Few things have the ability to keep a parent up at night like the thought of their teenager being involved in a serious or fatal New York car accident. As a parent you must strike that difficult balance between protecting your child from serious harm and allowing your child the freedom to grow into an independent adult. Below are some ways that you might consider accomplishing those often competing goals.

First, teach your child about the very real dangers of driving. Whether you use a formal driver's education program, internet resources, or other methods, it is important to let your child know what can happen if he or she speeds, texts and drives, or engages in reckless behavior.

Next, consider using technology to control your child's behavior. Technology exists that allows you to control speed, music volume and other factors that could contribute to accidents.

Finally, teach your child what to do if he or she is in a New York accident. Tell your child that if he or she is involved in any kind of accident then there are three calls that need to be made. The first is to 911 for the police and emergency medical help. The next is to you so that you can be there for support and help. The final call is to an experienced New York accident attorney who can advise your family about your teen's legal right to recovery.

For more information, please contact a New York accident lawyer at 1-800-PAGAN-911 for a free consultation.
