Auto accidents and elderly drivers

Today, it seems more and more elderly drivers are on the road. Reports indicate that more and more elderly drivers are getting into accidents every day. Should elderly drivers be allowed to get behind the wheel? Should there be an age when they can no longer drive?

What happens when they are involved in a serious accident? In California, a driver who has turned 70 years old must go into a DMV office and take a written test plus an eye exam. If the individual shows any signs of diminished ability to drive, they may have to take a driving test. Are you aware that as of last year more than 70,000 people over the age of 90 still held a valid driver's license?

Just because a driver is 90 years old doesn't make them a danger on the roads. There are some older drivers that have a better driving record than someone half their age.

If you have been involved in an accident with an elderly driver and were injured, contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who will investigate your case to determine if you are entitled to compensation for your injuries and medical expenses.
