Car Accidents in Colorado

The state of Colorado currently holds the rank of 31st in the nation for having the deadliest roadways. Every month, thousands of victims are hospitalized with injuries after being injured in collisions involving cars, trucks, and SUVs across our state. Victims who are harmed in crashes are often left in unbearable pain and have to suffer throughout their recoveries. Those who sustain spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and even traumatic brain injuries often require both immediate and extensive medical care. These and other serious injuries can negatively impact the health and well-being of victims. In some cases, injured parties are left permanently disabled and unable to work and enjoy activities with their friends and loved ones.
