Road Rage Accidents in Miami

Road Rage AccidentsAs comical as society makes it seem, road rage is a very serious issue and is considered a criminal offense by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). When temperatures rise and traffic delays accumulate, a typical driver may turn aggressive, resulting in a severe road rage accident on a Miami freeway. The accident may have caused injury or death. Regardless of their motive, their actions are reprehensible by law and only an experienced attorney can help you seek the compensation you deserve.

Our attorneys see victims of road rage accidents on a regular basis because they are, unsurprisingly and unfortunately, a common occurrence. We suggest contacting our team as soon as is possible to discuss your case, free of charge. We do not get paid until the case successfully resolves.

Examples of Road Rage Accidents in Miami

If you’ve been unfortunate enough to have witnessed or been a part of a road rage incident, you will know exactly how impactful such a negative experience can be. Road rage can manifest itself through a variety of ways, but it oftentimes results in an accident. According to the NHTSA, road rage is defined as: "an assault with a motor vehicle or other dangerous weapon by the operator or passenger(s) of one motor vehicle on the operator or passenger(s) of another motor vehicle or is caused by an incident that occurred on a roadway." Some examples of road rage behavior that leads to accidents are:

  • An action that stops traffic
  • Reckless lane switching
  • Tailgating (following closely behind) another vehicle
  • Cutting off other drivers
  • Driving aggressively while arguing or giving hand signals
  • Running a red light
Is Aggressive Driving Equal to Road Rage?

Although very similar scenarios, there are key differences between an aggressive driving incident and road rage. Driving aggressively is considered a traffic offense, whereas road rage is considered a criminal offense, which is much more serious. The NHTSA outlines the nuance between these two concepts as such: Aggressive driving is a result of violating traffic laws and potentially putting others in danger, whereas road rage is the act of using a vehicle or weapon to intentionally assault another driver. As you can see, these concepts can overlap, which is why bringing in the aid of an experienced attorney is necessary when dealing with injuries sustained in a road rage accident in Miami. We have the background and skills to successfully pursue claims involving both aggressive driving and road rage.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none. Marcos G.
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands. Nora N.
Caroyln's expertise and compassion got me through a very trying period of my life. She is an excellent lawyer and human being. 5 Star all the way! Lois H.
I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida. Mike P.
