Older Occupants' Recovery From Crash Injuries

The goal of this study was to provide better understanding of the consequences of older adults’ crash injuries on their health and functional performance – their ability to carry out normal activities – by addressing these research questions: What are the differences in measures of self-reported health and performance between: (1) People 65 and older who were injured in crashes, and those of similar age who were in crashes but not injured? and (2) People 65 and older and people 40 to 55 who were injured in crashes? Researchers reviewed police crash reports from Connecticut and Indiana from 2009 to identify potential participants who fit into one of the groups of interest for this study.
