When a teenager causes a car accident

Getting a driver's license is a right of passage for many teenagers in the state of New York. Depending on where one lives, it is something that one might use frequently, or it is something one might only use on occasion. No matter how much time teenagers spend behind the wheel, there is still a lack of experience due to their young age that often results in them being involved in auto collisions. When a teenager causes a car accident, who is responsible for any victims' losses?

Accidents involving teenagers happen more often than people think. Many of these collisions occur due to teens speeding, driving recklessly, being inexperienced or being distracted when behind the wheel. According to the state of New York, most accidents involving teenagers happen at night.

New York is a no-fault state. This means that, when a collision occurs, drivers are supposed to turn to their own insurance providers for relief. Unfortunately, in doing so, some victims may find that they struggle to achieve fair and full compensation for all of their losses. Legal counsel may help victims fight their insurance providers for relief. Where appropriate, claims may be filed against the responsible party/owner of the teenager's vehicle.

Pursuing relief following a car accident is not necessarily an easy thing. Insurance providers want to pay out as little as possible, and no-fault laws make it difficult to seek compensation from those technically responsible. Thankfully, New York residents who have suffered injuries in collisions with teenagers can turn to legal counsel for assistance, seeking damages for their losses.
