Teens and Car Accidents

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

In the Bronx and elsewhere in the United States, teens are much more likely to sustain serious personal injury in car accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), teens are involved in three times as many fatal auto accidents as adults, making car accidents the leading cause of death for people under the age of 20 in the U.S.

If you have a teen that has been injured or killed in a car accident, you deserve justice. Bronx personal injury lawyer Charles N. Rock can investigate the cause of your teen’s accident, establish liability, and help your family seek the compensation necessary to recover.

The NHTSA reports that the leading causes of auto accidents involving teen drivers are:

  • Inexperience
  • Driver distraction
  • Speeding
  • Drug and alcohol use

Teens sometimes lack the maturity necessary to safely operate a vehicle, but this does not mean they are automatically to blame for an accident. Lawyer Charles Rock can investigate your teen’s accident to determine where liability should lie, and will be essential in helping your family pursue the compensation you deserve.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident in or around the Bronx, New York, please contact Charles N. Rock to schedule a free personal injury consultation today with our lawyer.
