Accidents Due To An Elderly Driver’s Mistakes
Many elderly drivers do not have the reaction time they used to. Their skills on the road are diminishing, and they may have poor eyesight or hearing. These changes can lead to serious car accidents with other drivers on the road.
If you were injured in an accident with an elderly driver, the attorneys at The Law Offices of Bailey & Burke can help you investigate whether the negligent driver’s age or physical condition played a role in your car crash.

Investigating The Cause Of The Accident
With every motor vehicle accident, it is important to thoroughly investigate the cause of the accident. In cases involving elderly drivers, an accident may be caused by:
- Hitting the gas instead of the brakes or vice versa
- Failing to see another vehicle
- Failing to yield
- Sudden lane changes
- Slow reaction time
Our personal injury lawyers work with accident reconstruction experts and medical professionals to build our clients’ cases and demonstrate the long-term costs of your injuries after an accident. A serious back or brain injury can have long-term costs. We will work to secure full and fair compensation for your injuries, which reflects the past and future costs of your recovery.
At our firm, we represent clients who have lost a close family member, such as a spouse or parent, in a fatal accident. While we understand that no amount of compensation can make up for your loss, we can help you hold the negligent, elderly driver accountable for your loss through a wrongful death action.
