What are the most important things to do after a car accident?

If you become involved in a vehicle crash this winter on a snowy or icy Colorado road, you should do – and not do – certain things immediately afterward. Per FindLaw, the most important thing you should do, even if it is a relatively minor accident, is to stay there until law enforcement officials arrive. If you fail to stay, you could face charges of hit-and-run and/or leaving the scene of an accident.

Colorado traffic fatalities rise again in 2017

Colorado’s motorists have good reason to exercise caution when traveling the state’s roadways, as traffic fatalities continued to rise in 2017. While most the state’s traffic deaths occurred in the Front Range, with many happening in and around cities including Denver and Boulder, more rural areas and counties, too, saw an uptick.

What are ‘Dram Shop” laws?

Despite the fact that people are well aware of the risks and consequences of driving while under the influence of alcohol, far too many still choose to operate their vehicles after having one too many libations. The number of car accidents that occur as a result of drinking and driving continues to climb year after year, putting innocent people on the roads at risk of suffering a severe injury or worse, a fatality.

When a pedestrian causes a car accident

During the winter season, when snow makes driving conditions difficult and the holidays bring out the revelers in full force, there are many more car accidents in Denver involving pedestrians. Legally, pedestrians have a lot of protection. This is due to the fact that pedestrians who are hit by a motor vehicle are far more likely to suffer from an injury or a fatality than the driver or passengers within the vehicle. There are many circumstances in which pedestrians have the right of way, such as crossing the street at an identified cross walk. However, there are also situations in which a pedestrian may be considered at-fault in an accident. 

Distracted driving highlighted in study

Rear-facing car seats: Why they are important

Parents today are inundated with information about the safety of car seats and how to safely travel with your child in a vehicle.

How do I file an insurance claim after an accident?

Any stressful event can leave you feeling confused and overwhelmed for days or weeks after the event. This is particularly true when it comes to the aftermath of a car crash, especially if you or someone you love was injured. It can help you and other Colorado residents to know in advance how to handle your accident claim.

2016 a deadly year in Colorado

Like many people in Colorado, you may once in a while wonder if all of the improvements in automobile safety technology along with stronger laws are actually able to help reduce the number of accidents or, even better, save lives. Certainly both of those things are goals of the efforts made by vehicle manufacturers, law enforcement entities, municipalities and state and federal lawmakers. However, even the most well-intended efforts appear to be ineffective some of the time.

Drunk driver kills one, injures another

Colorado residents have been provided with a wide array of data and education informing them just how dangerous it is to drive after drinking for many decades now. Yet, too many people continue to ignore these warnings and facts and grab their keys after downing one or multiple beers or other beverages. The result of this decision has not changed and another accident that happened recently just keeps supporting the need for people to change their ways.

When children are injured on a school bus

Parents place an inherent trust in the school systems in which they send their children. They rely upon teachers to gently guide their children through their days, encouraging them to love to learn. They rely upon the principals and administrators to enforce the rules and to create a safe yet fun environment for all children who go there. They also rely upon the bus drivers to transport their children to and from school safely each day.
