Car Accidents in Colorado
Each year, more than one million people are hurt in car accidents across the United States. A significant number of these victims require hospitalization for their injuries. Here in Colorado, we see thousands of people treated for severe injuries that negatively impact their health and wellbeing. Injuries like spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and internal organ damage all require immediate care and have long-term consequences for victims. Although most people are careful while out driving, we continue to see a lot of accidents take place due to the negligence of others.
Over 80% of collisions in the state of Colorado are caused by drivers who engage in negligent actions while operating their vehicles. Drivers routinely speed, pass red lights and stop signs, disregard traffic control devices, drive while distracted, drive while impaired, and engage in various other reckless actions that cause harm to others.
