Car Accidents in Colorado

Motor vehicle accidents can have a life-changing impact on victims, especially when they are left with painful injuries. We see thousands of people hospitalized each year with broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries from crashes in our state. In many instances, these victims remain hospitalized for several days and have to go through weeks of therapy and rehabilitation. Regardless of how much treatment a victim goes through, there is never a promise of a full recovery. We see many people who are left permanently disabled following collisions across our state every year.
