Pedestrian Accidents in Colorado
Every year, lawmakers across the United States work aggressively to enact laws to protect pedestrians. Although endless measures are taken to safeguard those who choose to travel by foot, we continue to see these people harmed at an alarming rate. Our state continues to see an increasing problem surrounding pedestrians harmed in collisions. In fact, hundreds of pedestrians are injured by vehicles along Colorado roadways each year.
The fact that pedestrians are without protection during collisions means they are more likely to suffer serious and life-threatening injuries. Pedestrian accidents often leave victims with broken bones and other debilitating injuries that require extensive medical treatment. Many victims are left with life-altering injuries that never heal. Any victims are left to deal with permanent disabilities resulting from their accidents. When victims are injured in collisions as a result of another person’s negligence, it is crucial that they reach out to a pedestrian accident attorney in Colorado as soon as possible.
