Did you get into an accident from a driver using Snapchat?

Many young people are more likely to drive distracted. Sometimes this means driving with too many friends. For others, it means putting on makeup while driving. In far too many, it means using the phone.

Teenagers Especially at Risk

Phone usage behind the wheel is dangerous for everyone. But driving even is worse when you're using apps. One of the most popular apps is Snapchat, which may have caused a fatal crash last year.

Philly.com reported on the deadly crash. The fiery explosion took the lives of three young people. Any life lost due to such accidents is unacceptable. Additionally, such a risk is on our nation's roads every day.

What Do You Need to Do After a Crash Caused by Snapchat?

Families hurt by car crashes have several options. It is vital that the family does not settle with an insurance company first.
