Car Accidents in Colorado

Car crashes in the state of Colorado claim the lives of nearly 600 victims each year. Tens of thousands of other people are left with injuries that negatively impact their lives. Although many injuries are minor, there are a significant number of people harmed in crashes who require emergency surgery and hospitalization for their accident-related injuries. Some of the most devastating injuries sustained by accident victims include:

  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Neck and soft tissue injuries

When people sustain these and other injuries in crashes, they often require immediate care and long-term treatment. In some cases, those harmed have to go through months of treatment following their accidents. The unfortunate truth is that no amount of treatment comes with the promise of a full recovery.

For this reason, we see countless people left permanently disabled and forced out of work indefinitely due to their injuries. In some cases, victims can recover compensation from at-fault parties following their accidents.
