CAR ACCIDENTS CAUSED BY ELDERLY DRIVERS

CAR ACCIDENTS CAUSED BY ELDERLY DRIVERS

Elderly drivers are common throughout Florida, which is home to more drivers over the age of 65 than any other state. It is a popular destination for retirees and others looking to enjoy all the Sunshine State has to offer. This means there is an increased chance of those drivers causing an accident.

For example, recently an elderly woman backed her van up and got it wedged between an incoming car and a gas pump at a gas station in the Tampa Bay area. Fortunately, no one was hurt. The woman claimed that her foot got stuck between the gas and brake pedals. While everyone was able to walk away safely from that accident, an Orlando car accident lawyer is very often needed to help sort out the injuries and damages resulting from similar accidents involving elderly drivers.

Driving in Orlando

With a population of nearly 240,000 in the city of Orlando, over 2 million residents in the metropolitan area, and an estimated 51 million tourists annually, it is no wonder that the roads in and around Orlando can get a bit congested. The fact that a significant number of the drivers on those roads are elderly means, unfortunately, that car accidents like the one described above happen on a regular basis, with hundreds occurring throughout the area each year.

Statistically, when comparing the number of accidents caused per million miles driven, elderly drivers are considered just as much of a potential hazard as teenage drivers. Attorney Todd Miner has been representing people injured in car accidents due to the fault of another party or parties for 20 years.
