What Age Demographic is Responsible for the Most Car Accidents?

Unfortunately, car accidents happen in New York City every single day. Despite the fact that anyone can get into an auto accident, the truth is, certain age demographics make up the majority of auto accidents. Please continue reading and reach out to a seasoned Manhattan car accident lawyer from the Law Office of Richard M. Kenny to learn more about what age demographic causes the most car accidents and how our legal team can help if you’ve been wrongfully injured. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What age demographic is responsible for the majority of car accidents?

In general, young drivers, particularly those under the age of 25, are responsible for the majority of all motor vehicle collisions here in the United States (according to CDC data). That said, drivers who are over the age of 70 are responsible for a significant portion of auto accidents as well. Unfortunately, in any case, if you’re injured in an auto accident, it doesn’t really matter who was behind the wheel; all that matters is that you get the financial resources you need to recover from your injuries.

How do I know if I am entitled to compensation after being injured in a car accident?

To recover financial compensation for an auto accident injury, you will need to gather and present sufficient evidence to satisfy the burden of proof. In simple terms, you’ll have to prove that you are not responsible for your accident, and that your accident was instead caused by the careless actions of another driver. This isn’t always easy to do, so it is paramount that you retain the services of a dedicated attorney who has years of experience representing accident victims like you.

To prove your personal injury claim, we will have to gather and present a wide range of evidence, including:

  • Pictures of the accident or of any vehicles/property damaged in the accident
  • Footage of the accident as it happened
  • Witness testimony
  • Medical documents

Don’t wait to file your claim–the statute of limitations for most personal injury claims in New York is three years. Waiting longer than this will likely revoke your right to sue. Contact us today so we can start fighting for you.
