Houston Teen Driving Accident Lawyer

The responsibility of operating a motor vehicle is a big one. All too often, it’s a responsibility that is not fully understood and appreciated by young, inexperienced drivers. In fact, out of all the age groups, drivers ages 16 to 19 face the greatest risk of getting into an accident, according to statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Whether the teen driver who hit you was distracted, speeding, or otherwise behaving recklessly, you need to speak with an experienced attorney about your legal rights. At The Law Offices of Hilda Sibrian, we are committed to helping accident victims pursue the full compensation they need after crashes involving teenage drivers. 

Our Houston teen driving accident lawyers have the skills and the resources to identify all possible sources of compensation in these types of crashes and fight for the full amount you deserve. Please contact us today to set up a free consultation with a trusted personal injury lawyer.

Why Do Teen Drivers Cause Crashes?

Although our attorneys have found that every car accident injury case we handle is different, there are some common causes of crashes involving teen drivers. These include:  

• Texting and driving

• Talking on the phone while driving

• Distractions from teen passengers

• Underage drinking and driving

• Speeding or driving too fast for conditions

• Drowsy driving

• Tailgating or following too closely

• Failing to obey traffic signs or signals

If any type of negligent or reckless behavior was to blame for your motor vehicle accident, you should learn about your right to demand compensation for the damages you have suffered. Contact The Law Offices of Hilda Sibrian today to talk about the details of your wreck and learn how we can help. 

Compensation for Your Losses in a Teen Distracted Driving Accident

After an accident, victims can fight to hold the at-fault party responsible for all damages sustained as a result of the crash. Depending on the circumstances of your auto accident, this may include payment for:

• Your medical bills, including the costs of hospital stays, doctor visits, surgeries, rehabilitative therapy, medicines, assistive mobility devices such as wheelchairs

• Future medical expenses that you can expect to incur as a result of your injuries

• Modifications to your home to accommodate any injuries or disabilities related to the accident

• Lost income for the time missed from work

• Reduction in future earning capacity if you cannot return to your old job or are forced to take a lesser paying job due to your injuries

• Physical and mental pain and suffering

Our Houston teen driving accident lawyers work with medical specialists, financial planners, and other experts to accurately calculate the full cost of your injuries, both now and in the future. Our goal is to demand maximum compensation so you do not face any financial hardships related to a crash that was not your fault.

How Our Lawyers Investigate Teen Driving Accidents

As experienced personal injury attorneys, we have the knowledge and the resources to thoroughly investigate your crash and determine all possible liable parties. Some of the evidence we may gather as we investigate your crash includes:

• Photos from the crash scene of the vehicles involved, the roadway, and your injuries

• Video surveillance from nearby businesses and traffic cameras

• Statements from witnesses indicating who was at fault for the crash

• Accident reports from responding law enforcement agencies

• Cellphone records if we believe the driver was using the phone at the time of the crash

• Blood alcohol test results if the driver was deemed intoxicated

We may also hire accident reconstruction experts to investigate the scene of the collision, review all the evidence, and piece together exactly what happened. Ultimately, our legal team will build a strong case to show who was at fault for the crash.

In addition, we will thoroughly document your injuries and the losses you have suffered to ensure we are demanding the full and fair compensation you deserve.

Teen Driver Car Accident Statistics

There are so many stereotypes about teenage drivers. Unfortunately, there are also many statistics on teen driving accidents. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that: 

• 2,433 teens ages 16 to 19 were killed in car accidents in the U.S. in 2016.

• 292,742 teens were treated in emergency rooms for injuries suffered in car accidents in 2016.

• Teens ages 15 to 19 accounted for about $13.6 billion in motor vehicle accident injuries in 2016.

• Teen drivers are almost three times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than drivers age 20 and older.

• Teenage boys face a car accident fatality rate that is twice that of teenage girls. 

• Teenage drivers are more likely to be involved in a crash when they have teen passengers, and that risk goes up with the number of teen passengers. 

• The first few months of driving are the most dangerous. Drivers ages 16 and 17 are much more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than 18- and 19-year-olds.

If you or a loved one has been in a crash involving a teen driver, you should not hesitate to seek legal advice. Our knowledgeable Houston teen driving accident attorneys can meet with you in person to discuss the details of your case and go over your legal rights.
