Car Accidents in Colorado
Motor vehicle crashes devastate victims and their families. Here in Colorado, over 50,000 collisions resulting in injuries take place annually. Although many accidents are avoidable, we continue to witness the aftermath. Every day, people are hospitalized with broken bones, spinal cord injuries, internal organ damage, and other severe injuries that require immediate medical attention.
In many instances victims have to go through surgery, spend days in area hospitals, and months in therapy. Regrettably, many injured parties are unable to return to work for several weeks or even months as they recover. The mental, physical, and financial consequences can be overbearing.
When people are harmed in crashes caused by negligent drivers, they may be entitled to compensation they can use for medical costs, alleviate the impacts of lost wages, and to cover various other financial burdens they face moving forward.
