Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/05/2014 -- Rand Spear, the Accident Attorney of Philadelphia, represents victims of all ages when it comes to motor vehicle accidents. He, along with many other Americans, are aware of the growing concern of car accidents among older drivers, which are expected to reach new heights in the upcoming years due to baby boomers facing retirement.
Recent studies show that the risk of an auto accident increases steadily after individuals reach the age of 75. Because drivers over 75 have a greater risk than teenagers, they are considered by many to be the most dangerous drivers on the road.
As an auto accident attorney who has handled the most complex cases, Rand Spear, the Accident Attorney, understands issues surrounding serious & fatal accidents that involve the elderly. Drivers over the age of 65 account for approximately 1 in 6 fatal accidents throughout the nation. The number of older drivers has also increased by 20% in the last decade.
Many auto accident cases in Philadelphia have proven that the older driver was not at fault. However, when an older driver is proven to be at fault, a thorough investigation can reveal the reason for driver impairment including slow reflexes, vision, hearing and decline in cognitive ability. Family members are encouraged to begin conversations with elderly family members about hanging up the keys, to keep them free from harm. Freedom and independence is important for the elderly, however safety should also play a part.
Family members dealing with a Philadelphia auto accident involving an older spouse or loved one can contact Rand Spear, the Accident Attorney for an initial consultation. All personal rights and freedom will be discussed during the initial consultation.
