Teens often involved in distracted driving accidents

Distracted driving -- everyone does it at some point. Teenagers do tend to be the biggest culprits, though. As a result, every year, quite a few teenagers in Maryland are involved in distracted driving accidents.

According to current statistics, roughly nine people die in distracted driving-related accidents every day in the United States. More than 1,000 people suffer injuries in such events on a daily basis. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety says that drivers between the ages of 16 and 19 are behind many of these accidents, and it is not because they are all using their cellphones while driving. Teenage drivers are more likely to be distracted by their passengers than anything else.

Those who have suffered losses due to the actions of distracted teenage drivers may feel out of luck when it comes to seeking compensation for their losses. Thankfully, driver age has nothing to do with the ability of victims to seek relief. It is possible to seek compensation by working to settle with the responsible party's insurance provider or by filing legal claims against the vehicle's owner -- usually the teen's parents or guardian.

Maryland residents who have been involved in distracted driving accidents or who have lost loved ones in such incidents can turn to legal counsel for assistance if they wish to pursue maximum relief for their losses. Personal injury and wrongful death cases can often be settled without having to set foot in a courtroom. If that proves ineffective, then the issue can be litigated in civil court.
