Q: How Can Older Drivers Avoid Georgia Car Accidents?
A:Preventing Georgia car accident injuries should be a priority for all motorists, but particularly for older drivers for whom car crash injuries can be even more serious. As Atlanta car accident lawyers, we encourage older drivers to take the following steps to avoid car accidents. First, know your limitations. Do not drive if you are not feeling well. If you have trouble seeing at night, then limit your driving to daytime hours. Likewise, if you are not comfortable driving in inclement weather, then wait until the weather improves. Second, protect yourself from injury. Always wear your seat belt, even on short trips, and listen to concerned family members if they are encouraging you not to drive. Finally, take care of yourself. Get regular medical and vision exams. Talk to your medical providers about whether it is safe for you to continue driving and listen carefully to their advice.
If an accident was unavoidable and you have been hurt by an older driver, then you may be entitled to damages. Contact the Atlanta car crash attorneys of The Dover Law Firm at 770.518.1133 or via our online contact form for more information
