Teenagers Especially at Risk
The road is dangerous enough for drivers of all ages. This is especially for young people. They are often less experienced. This makes them less able to take on challenges on the road. All people have roles in making roadways safer.
Many young people are more likely to drive distracted. Sometimes this means driving with too many friends. In others it means putting on makeup. In far too many, it means using the phone. Phone usage behind the wheel is dangerous for everyone. This is worse when using apps. One of the most popular apps is Snapchat, which may have caused a fatal crash last year.
Philly.com reported on the deadly crash. The fiery explosion took the lives of three young people. Any life lost due to such crashes is unacceptable. Additionally, such a risk is on our nation’s roads each and every day.
What to Do After a Crash Caused by Snapchat.
Families hurt by car crashes have several options. It is vital that the family does not settle with an insurance company first. Before making any decisions other than immediate medical care, an attorney should be consulted. A skilled attorney is key. A lawyer trained in car accident cases is most likely to help.
Ehline Law’s attorneys are second to none. We tacked many similar cases in the past. Our firm is also one of the first to understand how certain apps make crashes more likely. We studied the Philadelphia Snapchat case intently to infer the root causes.
