The Greatest Risk For Teenage Drivers? Lack of Experience
Adolescents are known to take chances, succumb to peer pressure, overestimate their abilities, and have emotional mood swings. Each of these behaviors can increase the likelihood for the teenage driver to be involved in an automobile crash. Investigations have shown that “the cause of teenage crashes is not the skill with which they can drive, but the judgment they exercise while driving,” according to an editorial in the Journal of Adolescent Health.

Dr. Simons-Morton of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development has concluded from research that “safe driving judgment, as with all complex activities, comes only with experience.”

Inexperienced drivers are left with a Catch-22: Lack of experience makes puts them at high risk of being involved in an accident, and the only way to improve as a driver is more experience. One of the safest methods to increase experience for new teen drivers is supervised driving sessions with their parents, before and after they have obtained their license. This provides a real-time, constructive environment in which to get hands-on experience, all while being monitored by their parents, legal guardian, or other knowledgable driver with years of experience under their belt. By continuing supervised driving practice sessions, this can help mitigate risks for your children and loved ones.

Bobby B. shares his Reyes Browne Reilley experience with our Dallas, TX staff of professional personal injury lawyers while helping him recover from damages stemming from a major car crash on the Sam Rayburn Tollway.

“I was on my way home from work one day and I was on the Sam Rayburn Tollway, and I’d caught a flat. The Sam Rayburn Tollway, it’s pretty dangerous, I mean, people fly. You know, they do 80, 90, 100. I caught a flat, so I immediately put my hazards on and put my blinkers on. I started getting over and I started noticing in my rear view mirror that someone was getting over and they weren’t paying attention, and I kept trying to get out of their way, but they ended up hitting me at 80, 90 miles an hour.

“So, on February 2nd, I was on my lunch break, got t-boned on my left passenger’s side, ended up hurting my back. Had to go to therapy. Was in therapy for about three, four months. It was really hard for me and my family. I have a 6-year-old step-daughter who saw all of us go into a lot of pain and a lot of stress just because I was without a vehicle for a long time.

Not every personal injury law firm is the same. Some aim for the easiest and fastest route to a settlement check, regardless of their client’s needs. More often than not, these kinds of firms prefer to write settlement letters instead of actually preparing each case for court. These types of law firms are called personal injury settlement mills (or factories), and insurance companies love them.

How to Spot a Personal Injury Settlement Mill

There are several traits that make these kinds of law firms stand out. Because they focus more on making a quick buck instead of client satisfaction, advertising is the lifeblood of the typical settlement mill law firm. The louder and more obnoxious the TV ads, the more likely you are looking at a settlement mill law firm.

“My accident happened back in December the 13 of ’15. I was in accident. Me and my son, I had just picked him up from work that morning and we’re sitting there at the stoplight and next thing we know that we had a crash. I didn’t know had happened, still dark. So, I didn’t hear no skid marks, no thing. Next thing I know, it was just like, “Bam!” And I felt kind of numb like at first. So, I asked my son, “What happened?” You know? He said, “I don’t know.” And so, I kind of get out and I see this truck behind me. I mean, crashed in. It hit so hard until it knocked the … bent the floor of the car. It had bent the floor.

Winter Driving Safety Tips Personal Injury Lawyer
Winter is coming.The Lone Star State is known for its erratic weather changes, and this week was no exception. Texans got a taste of winter this week with a northern storm that brought snow to the panhandle and freeze warnings to the DFW. As you crank up the thermostat inside your home, it’s important to be aware of the hazardous effects taking toll on your vehicle as well. Help keep you and your loved ones safe by following these winter driving safety tips.

Check Your Tire Pressure

Tire pressure can be difficult to detect with a naked eye, so make sure to look out for your car’s pressure alert light. Cold air lowers tire pressure about a pound per square inch (p.s.i.) for every 10-degree change. This means that extreme dips in temperature overnight can leave your tires under-inflated for the morning commute and affect overall performance. Sometimes even a quick drive to the gas station could warm your tires enough to register a false positive. Refill air in your tires to make sure they are in top shape.
