Car Accidents in Colorado
Every year, people are hurt in car crashes across the state of Colorado due to the negligence of other motorists. Although we can take proactive measures to protect others, there is no true way to prevent other people from engaging in reckless and negligent acts while operating their vehicles. Drivers routinely speed, pass red lights and stop signs, disregard traffic control devices, driving while impaired, driving while distracted, and engage in various other reckless actions that cause harm to others.
When victims are harmed in accidents caused by the actions of others, it is crucial that they reach out to a Colorado personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Victims may be entitled to compensation that can help to alleviate the costs they face moving forward.
In order to recover, victims must be able to prove that negligence existed at the time of the accident. This includes proving various factors including:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care
- The defendant breached the duty of care
- The breach of the duty of care caused the accident
- You suffered damages due to the accident caused by the breach
