Automobile crashes can have a life-changing impact on victims. In many instances, injured parties have to go through extensive medical care and spend weeks in recovery. When victims sustain severe injuries in accidents, like traumatic brain injuries, loss of limbs, and spinal cord injuries, they are often forced to make major life changes moving forward. Some victims are never able to return to their jobs and many are left in pain and to suffer indefinitely. 

Over 80% of collisions in the state of Colorado are caused by drivers who engage in negligent actions while operating their vehicles.
