Amanda Bynes' most recent law-breaking instances behind the wheel, with the actress apparently driving while her license was suspended for two earlier hit-and-run charges, is still making headlines according to Reuters. But while Byne's may be America's favorite unsafe driver, she is by no means the only one – and lawyers with Manhattan Accident Attorneys warn victims should know their rights.
Manhattan Accident Attorneys is a website formed to help those who are injured in accidents connect with qualified lawyers and get the advice they need about their legal options for compensation. A spokesperson for the group, Julia Carter, says that the website offers a free service in order to make legal help more accessible.
“After an accident many people feel like they don't know what to do,” Carter said. “It can be intimidating to start looking up lawyers, and people worry about the cost. We will help you find the right lawyer for free, and get you a free consultation.”
Bynes, who starred in the teen movie hit Easy A, has had a string of previous driving arrests, ranging from talking on her cell phone while driving to hit-and-run and DUI charges. Her license was suspended in early September, and she was pulled over for driving without her headlights on later that month.
“These kinds of tickets are common,” said Carter. “Every day, people drive drunk or recklessly all over this country, or they just don't pay attention. Too often, the media coverage focuses on the penalties the drivers face, instead of the compensation the victims deserve.”
Carter says that anyone who is involved in a car accident should talk to a lawyer, ever if their injuries are very minor.
“Never sign anything till you've spoken to an attorney,” she said. “It's better to know all your options first.”
