Accidents Involving Seniors
As reported by research 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) determined that per mile traveled, deadly crash rates rise starting out at age 75 and rise dramatically after age 80. And while they determined that this is largely due to an heightened risk of injury and medical complications, not an increased risk of crashes, if they are driving the other car you may be at a greater risk. If you or a family member in the Maywood, 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. Ye, APLC for a free appointment and to talk about your potential remedies.It is widely known that as we grow older we begin to lose many of our abilities. Our hearing can decrease, as can our eyesight, energy level, cognitive ability, and response time. The failure - or delayed ability - to react to a hazardous or high risk circumstance can be the difference between steering clear of an accident altogether or becoming part of the accident statistics. With the advancement of improved medical technologies and nutrition, people are living for a longer time and have more active lifestyles. Subsequently, there are more senior drivers on the road, and as a result there are more accidents that involve older 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 Maywood, 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.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents
Accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists can be even more complicated than vehicle-to-vehicle accidents because the other party may or may not have insurance.Bicyclists endure quite a few of the exact same issues as motorcyclists, but at lower speeds. They are usually not as noticeable as passenger cars and/or trucks, they aren't as stable on only two wheels as a car or truck is on 4 tires, and a collision involving a bicycle has a high percentage likelihood of contributing to bodily personal injury. 81% of pedestrian fatalities in 2018 took place in urban areas, and 40% of pedestrian deaths among someone 70+ in 2018 occurred at intersections, as opposed to 22% for those younger than Age 70.

Teenage and Inexperienced Driver Accidents
As you can potentially imagine, the more training someone receives behind the wheel, the more secure they become and the more effective driver they grow to be. Unfortunately, Teen and brand new drivers have to "practice" on the roads with the rest of us, and they frequently have a lot to learn. A 2019 Texas A&M Transportation Institute study determined that Teens are much more likely to violate the speed limit and follow at closer distances than experienced drivers. That same report revealed that Teens 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 greatest representation in speed-related fatalities (32% and 22%) as opposed to any other age bracket in 2016, and that driving too fast was a component 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 crash than drivers aged 20 and older, and that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of loss of life for US teenagers.Granted, no one starts off as a really good driver; the majority of us needed practice, and several of us are continuing to learn! But Teens who lack practical experience are definitely more inclined to getting into car or truck accidents. Irrespective of all of the research indicating that teenage drivers can make some mediocre judgments, the reality is that they are driving on the road with us, and their behavior affects you and your loved ones.If you or someone you know has been involved in an accident which involves a teen or new/unskilled driver, you need to connect with 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 guys who make an appearance to assist clear away the consequences of a crash or assist an disabled car or truck, accidents involving tow trucks occur more frequently than you would imagine, and can cause significant damage to vehicles, in addition to serious injuries to people. Like large over-the-road commercial transport trucks (semi-trucks, 18 wheelers, etc.) tow trucks are large, bulky, heavy and not very maneuverable. Their size and diminished mobility contribute to the physical damage they can do, and when you add a towed-vehicle into the mix you elevate the possibility of accidents even further.Department of Transportation cars and trucks and other specialty vehicles (tow trucks, electric power company vehicles, road routine maintenance vehicles, etc.) are all around us, and yet we tend not to 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 represent hazards on the roadways.You should call Law Offices of John C.
