Accidents Involving Seniors
As mentioned in a report done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in 2017, 18% of all traffic fatalities in 2016 were people 65 years of age and older. A 2019 report from AAA (The Automobile Association of America) reported that per mile traveled, fatal crash rates escalate starting at age 75 and rise dramatically after age 80. And while they determined that this is largely due to an heightened risk of personal injury and medical problems, not an increased risk of crashes, if they are behind the wheel of the other car you may be at a increased risk.

Ye, APLC for a free assessment and to look at your potential solutions.It is widely recognized that as we get 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 inability - or slowed ability - to respond to a threat or dangerous situation can be the difference between avoiding an accident entirely or becoming part of the accident statistics. With the advancement of superior medical technologies and the proper nutrition, people are living a lot longer and have more active life styles. Subsequently, there are more elderly motorists on the road, and as a result there are more accidents involving senior drivers. According to Consumer Reports, in 2017 over 3.5 million Americans 85 and older held a driver's license. If you or a family member in the San Juan Capistrano, 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.

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.Cyclists encounter quite a few of the exact same concerns as motorcyclists, but at lower rates of speed. Bicycles may not be as apparent as passenger cars and/or trucks, they aren't as stable on two tires as a car or truck is on four wheels, and a crash including a bicycle has a extremely high percentage probability of contributing to bodily trauma. 81% of pedestrian deaths in 2018 took place in metropolitan areas, and 40% of pedestrian deaths involving individuals 70 and older in 2018 took place at intersections, compared to 22% for those younger than 70.

Teenage and Inexperienced Driver Accidents
As you can probably imagine, the more practice anyone receives when driving, the more self assured they grow to be and the more efficient driver they develop into. Regrettably, teenage and brand new drivers are required to "practice" on the roads with the remainder of us, and they frequently have a lot to learn. A 2019 Texas A&M Transportation Institute study determined that Teens are more likely to speed and tailgate than more mature drivers. That same report found 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 percentage in speed-related fatal accidents (32% and 22%) when compared to any other age group in 2016, and that speeding was a factor in 31% of Teen driver deaths. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found that per mile driven, teen drivers ages 16 to 19 are almost 3 times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than drivers aged 20+, and that motor vehicle crashes are the primary cause of death for US teenagers.Granted, no one starts as an excellent driver; the majority of us needed practice, and some of us are still learning! But Teens who don't have practical experience are definitely more susceptible to getting into car accidents. Despite all of the data demonstrating that Teen drivers can make some bad judgments, the hard truth is that they are driving on the road with us, and their performance affects you and your loved ones.If you or someone you know has been involved with a car accident connected with a teenage or new/unskilled driver, you need to connect with Law Offices of John C.

Commercial Vehicle Accidents
There are also other cars and trucks that respond to the scene of accidents; tow trucks for instance. While you may think of tow trucks as the men and women who make an appearance to help to clear away the aftermath of a crash or assist an incapacitated car or truck, accidents involving tow trucks occur more often than you would envision, and can cause significant damage to vehicles, in addition to severe injury to individuals. Like large over-the-road vehicles (semi-trucks, 18 wheelers, etc.) tow trucks are big, bulky, heavy and not very maneuverable. Their size and decrease in mobility contribute to the damage they can do, and when you insert a towed-vehicle into the mix you increase the danger of accidents even further.Department of Transportation cars and trucks and other support vehicles (tow trucks, electric power company trucks, highway routine maintenance trucks, etc.) are all around you, and yet we usually 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 roadways.You should call Law Offices of John C.
