Teen Driving Issues / Texting While Driving
Long Island Teen Car Accident Attorney
WERE YOU INJURED IN AN ACCIDENT CAUSED BY A TEEN DRIVER?
Teen drivers account for 11 percent of motor vehicle crash deaths, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Their lack of driving experience and general “I can do anything” attitude puts themselves and other motorists at risk on a daily basis. While driving age laws and encouragement to follow safe driving practices helps curb some of the accidents, it is still an ongoing issue in New York City and throughout the United States.
There are a number of factors that can lead to teen car accidents. Some of the more common activities that lead to distracted drivers and injury include:
- Texting and cell phone use while driving
- Doing drugs, or taking strong prescription drugs, before driving
- Listening to an iPod or the radio too loudly
- Eating or drinking while driving
- Drinking alcohol before driving or while driving
- Failing to watch the road carefully
- Riding in the car with a lot of friends
If you or someone you love sustained serious injuries in a teen car accident, you are legally entitled to recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation, pain and suffering. You may also be able to recover damages for loss of life and funeral expenses if it was a fatal car accident.
