Sharing the road with teenage drivers is an inevitable part of life for most Illinois residents, but even the safest, most conscientious teen drivers present a threat to the public due to a lack of experience. While this inexperience can make drivers less sure of what to do in the event of a car wreck or otherwise impact their judgment, many teen drivers are engaging in behaviors that make them even more dangerous to the motoring public. At the Law Office of Kerley & Associated, we understand that texting and driving continues to be a major problem among teenagers, and we have helped many people injured in distracted driving car crashes pursue appropriate recourse in the aftermath.
