Our teen was hurt in an accident that wasn't her fault, but the other driver and their insurance company are trying to claim she was responsible for the crash because she's a new driver. How can we prove that the other driver is liable?

Teen Driver After a Two-Car WreckAccording to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), teens are more likely to be involved in a crash than drivers from any other age group—and their inexperience is often to blame. While that doesn't mean that all teenagers are bad or dangerous drivers, it does make it easier for other motorists—and their insurance companies—to claim that the teen was the one responsible for causing an accident. Fortunately, if your teen was hurt in a crash that wasn't their fault, the experienced injury recovery professionals with the Inland Empire Law Group can fight to establish the other driver's liability and recover the compensation your child needs and deserves for their injuries.

Attorneys Can Help Determine Which Party Was Liable for an Accident

For example, we can conduct a thorough investigation into the crash, gather valuable evidence, interview witnesses, and hire accident reconstructionists or other experts to testify on your teen's behalf. Things like great attendance and performance in school, good student auto insurance discounts, successfully completed internships, and other accomplishments can also be used to show that your teenager has good character and is a responsible person.

After a serious accident, your teen may be entitled to compensation for a wide range of economic and non-economic damages. In addition to compensation for all accident-related medical expenses, financial recovery may include lost wages if your teen missed work because of the crash, as well as damages for physical pain and suffering, emotional anguish, scarring or disfigurement, and more.
