How Prescription Medications Could Affect Your Driving

Did you know that eight out of every ten drivers who are over the age of 65 take medications on a regular basis? Despite the fact that most senior drivers take over-the-counter medications, only about half of them have actually talked to their doctor about how these drugs could affect their driving abilities. This means that a significant number of senior drivers could be putting themselves at risk every time they get behind the wheel-not to mention, everyone else on the road. This is why AAA has developed a resource called Roadwise Rx that adults can use to explore how certain medications could affect their safety.

Can I File a Car Accident Claim If I Was a Passenger?

When two drivers are involved in a car accident and no one is seriously injured, the following procedures are relatively simple: they exchange contact and insurance information and proceed to file a claim. What happens, however, when you suffer an injury as the passenger? Do you file a claim with your own insurance company or that of one of the drivers, or possibly even both? In this situation, it may be in your best interest to discuss your options with a Connecticut car accident lawyer. Filing an insurance claim as a passenger can be tricky-especially if it is unclear who was actually at fault-so it is important to ensure that your rights are protected. Fortunately, the legal team at McCoy & McCoy has the experience and knowledge to help you through this process.
