Summer time is just around the corner for our teenage sons and/or daughters.  According to the NHTSA’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), the most deadliest months for teens between the ages of 15 and 19 are the summer months of May through August.  Although not old enough to drink alcohol, many teens nonetheless will pick up that bottle of beer or take a drink from the keg and when alcohol is mixed with a teenager driving an automobile, the risk of an auto accident causing personal injury to themselves or to others or, even worse, death, increases dramatically.  So, take the time before the school year ends and stress the dangers an automobile accident causing serious injuries can result when drinking and driving are mixed.  If you or a family member are seriously injured as a result of an auto accident, call Attorney, Wendy Schiller-Nichols, for a free consult.
