Teenagers have the highest car accident rate of any group in the United States, and a recent study reveals just how dangerous new teenager drivers can be.
Philadelphia accident attorney Flager and Yockey urges parents of teen drivers to take note of a study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. Researchers found that teen drivers are about 50 percent more likely to crash in the first month of driving than they are after a full year of experience driving on their own. Furthermore, the young drivers are nearly twice as likely to become involved in an auto accident as they are after two full years of experience, according to the study.
At the Law Offices of Flager Yockey, the personal injury lawyers in Philadelphia, PA., have seen the impact of serious car accidents first-hand. A car accident involving a teen-ager can be particularly traumatic, and result in significant losses, both emotional and financial. According to information on the law firm’s website, www.flageryockey.com , there are more than 30,000 fatal car accidents and millions of injuries due to car wrecks each year in the United States.
