No one is immune from getting into a car accident. A few months ago in Pomona, a police officer crashed into a civilian vehicle, resulting in minor injuries to the other driver.
As an aging American, you may begin to develop certain risk factors as you grow older that make you more likely to fall and suffer a serious injury as a result. Sometimes, home and property owners behave negligently and leave items cluttering aisles or blocking staircases, while in others, they may leave pools of water or other substances collecting on the floor. While such hazards may pose only a minor threat for younger people, who may be able to easily spot and avoid potential obstructions in their paths, older people sometimes struggle to do the same. Their falls can have gravely serious consequences.
