Teen Drivers Are at an Increased Risk of Traffic Accidents
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the risk of a traffic accident is higher for teen drivers than any other age group. This can affect families if their teen was involved in a teen driving accident or if another family member suffered injuries in an accident caused by a negligent teen driver.
Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to:
● Take legal action on behalf of your teen under 18 years old
● File an insurance claim against another teen’s policy to recover compensation for your teen’s care
● Hold a teen accountable for the accident and the injuries you suffered
Georgia has taken steps to reduce the incidence of teen driving accidents through the Teenage and Adult Driver Responsibility Act (TADRA), according to the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS). This is a graduated driver license program that requires teens to prove:
● They received proper instruction for driving
● They have the experience necessary to drive safely
● They do not engage in high-risk situations
To get and keep their driver’s license, teens in Georgia must follow strict rules about where they can drive, when, and with whom in the car. This program seeks to reduce the number of teen driving accidents, although they certainly still occur.

Proving Your Damages in a Warner Robins Teen Driver Case
Bader Scott Injury Lawyers will document your injuries, pain and suffering, expenses, financial losses, and other damages as a part of building a compelling argument for compensation in your case. We will use this evidence to show the insurance company or judge and jury the value of your damages and what a fair settlement might look like. We will also use it to determine if the settlement offer from the insurer will meet your needs or not. We do not have to accept an unjust offer.
The damages we will seek on your behalf may include past, current, and future losses such as:
● Injury stabilization, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation expenses
● Related medical expenses
● Lost wages and other income
● Diminished ability to work
● Property damages
● Additional economic losses
● Pain and suffering damages
● Other intangible losses
When an accident victim dies from their injuries, Georgia law allows certain family members to seek both the damages the victim could have recovered as well as wrongful death damages that cover their own losses. The rules for who qualifies are outlined in O.C.G.A. §51-4-2, and we can help you understand if this statute applies to you.
Statute of Limitations on Filing a Civil Lawsuit in Georgia
Like other states, Georgia has a statute of limitations in place for personal injury lawsuits, including traffic accident cases. This sets the deadline for filing the initial paperwork and naming the at-fault motorist as the defendant in your civil claim.
Under O.C.G.A. §9-3-33, there is a two-year time limit that generally applies to personal injury cases. Failing to file the appropriate paperwork by the second anniversary of your accident could mean being barred from taking your case to trial and seeking recovery through legal means. This could severely impact your ability to recover a fair payout in your case. Meeting the applicable deadlines in your case is vital to a successful payout.
