(LegalLaw247.com, February 20, 2013 ) Sacramento, CA – In the past couple of years there have been approximately 187,000 teenage drivers injured in automobile accidents across the United States. In California alone there were around 40,000 accidents last year. With this information the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has deducted that motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for 15 to 20 year olds in the United States.

More recently a teenage driver was thrown from the back seat of a speeding car while merging from eastbound I-80 to southbound I-5; she was not wearing a seatbelt. She was traveling with three others in the vehicle, all of which were wearing a seatbelt. These teens were rushed to a nearby hospital sustaining injuries.
Studies show that immaturity and inexperience are two contributing factors in most teen driving fatalities. Not to mention polls saying that around 17 percent of all teens enjoy speeding, 44 percent of teens drive safer without friends in the car, and over half teen drivers text and talk while driving. These teens clearly fell into these percentages. If they would have simply abided by the speed limit and all worn seatbelts, they likely would have all survived.
Individuals injured in California teenage driver accidents may be eligible for compensation of medical expenses and damages due to the negligence of another individual. An experienced California auto accident attorney will advise individuals on the proper course of legal action to take to achieve the compensation you deserve.
