Sorry to hear about it but like others have mentioned, you need to try and keep your emotions out of it and just let him go.

Sounds like an incident I had a few weeks ago. I was coming up to a green light and it turned yellow but I knew I could make the right turn before the stopped traffic started moving, plus they obviously saw me going to take the turn. (Yes I know I should have just waited, first mistake.) So I take the corner and there is a truck in the right lane stopped and as soon as the light turns green he floors it purposely trying to hit me apparently because he is mad I took the right turn on red as his light was turning green. So I floor it to get him off my ass and he does the same and we get up to 50 mph which is the speed limit and he is still on my ass so I get into the left lane and I hear him floor it because it downshifts and then since no one is behind me I hit my brakes pretty hard so he can't really get a look at me while he is passing. I was afraid he was going to start yelling at me or something and just wanted to avoid it. He spent the next mile speeding up and slowing down trying to get next to me so he could yell but I didn't let him and never even saw what he looked like. He had to turn off the road and I was so relieved the "chase" was over. Next time I'm in a rush and know I can make the light before the other traffic starts maybe I'll think twice anyways lol.

Dude, at least you're ok.

The whole thing sucks, especially considering you were trying to do the right thing, or at least at that time it felt like the right thing. It's easy for us to judge you, but none of us were there so it's hard to say what any of us would've done. Get my point?

At least no one got really hurt. But I agree with the others that you should have let him go by you. There are jerk drivers out there, and the trick is to know when you can and can not mess with them. With only two lanes and a divided highway it is a lot easier, but with three or more lanes, or where there are a lot of on ramps/off ramps, or roads with long on/off ramps. Let them go, and let them be someone elses problem.

Sure the guy was an asswipe, but I just don't understand why you blocked him off. You knew that was just going to make things worse...

Just be thankful you didn't get out, that could have been you that got hit by the car instead!

As far as your deductible you're going to have to pay it. Only way around it is to go after the other guys insurance; and good luck with that.

If you're not ready to kick some ass don't go provoke pricks that are ready to kick yours.

Did you live in Florida before? How do you know these creatures so well? I agree completely, there are so many jackasses on the road down here it's unbelievable!

To the OP, sorry to hear about that. Glad to hear you're OK and not too much damage occurred relatively speaking.

I have seen plenty of jerks in all kinds of vehicles, some of them wear suite and tie and drive BMWs too. Two ago I was driving on the left lane of a two-lane one way street, an idiot ( in a Camry) came out from a side street, drove in the wrong way, almost hit me and he gave me the bird. Last night a guy in a MB CLK320 was drinving like 10 feet ahead of me to my left, and all the sudden he cut in front of me and almost caused me to hit his bumper. He didn't even bother to use his turn signal. I really hate jerks when they cut in in front of you without the courtesy of using the blinker.

If my heart I want to shoot those jerks, in my head I just let it go.

+1 - but did you really have to generalize to 'Americans' ? Don't assume that everyone is "sue-happy" in the US.

No need to beat a I have to add my .02 cents and say that was crazy. Things could have definitely turned out a lot worst. I hope you learned something from all of this.

To be fair, this isn't a simple auto insurance claim, this would be a civil suit. Regardless of how you might get into an altercation with someone, it has NEVER become OK for someone to get out of their truck to come beat the ever-lovin' shit out of you. Here's the way a lawyer would see it... by getting out of his truck, the guy in the black SUV is announcing that he is about to do violence to bmwexecutive. In doing so, he has to know he is putting bmwexecutive into a position where he may decide to flee for his personal safety and, on a busy road, this has a high likelihood of leading to a collision. It's no different than if you piss me off for any one of a number of reasons, then I come up to you in a coffee shop and took a swing with a baseball bat and intentionall miss your head by an inch. In the chaos of you jumping off your chair to fight with me, you knock over your coffee onto the person next to you. Who's at fault for hurting the guy next to you? You or me? I personally think bmwexecutive's got a very strong case.

No, we're not. You can't generalize. I don't like to be stereotyped after all the other a-holes that sue for no reason just to make a quick buck.

You can skew all kinds of statistics to make it seem like "all" Americans are suing each other.

"...one study of stereotypes revealed that Americans are generally considered to be friendly, generous, and tolerant, but also arrogant, impatient, and domineering. Asians, on the other hand, were expected to be shrewd and alert, but reserved. Clearly, not all Americans are friendly and generous; and not all Asians are shrewd. If you assume you know what a person is like, and don't look at each person as an individual, you are likely to make errors in your estimates of a person's character."
