How to reduce car accidents involving teen drivers

Teens in Ohio can be risky drivers. They lack car control experience, are prone to distractions and sometimes display poor judgment. Because of this, they can endanger themselves and others on the road.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 1,972 teen drivers were involved in deadly car crashes in 2015. Another 99,000 teen drivers were injured in accidents that same year. In fact, the problem is so severe that motor vehicle accidents are now the top cause of death for American teens ages 15 to 18 years old.

Traffic safety experts say there are several common causes for car accidents involving teen drivers. These causes include distractions, poor judgment, inclement weather and an overall lack of driving experience. To help reduce teen-related accidents, several companies are now offering advanced driving courses just for teens. These courses offer more real-world training than traditional driving school classes and are designed to help teen drivers become safer and more competent behind the wheel.

For example, the Tire Rack Street Survival course has a wet skid pad that accurately simulates slippery road conditions as well as a slalom that teaches them the basics of weight transfer. The course also teaches students how to execute important crash avoidance maneuvers, such as quick lane changes and panic stops.

Someone who has been injured in a motor vehicle accident may have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit seeking compensation for damages. Typical damages sought in this type of suit include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and property loss. An attorney could help prepare the claim and work to negotiate a fair settlement with the at-fault driver's insurance company.
