Senior Drivers' Eyesight - Watch Out!

Jeffrey S. Witten, B.A., LL.B.
Personal Injury Lawyer at McComb Witten Marcoux

Let me ask you this. How old was the driver of the vehicle that struck you during your pedestrian collision?

It’s an important question, one that cuts right to the heart of the question of blame, particularly when it comes to accidents that occur at night. The scientific community has proven that our vision deteriorates with age and it’s up to the driver to ensure that their eyesight is up to scratch if they are going to safely operate a vehicle.

As a result, if you’re a pedestrian that’s been involved in a collision with a vehicle that’s being operated by an older driver asking questions like “When was the driver’s last eye test?” can help to bring clarity to your ICBC claim. To find out why, or for more information on your accident check out our video or get in touch with us here in the office.
