Teen dies after multivehicle pedestrian accident

The winter solstice recently passed and now Denver residents should notice a lengthening of daylight as the year comes to an end. However, evening still comes very early, and in the darkness of the afternoon and night, it can be difficult for drivers to see obstacles in front of them. This can include debris dropped from other vehicles as well as other automobiles and pedestrians in the roads.

Denver drivers, pedestrians both have a duty of care

We noted last week, in the case of a van that struck a group of pedestrians in downtown Denver, that pedestrian accident injuries can be both serious and, unfortunately, challenging when it comes to seeking compensation. Let's take a closer look at the responsibilities of both drivers and pedestrians, and consider how a court will go about determining negligence in an auto-pedestrian accident.

Auto accident in downtown Denver injures pedestrians

Walking around downtown Denver is something many residents would consider a relatively peaceful, safe activity. Especially when enjoying time out with friends in broad daylight, few would expect to suddenly find themselves the victims of an auto accident.

The holiday season can bring dangers to the roadways

Now that the holiday season is upon us, residents in Colorado and other states are likely in a festive mood. Colanders are likely being filled up with family gatherings, holiday parties and events. While this is an exciting time to plan and shop for, it is also a time where there is an increase in dangers on the roadways. Unfortunately, while much joy is brought with the holiday season, it can also bring devastation and grief as distracted driving and drunk driving is at an increase.

Vehicle accidents can cause catastrophic injuries

A vehicle accident can affect a Denver driver in any number of ways. It may be a simple "fender bender" that causes the victim to lose some time and expend some energy in order to repair their vehicle and deal with their insurance claims. It may be a more serious collision that leaves the victim feeling sore and requires a visit to the doctor and a treatment plan in order to recuperate. However, as many of our readers know, some accidents are significantly worse and can cause victims to suffer serious injuries that can threaten their mobility, their ability to communicate and, in some cases, their very lives.

Two die in wrong-way accident on Colorado highway

When driving down a Colorado highway or interstate, a driver may see a variety of different signs. There are signs that mark exits off of the roadways, and there are speed limit signs that tell drivers just how fast they may go according to the applicable laws. They may pass signs that tell them how far they must travel in order to reach cities and towns along the way, and they could see signs for restaurants, gas stations and other points of interest.

What are examples of distracted driving?

It is not uncommon for Colorado residents to find themselves distracted multiple times per day. They may find themselves pulled off of a work task to complete another responsibility, or they may lose their train of thought when an unexpected encounter takes their minds on a different path. Distractions are often harmless and only lead to lost time and attention. However, when they occur to a person who is driving a car the results can be deadly.
