Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Teen Car AccidentsPractically every teenager dreams of the day they can finally get their license. All while many parents may initially feel reluctant to let their children drive, they usually give in hoping there child will be safe on the road. Although many teenagers are safe drivers, their lack of experience can be a serious threat to their safety on the road. The joy and freedom that comes with a new license can quickly disappear in the wake of a serious car accident. Lives can be endangered, vehicles destroyed, and almost all participants in accident suffer some sort of trauma. If you or someone you know has been involved in a teen car accident, it may be in your best interest to reach out to Cohen & Cohen, a trusted and experienced law firm that has been dealing with these types of cases in the DMV area for years.

Causes of Teen Car Accidents

There are many different reasons for the cause of teenage car accidents. Driving on the roads can be unpredictable, and sometimes an accident occurs out of nowhere as a result of uncontrollable factors such as, say for example, extreme weather patterns. Other times, however, there are clear causes of these accidents that can be avoided. Some of the more common causes of teen car accidents include, but are not limited to:

  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Texting and driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Inexperienced driving
  • Reckless driving

These causes all can result in serious damage, both to the cars and people involved.

Teenage Car Accident Statistics

Sometimes, it is important to look at the numbers to realize how grave a situation is. Teenagers get into car accidents at a disproportionate rate to their adult driver counterparts.

  • According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, sixteen to nineteen year olds were the demographic most likely to experience an automobile crash.
  • Teenage drivers are almost three times more likely to experience some sort of accident than those drivers over the age of twenty.
  • While adolescents aged fifteen to nineteen make up a mere seven percent of the population, they make up eleven percent of the overall cost of car accident injuries.
  • In 2013, teenage drivers wracked up approximately ten billion dollars in fees — such as medical and damages — as a result of car accidents they were involved in.

It is clear that teenagers risk their safety more than any other group of drivers. For this reason, it is especially important that they have representation in court setting.

However, that being said, teenagers — like any other drivers on the road — can also suffer from accidents caused by experienced drivers as well. Their age is not a direct qualifier for culpability. In any case, it is critical that all parties involved seek out professional legal counsel in order to ensure they receive the just compensation they deserve.

If you or someone you love feels that the above conditions apply to them, do not hesitate to contact Cohen & Cohen and we will happily set you up with one of our many skilled lawyers who can help fight by your side in court.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
