We’ve officially entered the 100 Deadliest Days of the year—between Memorial Day and Labor Day, when there is a serious increase in fatal car crashes, especially among teenage drivers. Other factors associated with summer also conspire to raise the number of car accidents, including:

  • More drivers on the road for summer travels and activities (some of whom won’t know where they are going and might be lost)
  • More bicyclists (many of them children) and motorcycle riders on the road
  • Greater number of road construction projects during the warm weather
  • Barbecues, summer picnics, and other social occasions increase the possibility of drivers on the road while under the influence of alcohol.

Teen Troubles

Why are teens at such high risk for being in and causing accidents? First of all, they are out of school, which means more time and opportunity to be on the road. They are also less experienced drivers and highly susceptible to distractions from passengers in their cars to cell phones and other electronic devices.

Educating teens on the responsibilities and dangers of being on the road is key, and many towns and schools have programs designed specifically for this purpose. Teens are often asked to sign a pledge committing to not engaging in risky driving behaviors such as not wearing a seatbelt, using their cell phones, and drinking alcohol.

Defensive Driving

How can you protect yourself and your family during this hazardous season on the road? A few suggestions:

  • Build extra time into your summer travel schedule
  • Drop your speed to allow extra reaction time for unexpected situations
  • Be extra vigilant of what’s going on around you

In Case of an Accident

Know what to do if a motor vehicle accident occurs. Always call 911 to get help on the way, and don’t leave the scene until it arrives, even if you think the accident is minor. If possible, take photos and collect contact information. Call an experienced attorney to help you sort out your rights and options.

We wish everyone a safe and happy summer!

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!

Maye Ly Testimonial

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.
