- Teens Likely to be Involved in Accidents During Summer
Memorial Day kicked off what the National Safety Council calls the 100 deadliest days for teen drivers, which is a period of time in which the most fatal teen driving accidents occur.
From Memorial through Labor Day, teens are much more likely to be behind the wheel, which puts them in greater danger.
At Phillips Law Group, we have experience handling personal injury claims and can help if you have been injured in an accident involving a teen driver.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, during summer 2012, nearly 1,000 people were killed in automotive accidents involving teen drivers. More than half of the victims were teens.
Although being out of school is the primary reason why teens are more likely to be on the road, many are also driving more frequently than before. Additionally, some teens may be venturing out to new destinations and more likely to be driving with friends in the vehicle.
The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention note that teens are more likely to be involved in car crashes when there are more passengers in the vehicle. It is also the reason that many states have limitations on whom teen drivers may carry as passengers in their vehicle.
Passengers increase the risk of a teen driver being involved in a fatal crash by approximately 44 percent, according to the National Safety Council. Horseplay, loud conversations and cellphone use can often distract a teen driver.
It is very important that parents talk to their teens about safe driving habits and the risks of distracted driving.
At Phillips Law Group, our accident lawyers believe in obtaining justice on behalf of those who have been injured as a result of a careless driver. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a car wreck, the victim may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and more.

A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
Jasmine helped me so so much I want to thank her ! And also Aaron , i was always scared after an accident , knowing I would have to deal with lawyers but not here . Luckily I’ve only been in 3 accidents but this time it was fast and easy . And i received all the treatments I needed to help me recover ! Thank you Jasmine and Aaron!
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
