Accidents caused by flashing high beams

On Behalf of | Sep 14, 2018 | Car Accidents |

There are many examples of reckless behavior on the road, but some are especially upsetting. For example, some drivers may flash their high beam headlights, for whatever reason, while approaching a vehicle. This can not only startle a driver, but it may leave them unable to see the road and may actually cause a head-on collision with the person who flashed them. Aside from this, some drivers fail to dim their high beam headlights, which are also known as brights, when approaching another vehicle. Drivers who act like this should be held accountable for any suffering that results from an accident they cause.

Sometimes, people flash their high beam headlights because they believe that another vehicle’s headlights are too bright (whether or not this is valid). Or, a driver may flash their high beams in an attempt to be aggressive, for whatever reason. Some drivers may also forget that they have their high beam headlights on and they may accidentally drive by many vehicles without dimming their headlights.

When a driver loses his or her ability to see the road due to being blinded by headlights or any other factor, they may veer into oncoming traffic or swerve off of the road, which can be very dangerous. Unfortunately, some drivers show little regard for the safety of others and this problem can be especially widespread at night. Our law firm believes that traffic crash victims deserve justice and that all legal options should be explored in the wake of a devastating collision.
