What Leads to Teen Driving Accidents?
As a parent or legal guardian to a teenager, perhaps one of your worst nightmares is getting a call about your teen being involved in a car accident. While the teenage driver is not always at fault, accidents like rear-end or sideswipe collisions often occur due to distracted driving. Instead of paying attention to the road, the driver could be messing with the radio, talking to friends, or even texting and driving.
Teen drivers suffer from the same kind of injuries as adult drivers, including concussions, lacerations and scars, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, internal organ damage, broken bones, and post-traumatic stress disorder. If your teen has been injured in a car accident, they have legal rights to fair compensation.
