Study indicates ADHD is a major factor in teen car accidents

Louisiana residents who share the road with teen drivers will be understandably concerned about their behavior behind the wheel, whether they are safe drivers and that they are not operating the vehicle in a reckless manner. Even when teens are following all the rules and doing their best to maintain safe driving practices, their inexperience is a worry. Other factors are relevant when there is an accident. As a new study indicates, teens who are dealing with attention deficit disorder/hyperactivity disorder, commonly known as "ADHD," are more prone to being in a crash when compared with teens who do not have ADHD. This is particularly a problem immediately after they receive their driver's license.

Passenger critically injured after being ejected in car accident

When drivers in Lake Charles and across Louisiana do not adhere to the rules of the road, it inevitably puts others in danger. In car accidents caused in these circumstances, those who are hit can suffer critical injuries and even death.

Legal help to fight negligent truck companies

Louisianans can suffer catastrophic injuries and fatalities in any kind of auto accident, but some of the most dangerous wrecks are those that involve large trucks. These vehicles perform a desperately needed service in making deliveries of various items across the nation, however this fact does not eliminate the dangers inherent with them. Because they are so massive, travel at significant speeds, and their drivers are required to go great distances, these trucks can cause severe damage in an accident.

In 2019, distracted driver incidents continue to rise

For Louisianans and people across the nation, discussions about encountering a distracted driver are becoming a constant part of everyday life. This is largely because there are so many people who are getting behind the wheel and then decide they can multitask by using a device or taking part in other activities.

Fatal auto accidents could increase with ride-sharing

Convenience and safety are two reasons for people in Louisiana to use ridesharing services. Rather than drive themselves, there are benefits to using these apps. If, for example, a person has a night out and drinks alcohol, it is preferable to let someone else drive rather than run the risk of causing an accident and being arrested for driving under the influence. However, with any innovation, there are inevitable risks.

Distracted teens at substantially higher auto accident risk

Teen drivers in Louisiana and across the nation will not have experience on their side when they are behind the wheel. That lack of driving experience lends itself to mistakes, like driving distracted, that can cause an auto accident.. After an auto accident with a teen, determining if it was due to distraction can be a key point for a victim to consider when evaluating options.
