Building a Huntsville Aggressive Driving Accident Case
At the Morris Bart law office, our attorneys know how to manage a case based on an aggressive driver’s negligence. This can be confusing because their most appalling actions may not be the ones we need to show occurred to recover compensation.
Aggressive driving does not always directly cause a collision, but it certainly contributes to them. For example, speeding is one of the top factors in traffic accidents. While it is not the negligent act that leads directly to a crash, it can make a collision much more difficult to avoid. Evidence of aggressive driving will support our case against the negligent driver.
To hold a driver legally liable for a crash, we need to show they acted negligently. This requires us to show four elements were present:
- The driver had a duty of care, usually created by a traffic law.
- They violated the duty of care.
- This directly caused the collision.
- The victim suffered harm.
For example, imagine the driver was speeding and passing using the turn lane. When the driver moved to pass illegally, they collided with a vehicle in the turn lane. The aggressive driver had a duty to maintain their lane and failed to do so. This caused the collision and injuries.
The evidence differs from case to case, but our attorneys know what to look for and the resources we can use to develop strong support for an insurance claim or lawsuit. This often includes:
- The accident report filed by a police officer
- Eyewitness statements
- Video or photos
- Physical evidence
- An accident scene survey
- Accident reconstruction
- The victim’s relevant medical records
- Expert testimony
- Documentation of damages
We build a solid case for compensation before we file a claim or sue the aggressive driver who caused your crash. This is critical for recovering a fair payout in these cases.
Damages Recoverable in a Huntsville Aggressive Driving Case
The damages a crash victim can recover through a Huntsville insurance claim or lawsuit depend on the expenses and losses they endured. They could include:
- Medical expenses and related costs
- Future treatment needs
- Income losses and reduced earning ability in the future
- Miscellaneous expenses documented with receipts
- Pain and suffering damages
What If My Loved One Died in a Huntsville Crash?
Under Ala. Code § 6-5-410, wrongful death damages are rare in Alabama traffic accident cases. This is because the state only allows punitive damages, and there is a high standard necessary to qualify. A jury will only award punitive damages in a crash case when the liable party acted “consciously or deliberately” or with malice.
If your loved one died because of an aggressive driver, our attorney will assess your case and determine if we believe this might be possible.
Our Attorneys Fight for Victims of Huntsville Aggressive Drivers
Sometimes, our attorneys negotiate a settlement with the at-fault driver’s insurer without needing to file a lawsuit or go to trial. In fact, car accident trials are rare. We usually settle these cases for our clients without going to court.
Instead, we demand a fair payout from the insurer and negotiate with them to reach a just agreement. We present strong support for our client’s claim, and the insurance adjuster knows they can pay us now or likely lose the case at trial and have to pay us later.
The statute of limitations that applies in most car accident cases creates a two-year deadline under Ala. Code § 6-2-38. Exceptions could change the timeline and leave us with less time to sue. Contact us about your case as soon as your injuries allow to protect your right to file suit.
