Listen to Ron Kramer of Kramer Law Group's interview with Advocate Capital's CEO and Chairmen, Michael J. Swanson as he explains how irrational behavior displayed in road rage crime not only creates medical damages, but other injustices as well for his clients and other victims.
Reports of road rage incidents have recently spiked with speculation to be linked with stress created during the coronavirus pandemic. Even though Utah's travel decreased by an estimated amount of 6.6 billion miles in 2020, the number of fatal accidents per 100 miles increased from 0.75 in 2019 to 0.98 that same year, according to recent data displayed by Utah's Department of Transportation. Ron Kramer observes this trend in a pending case involving five victims shot at as they were traveling to their sites of employment.
In this case, a driver had expressed his dissatisfaction with Kramer’s clients’ driving, at a speed of 70 mph on the freeway, by pulling out a gun and shooting a total of eight bullets at Kramer's clients, critically injuring two of them and nearly striking a third as the bullets grazed his beanie being worn at the time. One of the clients injured was hospitalized for nearly 2 weeks after a bullet came in contact with his spinal cord area, nearly severing it.
