As we learn to drive, we’re taught how important it is to drive defensively and operate our vehicles in a way that ensures the safety of ourselves, our passengers, and everyone we share the road with. Tragically, somewhere along the line, motorists may forget the importance of safety and begin driving aggressively, putting themselves and others at risk. 

According to a survey of Americans across the US in 2019, 82 percent of drivers admitted to driving aggressively or experiencing road rage at least once over the past year. Acts of aggression while driving are the cause of many serious car accident injuries and fatalities. 

If you or a loved one has been injured in a Michigan aggressive driving accident, contact Mike Morse Law Firm today.

Common Forms of Aggressive Driving

 

According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Association (NHTSA), aggressive driving is defined as “the operation of a motor vehicle in a manner that endangers or is likely to endanger persons or property.” 

The following actions may qualify as aggressive driving:

  • Excessive speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Weaving in and out of traffic
  • Failing to signal a turn or lane change
  • Racing
  • Aggressive horn honking
  • Ignoring traffic lights and signals
  • Driving on the shoulder, sidewalk, or median
  • Passing where prohibited
  • Yelling at other drivers
  • Offensive hand gestures
  • Ramming a person’s vehicle 

Road Rage and Intentional Harm

 

Heavy traffic, aggressive driving on the part of other motorists, and/or stress in someone’s personal life can cause a driver to become extremely angry while behind the wheel. Road rage may manifest in the form of verbal assaults, hand gestures, or aggressive driving. In some extreme cases, aggressive drivers will brandish a gun or use their vehicle as a weapon to cause intentional harm. 

Drivers who become extremely angry while driving can cause severe accidents, injuries, and even fatalities. Some acts of road rage are criminal offenses, resulting in drivers receiving heavy fines and jail time. 

If you or a loved one were severely injured by a driver who sought to cause you intentional harm, contact Mike Morse Law Firm today. We’ll fight to hold the guilty party liable and win you the peace of mind you deserve. 

Michigan No-Fault Insurance Requirements

 

After being involved in a serious motor vehicle accident, you need to notify your own insurance company. You may also receive a call from the insurance company of the at-fault driver. Michigan law requires all owners and operators of cars and trucks to hold a no-fault insurance policy. 

The no-fault benefits policy must provide the following four types of coverage:

  • Personal Injury Protection (PIP): These benefits provide coverage for medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses if you were seriously injured in an accident. 
  • Personal Protection Insurance (PPI): This provides coverage caused to property such as parked vehicles, buildings, and fences within the State of Michigan.
  • Residual Bodily Injury Liability (BI): This coverage protects a driver in the event that they caused bodily injury to someone else. 

Benefits of Hiring a Michigan Aggressive Driving Accident Attorney

 

If you’ve been injured in a Michigan aggressive driving accident, you may be debating whether you should simply settle with the insurance company or hire an auto accident lawyer.

We can build a solid case for you by:

  • Identifying all at-fault parties
  • Gathering evidence against the at-fault driver
  • Filing all necessary paperwork
  • Sending a demand letter
  • Negotiating with the insurance company
  • Ensuring you receive the quality medical care you need
  • Taking your case to court if necessary

Our goal is to make the settlement recovery process as easy as possible for you and your family. Your compassionate and experienced attorney will regularly communicate with you during the duration of your case and gladly answer any questions that you have.
