When Young Drivers Are Involved In Car Accidents

Colorado drivers know when they take to the roads that they may encounter all types of dangers ranging from challenging road conditions to the recklessness of others. Some of the most statistically significant risks involve the mistakes and behaviors of inexperienced drivers — most commonly teens who may take more chances and overestimate their own reflexes and driving abilities. While there certainly are no laws against inexperienced driving itself, demonstrating that specific traffic violations or driving mistakes factored into your accident can be very important for your financial recovery.

More than 30 years of personal injury case experience informs James L. Finegan’s insight and tenacity when the cause of your crash requires investigation. The firm represents injured clients in metro Denver and throughout Jefferson County from its office in Lakewood.
