    Your personal injury lawyer in Caernarfon and your claim against an elderly driver

    A certain proportion of the road traffic accidents in and around Caernarfon are inevitably caused by an elderly driver. Elderly drivers are, in many ways, safer drivers than younger drivers because they are highly experienced motorists who are very used to spotting road hazards and taking evasive action. However, there are a small number of elderly drivers who no longer have the necessary driving skills.

    Their reaction times may be slow and this can be caused by medical conditions or by medication. Illness and medication can also affect senses, alertness and eyesight. For this reason we should all read the label on medication carefully in case it affects our driving ability. This applies to prescribed and over the counter medication.

    Regular eyesight checks are also essential for all drivers, not just the elderly. If you have any concerns about your ability to drive you should discuss this with your family doctor.

    What can a personal injury lawyer in Caernarfon do for you after an accident caused by an elderly driver

    If you have been involved in an accident in Caernarfon that was caused by an elderly driver then you should firstly summon appropriate medical attention. Then you can make sure that you collect the contact details and registration number of the driver who caused the accident. Do this politely and calmly. Witness contact details are also very useful later on in your claim when your lawyer is setting out your case. Many people choose to take photographs at the scene using their mobile phones.
