The Insurance Information Institute (III) states that the following actions are indicative of an aggressive driver:
- Weaving in and out lanes of traffic
- Illegal driving on places where they should not
- Passing in situations where it is not allowed or imprudent
- Operating the vehicle in an erratic, reckless, careless, or negligent manner or suddenly changing speeds
- Failure to yield right of way
- Failure to obey traffic signs, traffic control devices, or traffic officers, failure to observe safety zone traffic laws
- Failure to heed warnings or instructions on vehicles displaying them
- Disregard of turn signals (using theirs or responding to others’)
- Failure to adhere to posted speed limits
We Can Valuate Your Losses to Determine a Potential Settlement
Your Arlington Heights aggressive driving accident lawyer can consult with specialists who can determine exactly how your accident occurred. You may be able to pursue multiple parties for compensation, as there could have been more than one negligent driver on the road. Alternatively, other factors might have been present that are not evident at the scene.
We will explore all opportunities for compensation. For example, we can check to see whether the accident vehicles did not have faulty or incorrectly repaired parts, which could have affected the outcome of the crash.
Recalls similar to those you can search for on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) might entitle you to seek a financial award.

We Can Help Determine Your Compensation
Depending on how your accident played out, you could collect several forms of compensation. For instance, if you lost a loved one, we know no amount of money could ever replace them. However, compensation could help you accomplish some of the things you have to do after losing your loved one.
These things may include paying for your loved one’s medical expenses billed before their death, holding a funeral, or determining how to supplement the loss of an income. You could also collect noneconomic losses, like loss of consortium and guidance.
If you were harmed in an accident, your Arlington Heights aggressive driving accident lawyer could help you pursue a financial award to pay for the following costs:
- Medical bills: Prescriptions, ambulance, hospital, doctor’s visits, physical therapy
- Vehicle repairs: If the accident damaged your car
- Transportation costs: While your car is in the shop
- Childcare and home help: While you are bedridden due to your injuries
- Lost wages: Any paychecks, benefits, or tips you could have earned while you recover
- Lost earning potential: Due to an inability to return to your job due to your accident-related injuries or disability
Your Arlington Heights aggressive driving accident lawyer will work on your behalf to negotiate with the insurance companies at all points of the case. If we are not able to reach a fair settlement for you, we can take your personal injury lawsuit to court.
