When a driver causes your injuries as a result of road rage, his or her insurance company may refuse to provide coverage for your injuries. That is, it may be difficult for you to obtain compensation from the other driver’s insurance company if the other driver caused the accident intentionally. This is because many automobile insurance policies include exclusions for intentional torts. In other words, if the other driver intentionally caused the accident and injured you, there may be a provision in his or her insurance policy that says the policy will not provide coverage to the driver and will not compensate you for your injuries.
However, there may be ways around this. For example, it may be possible to argue that, although the other driver was in a rage at the time of the accident, he or she did not actually intend on causing a wreck. In other words, although the other driver was behaving recklessly on purpose, the actual causing of the accident was accidental (i.e., negligent). If it was negligence (instead of intentional behavior) that caused the collision, then the other driver’s insurance policy should provide you coverage for your injuries.This South Florida Road Rage Crash/Wreck Attorney Perseveres on Behalf of Clients
In the worst case scenario that the other driver’s insurance policy will not cover you for your injuries, you may still be able to go after the other driver individually. If the other driver had personal assets (belongs, bank accounts, etc.), then you may be able to pursue those personal assets. Moreover, if the other driver is a high wage earner, then you may be able to garnish his or her wages in the future.
In the State of Florida, a resident of a home is allowed to “homestead” the home. This protects the home and prevents creditors from being able to force its sale in order to satisfy a judgment. However, second homes and rental properties are not protected, so, if the driver whose road rage caused your injuries had investment properties, you may be able to force their sale in order to obtain compensation for your injuries.
If you’ve been the victim of a road rage incident, you might be entitled to punitive damages. Punitive damages are designed to punish the wrongdoer, rather than compensate you (as in compensatory damages).Call 786-294-7711 to Speak to this Broward County Road Rage Collision Law Firm Today
