Teen Driver Accidents in Los Angeles

Working Tirelessly on Your Behalf for Compensation

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), almost 2,400 teenagers between the ages of 13 and 19 were killed in motor vehicle accidents during 2019. That same year, about 258,000 teens were treated in emergency rooms for injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents. The CDC also states that drivers in this age group are three times as likely as drivers in their 20s or older to be involved in a fatal car accident.

Parental Liability in Teen Driver Accidents

Drivers who are under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian sign a consent form that allows them to drive. Signing this form means that parents must assume liability for accidents caused by their teen drivers. Parental liability ends when the child turns 18 or if the parent withdraws consent. If parental consent is withdrawn, the teen would immediately lose all driving privileges.
