Fatal Auto Accidents in Golden, Colorado

Nearly 600 people lose their lives in auto accidents across the state of Colorado each year. Although most drivers are careful and considerate while traveling throughout the state, we see a significant number of people hurt in crashes due to the negligent and reckless actions of other motorists. 

When victims suffer fatal injuries in accidents, they often leave families behind to deal with overwhelming mental and emotional consequences.
