We can Identify the Liable Party and hold them Accountable
Motorists have a duty to drive defensively. That means always watching out for other vehicles while driving and not putting one’s own need to get to their destination quickly over the safety of others. Aggressive driving behavior defies this basic duty. When a driver treats their commute like a competition and views other motorists not as other human beings sharing the road but as obstacles in their way, disaster often ensues.
These aggressive drivers should be held financially liable for the personal injuries and damage they cause. At Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P., a Long Island aggressive driving accident lawyer will represent you and protect your rights.
We can help you recover compensation and will evaluate the specific circumstances of your aggressive driving collision. We will identify the responsible parties, gather evidence proving their liability, file a claim with their insurance company for damages, and follow through with that claim, making sure they pay you what you deserve.

Examples of Aggressive Driving
There are multiple forms of aggressive driving. We want to hear about the details of your situation and inform you of how we can help.
A driver must keep a safe following distance from the vehicle in front. That typically means one standard car length for every ten miles per hour of speed. Unfortunately, if you spend enough time driving on Long Island, you will see people driving 70 mph with less than the length of a Mini Cooper separating their front bumper from the back bumper of the car in front of them.
Tailgating is a major contributor to rear-end collisions, which can result in major injuries, particularly for the front driver. Getting rear-ended can cause spinal injuries, along with brain injuries from the driver or passenger’s head hitting the back of the seat, dash, or steering wheel. According to the Mayo Clinic, whiplash is a common injury suffered in car accidents.
We will pursue compensation from a tailgating driver and help you recover what you deserve.
The lines painted on the road make it very clear when it is and is not acceptable to pass. Moreover, if the driver in front is going the speed limit, it is not appropriate to pass even if there is a passing lane open. Improper passing can lead to all kinds of bad situations, the worst, perhaps, being a head-on collision.
If you sustained injuries in a crash with a driver who was trying to pass improperly, our accident attorneys can help you build a case against them and recover compensation for your economic and non-economic damages.
There is speeding, and then there is reckless speeding. Doing 95 in a 55, for example, cannot be explained away by saying one just lost track of their speed. The only reason a driver goes that fast is they are aggressively trying to move through traffic.
The old cliché is true: speed kills. If you were hurt, or your loved one was hurt or killed by a driver who was speeding, we will seek to hold them liable and help you recover damages.
Road rage is a major problem on Long Island, particularly during rush hour when commuters are trying to get to and from work as quickly as possible. As presented by the New York Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), road rage involves a driver who is intentionally trying to intimidate you, impede your movement, or run you off the road. If your collision involved road rage, we will take aggressive action against the responsible party.
Disregarding Traffic Controls
Like speeding, a driver who intentionally blows through a light or guns it instead of slowing down for a yield sign because they are too impatient to wait is committing an aggressive maneuver. If they cause a crash in the process, they should be held financially liable.
Other Aggressive Driving Maneuvers
No matter the specifics of your aggressive driving accident, our job is to get you the compensation you deserve.
We want to get started on your case as soon as possible to collect fresh evidence and get in touch with witnesses who may have helpful information to share. We offer strong legal representation and can protect the right to compensation you deserve.
Proving the Aggressive Driver’s Negligence
With sufficient evidence, we can help hold the aggressive driver accountable for their wrongdoing. We must demonstrate that the four elements of negligence are present in your case. These four tenets are:
- Duty of Care: The aggressive driver owed all other motorists a duty of care to drive safely.
- Breach of Duty of Care: This driver breached their duty of care by driving aggressively.
- Causation: The aggressive driver caused a crash in which you suffered injuries.
- Damages: You now have damages because of the crash, and these can be remedied through compensation.
You do not have to fight alone. We are here to support you and get your damages covered so you can move forward more comfortably. In New York, you generally have three years to file a personal injury lawsuit, according to CVP §214. A wrongful death action must generally be started within two years of the date of the victim’s death. These time periods may be much shorter depending upon the situation. It is best to reach out soon to allow us to get the ball rolling as soon as possible after your crash.
