Inexperienced Drivers and Auto Accidents
Teenagers have higher insurance premiums for a reason. They are inexperienced. They tend to have lower impulse control and inferior judgment. The increasing amount of distractions has not helped to reduce the rate of teen driving accidents. A significant percentage of distracted driving accidents are teen driving accidents, thanks to cellphones, digital music players, video games and more. Teenagers are more likely to talk on or send text messages on cellphones while behind the wheel, meaning our attorneys must take greater care to review cellphone records and witness statements in these types of cases.
When Teenagers are the Victims of Motor Vehicle Accidents
The assumption should never automatically be made that, if a teenager was involved in an auto accident, the teenager is to blame for the accident. Teenagers may be victims as well, whether because of the negligence of a teenage friend who was driving the vehicle, or because of the negligence of the driver of another vehicle.
