Elderly Oklahoma Driver Accidents

By Car Accident Help on October 12, 2015

Late last month in Oklahoma City, an elderly driver lost control of their vehicle and hit a building. According to KOCO.com, the driver veered off the road and ran into the wall of a retirement home.

No injuries were reported in the accident, but the wall was damaged. Authorities are still investigating, and are trying to determine if weather was a factor in the auto accident.

Facts About Elderly Drivers

In the year 2012, there were almost 36 million drivers aged 65 or older on the road in America. Elderly people will make up  25 percent of the nation’s licensed drivers by 2025 (compared to 15 percent in 2001). Drivers over 65 are 16 percent more likely to cause accidents than drivers aged 25 to 64. Elderly drivers also tend to suffer worse injuries in an accident than younger drivers because of their age.

If you’ve been injured in an motor vehicle accident with an elderly person, or if an elderly member of your family has been injured in an accident, you need to contact a competent personal injury lawyer.

Oklahoma City Attorney Ray Maples has represented thousands of injured clients and won large settlements. He will take a personal interest in your case and work with you through every phase of your claim.
