Reports from the South Metro Fire Rescue show that a collision between vehicles blocked the eastbound side of Interstate 470 near the southbound ramp to Interstate 25. The incident prompted crews to close off the roadway as they worked to clear the area. At least one person was transported to a local hospital for the treatment of injuries. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

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

Car Accidents in Colorado

Being involved in a motor vehicle accident can be devastating. Although we want to believe that everyone is able to recover from injuries, this is not always the case. Yes, it is true that the majority of collisions end with minor injuries and only disruptions to the days of those involved. However, we continue to see thousands of victims hurt in crashes and left with injuries that require emergency medical care.

Victims who suffered broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and internal organ damage are often rushed to area hospitals where they have to undergo emergency surgery. Following surgery, many victims have to remain hospitalized for several days or even weeks. After being released from hospitals a lot of victims require long-term care, like rehabilitation and therapy. The unfortunate truth is that these treatments come at a significant cost and with no promise of a full recovery.

When victims are harmed in crashes caused by negligent drivers, it is crucial that they act quickly to protect their legal rights. Working with a knowledgeable car accident attorney in Colorado can provide you with the best chances of recovering. When victims are harmed due to the actions of others, they are able to recover compensation for medical costs, lost wages, and a variety of other damages they face moving forward from their accidents. Waiting to protect your legal rights can greatly impact your ability to recover.
