Norfolk, VA Personal Injury Attorney Reports: Elderly Drivers May Be at Risk for Increased Car Accidents and Injury
Taking away the keys to the car from a parent can be an experience riddled with guilt. However, the alternative of allowing a parent who is no longer capable of driving safely on the road would be negligent and could possibly lead to serious injury.
As a Virginia car accident attorney, I know that one of the most common mistakes elderly drivers make is driving on the wong side of a road. In a recent Hickory, North Carolina (NC), accident an elderly couple crashed head-on into another driver while driving the wrong way down a highway. That North Carolina car wreck showed the damage that can occur when an elderly can no longer drive safely.
