Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Colorado
Each year, hundreds of people lose their lives in auto accidents across the state of Colorado. In some cases, victims are not traveling inside vehicles at all. Instead, they are walking along busy roadways toward their destinations. Over the past decade, we have seen a dramatic increase in the amount of pedestrian traffic in some of the larger cities across our state. Regrettably, we have also seen a drastic and unpleasant increase in the number of pedestrian fatalities.
Pedestrians are often victimized by reckless and negligent drivers who fail to adhere to traffic laws across our state. When drivers text while operating their vehicles, drive impaired, or engage in other negligent behavior, it can lead to life-changing crashes.
