If you're a parent, you know the worry that comes with having a teen driver. If you're a teenager, you've probably heard lectures about the dangers of the road. Even with the best of intentions, teens are more likely to be involved in a car accident than an adult driver.

So what do you do if you were the innocent victim of a car accident that involved a teenage driver?

What to Do if You Were Injured in a Car Accident Involving a Teen Driver

There are certain steps you should take immediately after an accident. These include:

  • Calling 911
  • Taking photographs and video of the scene
  • Getting insurance-related information from the other driver
  • Additional details can be found here: Steps to Take After a Car Accident

But what then? Should you talk to the other driver's insurance company? What do you do if you're asked to make a recorded statement or sign papers?

It's in your best interest to talk to an attorney. At our law firm, we work to recover money to help pay for your medical treatment and lost wages. We handle the other driver's insurance company.

Most importantly, we take the weight of the accident off your shoulders, so you can focus on your recovery.

Law Firm Reviews

My attorney took time to put everything out to me in laymen terms. He let me know what to expect, what the time frame would be, and made sure I understood everything. My attorneys would always, always, always call if anything came up.
