The other driver who hurt you was angry even before the cars collided. As you recover in your hospital bed or in your own home, you probably wonder what would have happened if the other driver had not been so aggressive. Would the collision have occurred? Would you have been hurt?
These thoughts are understandable, but they will not change what happened.
Now You Need to Focus on Your Recovery
The other driver’s road rage may have led the other driver to be negligent. For example, if the other driver was tailgating your vehicle, trying to run you off the road, or even gesturing rudely, then the driver may not have been driving with reasonable care. It may have been that driver’s actions that caused your crash and resulting injuries.
If you are able to prove that then you may be able to recover damages for your injuries. Those damages may include things such as past, current, and future:
- Medical expenses.
- Rehabilitation costs.
- Lost income.
- Out-of-pocket costs.
- Other damages.
For a more individualized accounting of how much you may be able to recover, please contact an experienced car accident lawyer directly via this website. You can also learn more about your rights by reading our FREE book, The Ultimate Guide for Automobile Accident Victims.
Remember, you only have one chance to get a fair settlement for a car accident case. Once the case is settled or decided in court, you will likely be unable to get additional damages in the future. Accordingly, it is important to get your recovery right this time.
