This week, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) launched its National Teen Driver Safety Week campaign to raise awareness about car accidents involving young motorists.
Because auto accidents are the leading cause of death for 14-18 year olds in America, it becomes crucial to educate teens and parents about making auto safety a priority and addressing some of the common causes of teen driver car accidents.
Below are some of the safety issues covered by the campaign:
Car accidents happen all the time, and for a lot of different reasons. When these accidents are caused by negligence or wrongful acts, however, drivers can be held fully accountable for the damages they case - either civilly, criminally, or both. To protect teen drivers from making life-changing mistakes, safety experts encourage parents to speak candidly with their children and to clearly establish rules - rules like never driving distracted, never driving drunk, and never speeding.
All too often, accident victims are steamrolled by insurance companies determined to minimize or deny their claims. Don't let this happen to you. Hire us to fight for the compensation you deserve.
