The last thing any parent wants is for their child to be injured. As parents ourselves, we understand the desire to keep your children safe, which is why we have written and collected these materials. You’ll find tips to keep kids safe in and out of the car, and comprehensive information on what to do to protect your child after an auto accident. Injuries to children can be even more complicated and unpredictable than those suffered by adults, as their bodies are still in development and the effects of an injury can be long-reaching.
In addition, you can learn more about our non-profit Teens Against Distracted Driving. Started by Premier Law Group attorney Jason Epstein, TADD aims to teach high school students about the dangers of texting and driving and create lifelong safe drivers. We hope you will encourage the young people in your life to pledge to never text and drive (and of course, follow that advice yourself!)
