As a Seattle personal injury attorney and Washington car accident lawyer, I am always interested in safety trends on our roads and highways. With the baby boom generation beginning to reach the senior citizen age range, I did some research on how this growing population of older drivers will effect car crash cases. The statistics I came across were rather shocking. I found that despite a rapid increase of Americans entering into their 60’s, the rate of senior car accidents has actually gone down.
Total auto crashes for Americans 70 and older has decreased at an amazing rate – one that substantially beats the rate of middle-age drivers. While people are keeping their licenses longer and longer, the stereotype about senior citizen drivers is quickly becoming an antiquated notion. Check out my website at straighttalklaw.com, where you can find the article and read about this trend that has gone against all expert predictions from years past.
