Have you ever experienced road rage, either as an aggressor or a victim?

Personal Injury Attorney Craig Swapp has seen his share of accidents caused by road rage and he says people seem to have very short fuses when it comes to driving.

If you are someone who is easily triggered by other drivers, Swapp says the key is to de-escalate the situation.

If someone cuts you off, don't turn around and flip them off.

Law enforcement suggests waving a hand apologetically if a mistake is made, or simply driving away.

Remember that it's not worth it to retaliate.

The moment you decide to be the better person and drive away, that's the moment you're saving yourself from damages, injuries, criminal charges, etc.

If it comes down to it though, what should a person do if things do escalate and they become victims of road rage? People who find themselves involved in road rage should call the police.

They should also never get out of their vehicle to confront the other driver. Getting out of your vehicle leads to physical altercations and the possibility of getting run over on the road.

People who suffer damages and injuries due to road rage incidents should call the experienced attorneys at Craig Swapp & Associates.

They can help hold the responsible accountable for the accident, and fight for fair compensation for your suffering.
