shootings, and physical and mental assault can also happen in these situations. Aggressive driving is a primary cause of severe car accidents that don’t need to happen. Drivers who commit assaults or who cause accidents while enraged can be held responsible for any losses, injuries, and damages that they cause. If you were injured as a direct result of another driver, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses—whether the other driver is officially charged with a crime or not.
