Teen Driver Risk

Inexperienced Teen Drivers Pose a Risk to Others on Florida Roads

All drivers are potentially dangerous, possibly causing serious Florida car accidents involving you or your family members. These wrecks can cause serious injuries, such as broken bones or internal bleeding, and can even result in loss of life.

Though any driver can cause a Florida car wreck, there are some that are more prone to do so than others. Chief among this type are teen drivers, whose inexperience and brash attitudes make them prime candidates to trigger dangerous crashes. If you are a teen driver or have children that are please read our safe driving resources for teen drivers.

Teen drivers, who do not have the years of experience behind the wheel that is crucial for safe driving, are susceptible to:

  • Aggressive driving
  • Speeding
  • Texting and driving
  • Driving under the influence
  • Inattentive driving
  • And more

All these behaviors can lead to Florida car crashes that can have serious consequences for those involved. Since the teen drivers are the ones most often negligent in these instances, you and your family may be eligible to recover damages as a result.

The compensation you may be able to receive in these cases, from a settlement or jury verdict, can include money for medical bills, ongoing care or physical therapy, missed time at work, home restoration or funeral expenses and very real instances of pain or emotional suffering.
