Motor vehicle accidents remain the top cause of teen deaths throughout the United States, despite efforts made to make the roads safer for young people. Governors Highway Safety Association is calling for new efforts aimed at preventing deadly accidents involving teenage drivers. The report was written by experts in teen driving and was guided by a panel with special experience in teen crash risks. It focuses on how adults who influence teenagers can help to stop dangerous behaviors, and how states can partner with these adults in an effort to reduce collision risks.
Crashes involving teen drivers are devastating, as these young people often injure their friends or family members who are in the car with them, along with injuring strangers. Anyone who is a victim of a crash as a direct result of a negligent, careless, or illegal action by a teenage driver must understand his or her rights. An Atlanta car accident lawyer can provide help to motorists who have been harmed. You may be entitled to receive monetary compensation from the teen’s insurer for all of the damages and losses you have been forced to endure because of the collision.
