Car Accidents in Colorado

Motor vehicle accidents can have a crushing impact on the lives of those involved. Although many traffic-related incidents resolve with only minor cuts and bruising, thousands of other victims are left with injuries that force them into area hospitals where they have to undergo extensive treatment. In many cases, victims are left with traumatic brain injuries, severe internal organ damages, burn injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and broken bones that have a crippling impact on their lives. In many cases, victims are hurt in crashes due to the actions of others. Some of the leading causes of crashes include:

  • Drivers who fail to yield the right of way
  • Drivers who disregard traffic control devices
  • Drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Drivers who are engaging in negligent driving behaviors
  • Drivers who are speeding
  • Drivers who are texting, talking on their phones, or distracted by other means
