The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has released its first ever list of top safety picks for teen drivers. Factors for inclusion on this list included safety ratings, limited horsepower, and affordability – the last factor based on an IIHS phone survey that found over 80 percent of teens’ first cars are purchased used.
The list, available on the IIHS website, includes 50 vehicles in a range of model years and prices.
It is important to remember that choosing a safer car for your teen driver is not a guarantee against serious injury in an accident. And, if your teenager has been involved in a car accident, you need an experienced and dedicated attorney on your side as soon as possible to help ensure fair treatment and proper compensation.
Insurance companies are often quick to blame teens for accidents and may try to minimize your family’s compensation based on unfounded claims. The only way to make sure your family is not cheated out of the full compensation you deserve is by working with an attorney who holds your best interests as a top priority.
