Fatal Car Accidents in Colorado

Nearly 600 people lose their lives in auto accidents across the state of Colorado each year. Although most drivers are careful and considerate while traveling throughout the state, we see a significant number of people hurt in crashes due to the negligent and reckless actions of other motorists. Some of the leading causes of crashes are:

  • Inclement weather
  • Being distracted while operating a vehicle
  • Drivers who fail to yield the right of way
  • Drivers who are impaired by drugs or alcohol
  • Malfunctioning parts and defective vehicles
  • Drivers who are reckless
  • Drivers who disregard traffic control devices
