The legal driving age for most states is 18 – however, due to peer pressure and the feeling of wanting to be independent, many teens may get behind the wheel and drive a vehicle even under their own parent’s noses. This usually happens over school or college holidays and could be due to the fact that they may want to go out with friends or attend a party. This presents a dual problem because the teen that drives is most likely going to do so while inebriated or under the influence of drugs such as marijuana or illegal pills. Accidents caused by teens tend to be challenging as our attorneys must establish a clear pattern of negligence before the case is accepted as viable. That said, if you were in an accident and got injured by a minor or teenager, you may be able to recover money damages, and we’re here to help with that.

Minors Don’t Have Car Insurance – Who’s Liable for My Accident?
Minors are also less likely to have auto insurance: however, should they cause an accident, the car owner’s insurance will kick in to pay for your damages. That said, the car owner may try to get out of paying for said damages because they will assert that the minor never should have been driving the vehicle in the first place as they never gave permission for them to do so.
