A recent study by researchers at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health established a link between adults with ADHD and car crashes. The study concluded that older adults with ADHD were 74% more likely to be in a collision and 102% more likely to get traffic tickets than non-neurodivergent drivers of the same age (65 to 79).
More research is needed to uncover the link between medical conditions such as ADHD and the risk of car accident. The more research is available, the more we can support drivers in staying safe and support injured plaintiffs in getting the financial recovery they need. The team at Flaxman Law Group has put together this guide to help you understand the latest research.
