Joplin, MO (PRWEB) September 21, 2009
Fall is upon us, and that means our high school teens are back in the classroom. Teens are on the road in large numbers getting to and from school, with all the excitement the new school year brings, but also the attendant risks and distractions that come along with new things like driving on your own for the first time or showing up for school in your own car.
Aaron Sachs law firm, which limits its practice to personal injury cases, workers' compensation and disability claims, has a history of sponsoring injury-prevention assemblies and activities for youngsters of high school age. Last year at this time, Sachs' firm, which has offices in Joplin, Springfield, Columbia and Cape Girardeau, sponsored a series of teen-safety high school assemblies, for teenage drivers in the Springfield area.
This year, it's Joplin's turn. Next Friday morning, September 25th, Sachs' office will be joining with KODE and KOMU and the Missouri State Highway Patrol to provide an opportunity for Joplin teenagers to learn about driving safety techniques in a series of workshops, to be held at Joplin High School at 2104 Indiana Avenue. The classes will assemble at 9:22 a.m., 10:14 a.m. and 11:06 a.m.
Sachs comments: "In 2007, every thirty minutes in Missouri, one person died or was hurt in a traffic crash involving a young driver. Statistics prove that inexperienced drivers are far more likely to be involved in accidents than older drivers. If you also take into account the fact that texting while driving can make you 23 times more likely to be in an accident, it has to plain to anyone that, as a community, we need to step up and bring home to our high school students the importance of safe driving."
Aaron Sachs Associates' personal injury law offices are located in Springfield, Columbia, Cape Girardeau and Joplin. Their community-service outreach program is detailed on their website: http://www.autoinjury.com under the "community service" header.
