Driving is a rite of passage that many teenagers greatly anticipate. However, statistics show that teenagers are some of the most accident-prone drivers. Because of inexperience or negligent driving, they cause a significant amount of property damage and physical injuries on Wisconsin and northern Illinois roadways.
At Domnitz & Skemp , our lawyers understand what kind of damage teen drivers can cause. If you were injured in an accident caused by a teenager, we can help you recover the financial compensation through parent liability. Contact us for a free consultation.
Wisconsin's Sponsorship Law
In the state of Wisconsin, law dictates that teen drivers must have a parent, stepparent or other adult sponsor sign the driver's license application. By doing so, that adult assumes responsibility to carry insurance for any damage the teen driver may cause to other vehicles, property or persons until the teenager becomes 18 years old. Enacted because teen drivers rarely have the personal resources to cover the damage they cause while driving, this statute allows victims to pursue from parents' insurers, compensation for auto accidents.
As experienced attorneys , our purpose is to recover the financial resources our clients have lost during the healing and rehabilitation process. For decades, we have successfully won significant verdicts and settlements for our clients who suffered personal injury or lost a loved one to wrongful death. We are ready to work for you.
