The death of a 15-year-old girl last month reminds Georgia residents that car surfing can be extremely dangerous and should never be attempted. According to the story on My Fox Atlanta, last month a teenage girl was compelled to stand on her friend’s car roof while it sped down the road. The goal of car-surfing is to refrain from falling off the car while it is moving at a high speed down a road. It is extremely dangerous, and many teens are injured or killed doing this sport every single year.
Normally, a teenager who chooses to car-surf will be held accountable for his or her own actions. Yet if the teenager only got on the car because of intense peer pressure or if other factors attributed to the teen’s death, then he or she may have the right to seek compensation from another party-at-fault.
With the right attorney on your side, you may be able to prove that you could have been spared from injuries if another person had not been so negligent. You can also seek compensation in a wrongful death case if your loved one was killed. Parents are encouraged to teach their teens the dangers of car-surfing and encourage them not to give into peer pressure when they are asked to do dangerous activities like this one.
