Lakewood, CO – Injuries Reported in Collision on W Duquesne Dr

Lakewood, CO (August 2, 2021) – Authorities were requested at the scene of a traffic-related incident in the Lakewood area that ended in injuries. At around 12:29 a.m., on August 2, the Lakewood police, West Metro Fire Rescue, and EMS units were called to the site of a crash on West Duquesne Drive.

Reports from local authorities indicate that a collision blocked the 8470 block of Duquesne Drive during the early morning hours. The incident prompted emergency crews to remain on-site for over 50-minutes as they worked to clear the roadway and restore the flow of traffic. EMS tended to injured victims on-site before transporting those in need of further care to nearby hospitals. At this time, the cause of the crash remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with the victims injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

Car Accidents in Colorado

Auto wrecks in the state of Colorado continue to impact the lives of countless victims every day. In many instances, people involved in collisions are left with painful injuries that impact their ability to perform various tasks. Many injured parties are forced out of work for several weeks as they recover. However, thousands of victims are left permanently disabled following crashes each year.

When victims are hurt in crashes, they often face towering financial burdens moving forward. In some cases, injured parties are able to file legal claims against at-fault parties to recover compensation to help alleviate some of the costs they endure on their road to recovery. A trusted legal team can help you maximize your recoveries for:

  • Long-term care costs for nursing homes, rehabilitation, and therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Mental anguish
  • Medical costs for doctors, surgery, and hospitalization
  • The loss of consortium
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost earnings and benefits
  • Property repairs and replacement fees
