A pain and suffering car accident is, unfortunately, a part of life and very few of us have been able to drive free of problems on the road, whether being involved in a slight fender-bender or a major highway car accident, or even becoming a witness to the aftermath of a major car accident.

In short, teens are more likely than any other age group to be involved in a single car crash. They tweet, they text, they exhibit errors in judgment more frequently than any other demographic…
