Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among teens in the U.S. – killing close to 6,000 every year. According to national statistics, teen deaths as a result of automobile accidents exceed homicides and suicides.
Los Angeles personal injury lawyer, Peter Steinberg of Steinberg & Spencer sees the evidence of these alarming statistics every day in his practice. “As personal injury lawyers, we get involved after-the-fact; most often tragedy has struck and the outcome is really about mitigating unimaginable losses and providing our clients with closure,” says Steinberg. What we really want to do is get involved before these tragedies occur. That was the motivation behind the publication of their new Parent Guide and contract on “Keeping Your Teen Driver Safe.”
Steinberg states that 89% of teens say their parents have the biggest influence on their driving behavior. “It just made sense to write the guide to help educate parents as to how to talk to their teens,” said Steinberg. We felt that had more promise of making an impact than writing the guide for the teens themselves.
The Steinberg firm is planning a series of parent safety guides and they have set up a facebook page to deliver them. All guides will be available at no cost as free downloads on their page – Los Angeles Parent Safety Guides. Steinberg further discusses his reason for creating the Parent Guide and contract on his YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/steinbergspencer.
In addition to facts and statistics about teens and driving, this first guide also includes a section on how to talk to your teen. The real heart of the guide is the parent – teen driving contract where teens are asked to adhere to the agreement in writing.
In addition to being available on facebook, the guide is also on their website at http://www.SteinbergSpencer.com.
