Car Accidents in Colorado

It is nearly impossible to prepare for the aftermath of a motor vehicle crash. No matter how much we think we are ready to deal with the consequences, there is no way to truly predict the consequences of a crash. Tens of thousands of victims are left with severe injuries each year in the state of Colorado due to vehicle crashes. Over 80% of these accidents take place due to the negligence of drivers. Some of the leading causes of collisions include:

  • Drivers who are speeding
  • Drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Drivers who are engaging in negligent driving behaviors
  • Drivers who fail to yield the right of way
  • Drivers who disregard traffic control devices
  • Drivers who are texting, talking on their phones, or otherwise distracted

These and other factors contribute to crashes that cause injuries for countless victims across our state each year.
