Bicycle accidents on the rise nationwide

Many people today are recognizing the need to make lifestyle changes that not only improve their health, but also help the environment. More and more commuters are opting to use their bicycle to get from place to place rather than their car. 

Workers' compensation for carpal tunnel syndrome

Officer workers may not be facing the same high-risk situations on the job each day as those who are employed at factories or construction sites. But that doesn't mean they are not at risk of developing severe injuries and conditions that can prevent them from fulfilling their responsibilities at work.

Legalized marijuana linked to more accidents

The state of Colorado paved the way when it comes to legalizing the recreational use of marijuana a few years ago. Since then, seven other states along with the District of Columbia have followed suit. However, just as with drinking alcohol, this does not mean that drivers should feel free to smoke or consume any form of pot and then get behind the wheel of a vehicle. However, it may well be that some drivers are doing precisely that.

Where do you turn when injured in a parking lot or ramp?

The parking lot may seem like a gray area when it comes to liability for personal injury and eligibility for workers' compensation, but there's actually a set of standards to help individuals determine if they have a legal case against the property owner or employer. Parking lots are high-traffic areas with the potential for a variety of types of accidents and injuries, and it's critical that drivers, employees, property owners and employers understand the legalities surrounding these semi-public spaces.

Governor signs new distracted driving bill

For most people in Colorado, a cellphone has become something that is rarely out of an arm's reach or an eye's glance. The integration of these tools into daily life cannot be disputed and there can be benefits associated with that at times in terms of convenience if nothing else. However, there is also a very serious danger associated with the heavy reliance on smartphones in some situations, namely when a person is driving a vehicle.

Do contract delivery drivers qualify for workers’ compensation?

Recently, the Colorado Supreme Court ruled on whether or not delivery drivers could receive workers' compensation while being injured on the job. In the case, Western Logistics Inc., Diligent Deliver Systems v. Industrial Claims Appeal Office of the State of Colorado, sought to clarify the employment status of the delivery drivers who were performing services for the organization in order to determine whether they were qualified to receive worker's compensation in the state.

Child safety in car accidents

Nobody likes to hear about injuries to children and reading about the death of a child can be an emotional experience. As a society, we hold our children dear and do everything we can to protect them through our laws. But when it comes to our behavior behind the wheel, too many people drive as if safety is of no consideration when their children are in the back seat. 

I-25 Through Denver Shut Down Due To Tanker Truck Crash

The tanker truck accident that shut down I-25 near Orchard Road on Wednesday afternnoon should serve as a good reminder of why large 18-wheeler semi-trucks are so heavily regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The tanker was carrying oil and other hazardous liquids, which erupted into a large fire that was intense enough to melt some areas of RTD light rail tracks near the scene.
