Car Accidents in Colorado
Thousands of people are injured in car accidents throughout Colorado State each year. Accidents at intersections are commonly caused by drivers who are engaging in other activities while behind the wheel. When drivers are eating, talking on their phones, texting, or changing the radio, they take their attention off the road ahead. Taking your eyes off the road for a few seconds can result in a life-altering collision. In addition to distractions, speeding, and intoxication, disobeying traffic control devices are among other leading causes of collisions throughout our state. Not only do accidents completely disrupt the lives of those involved instantly, but many victims are left with debilitating injuries which will affect them for months or years to come.
Many victims harmed in collisions are left with extraordinary costs related to medical treatment and vehicle repairs.
