On September 27th, a car struck a 78-year-old man riding his bicycle in Lakeview, Illinois. He was hit by a 90-year-old man operating a Mazda sedan traveling in the same direction of the bicycle around 7:30 p.m. The driver was cited for failure to reduce speed and the victim was transported to a local hospital for multiple injuries. Unfortunately, on November 6th, the man could not overcome his injuries and lost his life.
There has been focus on accidents involving the youngest age group of drivers. While this age group has been proven to be at-fault for a high percentage of accidents, there is little focus on the age group of drivers over the age of 60. Lawmakers are constantly trying to alter the laws to make them stricter for young drivers, but perhaps laws should be changing for older drivers as well. Regardless of the age of the responsible driver, being injured or killed in an accident is tragic. Contacting an injury attorney to assist with your claim should be a step in recovering from such an event.
