Recently, attorney Brandon Hewitt spoke at Andover High School in Bloomfield Hills. Brandon was there to talk with the students about the dangers of distracted driving, to discuss Michigan’s texting law, and how unsafe it is for drivers to text and drive, and to drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Car accidents are one of the top killers of teenaged drivers in the U.S.: each year, more than 4,000 teen drivers lose their lives in car accidents caused mostly by distracted driving.
Our attorneys work with high schools and colleges throughout Michigan, donating dozens of hours to help spread awareness and prevent these tragedies. As attorneys representing the victims of these automobile accidents, we can talk to students about the real-life consequences of what these decisions mean for both the victims, and the drivers involved.
Here are a few photos of Brandon at Andover High School.
Soon, in honor of National Youth Traffic Safety Month, Brandon will be speaking to students at Hillsdale College in Hillsdale, Michigan.
