As indicated by a report done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in 2017, 18% of all traffic fatalities in 2016 were among people 65 years of age and older. A 2019 study from AAA (The Automobile Association of America) reported that per mile traveled, deadly crash rates rise starting out at age 75 and increase dramatically after age 80. And while they concluded that this is primarily due to an more significant risk of personal injury and medical complications, not an increased risk of crashes, if they are driving the other car you may be at a additional risk.

Ye, APLC for a free consultation and to look at your potential remedies.It is well-known that as we get older we begin to lose many of our skills. Our hearing can decrease, as can our visual acuity, energy level, cognitive ability, and reflexes. The failure - or slowed ability - to respond to a threat or dangerous scenario can be the difference between steering clear of an accident altogether or becoming part of the accident data. With the advent of enhanced medical innovation and the proper nutrition, people are living for a longer time and have more active daily routines. Subsequently, there are more senior motorists on the road, and thereby there are more accidents involving senior drivers. According to Consumer Reports, in 2017 over 3.5 million Americans age 85+ held a driver's license. If you or a family member in the San Bernardino, CA area have been in an accident involving a senior citizen, or if you are over 65 and have been in an accident, contact Law Offices of John C.

They typically are not as apparent as passenger cars and/or trucks, they aren't as steady on two wheels as a car or truck is on four wheels, and a crash involving a bicycle has a high percent probability of bringing about physical injury. 81% of pedestrian fatalities in 2018 happened in urban areas, and 40% of pedestrian fatalities involving someone 70 and older in 2018 occurred at intersections, in comparison to 22% for those younger than 70.

Teenage and Inexperienced Driver Accidents
As you can probably imagine, the more training an individual receives behind the wheel, the more confident they grow to be and the more effective driver they develop into. Unfortunately, Teen and new drivers must "practice" on the road with the rest of us, and they often have a lot to learn. A 2019 Texas A&M Transportation Institute study concluded that Teens are much more likely to violate the speed limit and follow at unsafe distances than seasoned drivers. That same report revealed that Teens normally do not consider driving at 5 to 10 mph above the speed limit to be dangerous.The NHTSA found that drivers ages 15-20 had the highest representation in speed-related fatalities (32% and 22%) in comparison to any other age group in 2016, and that speeding was a factor in 31% of Teen driver fatalities. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) discovered that per mile driven, teen drivers ages 16 to 19 are almost three times more likely to be involved in a fatal auto accident than drivers aged 20 and older, and that car accidents are the primary cause of death for US teens.Granted, no one begins as an excellent driver; the majority of us required practice, and many of us are continuing to learn! But Teens who do not have experience are obviously more susceptible to getting into car or truck accidents. Despite all of the statistics showing that teenage drivers can make a lot of bad judgments, the reality is that they are on the road with us, and their conduct affects you and your loved ones.If you or someone you know has been involved with a major accident which involves a teenage or new/novice driver, you need to call Law Offices of John C.

Commercial Vehicle Accidents
There are also other vehicles that respond to the location of car accidents; tow trucks for instance. While you might possibly think of tow trucks as the people who show up to assist clear away the consequences of an auto accident or assist an incapacitated vehicle, accidents involving tow trucks occur more often than you would anticipate, and can be the source of appreciable physical damage to vehicles, along with serious personal injury to individuals. Like large over-the-road trucks (semi-trucks, 18 wheelers, etc.) tow trucks are large, bulky, heavy and not very maneuverable. Their size and decrease in mobility contribute to the physical damage they can do, and when you add a towed-vehicle into the situation you elevate the chances of accidents even further.Department of Transportation vehicles and other service provider vehicles (tow trucks, power company vehicles, road repairs and maintenance trucks, etc.) are all around us, and yet we normally do not notice them as much because we are so comfortable with seeing them. The fact is, however, that they are heavy, on the move, and can present dangers on the roads.You should call Law Offices of John C.

Definitely. For that matter, you shouldn’t communicate with a claims adjuster until after you have spoken to an attorney at law. Claims adjusters are employed by the insurance underwriter, they don't represent you. It is their duty to preserve their company's cash, and they can’t accomplish that if they voluntarily offer you the greatest settlement, so they are going to offer you less. Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC will get you more.
They may be responsible for all, a portion, or none of your medical-related costs. Since California is a Comparative fault state, you are allowed to receive reasonable and customary healthcare costs, but you are only eligible for the proportion that is not your fault. So, if the accident is determined to be 100% the fault of a different person, you should recover one hundred percent of the damages. If, however, you are found to be to blame in any way, your settlement will be discounted by the corresponding percentage.For example, if you were struck by a car (they were at fault) but you were not wearing a seatbelt (as required under California Vehicle Code Section 27363), and injuries you received were 30% as a result of your seatbelt violation, your settlement may be reduced by 30%.
