Colorado Automobile Accidents

The Car Accident Attorneys of the Injury and Recovery Law Center

Auto accidents can happen at any time, and can involve anyone, anywhere. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were over 10 million vehicular accidents in 2008 alone. Unfortunately, many good drivers suffer property losses or injuries because of the poor judgment or even criminal actions of other drivers.


When you or a family member has been involved in an auto accident in Colorado, it is best to be proactive and contact your Colorado personal injury attorney immediately. At the same time, your attorney can act to reduce your own liability for damages or injuries to others, should a court later decide that you bear some responsibility as well. In such cases, it is critically important to be represented by expert legal counsel as soon as possible. The precious moments after a Colorado automobile accident may present the last opportunity to gather the contact information for witnesses, or to note important details regarding the facts of the collision.

Some drivers are more likely to be involved in a Colorado auto accident because of their age or physical condition, or their use of alcohol, medications, or other substances. Such drivers are less likely to be properly insured, and are unfortunately, more likely to cause accidents involving serious injuries. Although law enforcement authorities and courts in Colorado have made efforts toward identifying and reducing the dangers posed by such drivers, they still remain a hazard on Colorado roadways today.


Most Colorado automobile accidents occur within a twenty-five-mile radius of one’s home. This is logical because it represents the area in which most traveling is done, and it also represents a “comfort zone” in which a driver is likely to be more relaxed and less alert. Colorado auto accidents tend to occur when least expected and least convenient. Often, accidents occur during times of stress or fatigue, or when repressed anger becomes “road rage.”


A driver who stays alert and drives defensively is much more likely to avoid a Colorado auto accident. Still, in the event that you or a family member are involved in a collision with another vehicle, especially a collision involving personal injuries, the best course of action is to immediately contact your Colorado personal injury attorney. An experienced and aggressive Colorado personal injury attorney can accurately assess the situation and give you expert advice to ensure that the other driver is held accountable for his or her actions.
