Did you know…
Many insurance companies consider senior citizens to be high-risk drivers. While that may be the case on occasion, our experience has taught us that seniors are actually more careful drivers. According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administrationand the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the safest drivers are in the age group between 64 and 69 years old.
Seniors are more likely to be seriously injured in an accident than someone younger, simply because of the nature of getting older. Insurance companies attempt to dismiss their injuries and chalk it up to old age. However, a car wreck can cause an old injury to reappear or a small pain to become a big one.
These are special cases and a senior needs to have an attorney that understands the nuances of insurance companies and who knows how to utilize the positives of a person’s age to benefit the case. If you are a senior citizen and have been in a wreck, I urge you to have an attorney look at your case. Give NWA Car Accident Attorneys a call!
