Pedestrian Accidents in Colorado
There are countless laws enacted annually across the country to protect pedestrians. Although numerous measures are taken to protect those who choose to travel by foot, we continue to see these people harmed at an alarming rate. According to statistics, the number of fatal pedestrian accidents in Colorado is up 89%. In many cases, victims are left with serious and life-threatening injuries that force them out of work for several weeks at a time. Given the fact that pedestrians lack adequate protection during collisions means they are likely to suffer catastrophic injuries that require emergency medical assistance.
