When multiple parties are at fault in an auto accident (Part 2)

Sometimes it's crystal clear which party is responsible for causing a car crash. Other times, it may be that multiple parties involved in an auto accident all bear some responsibility. How does a Colorado court decide how to award damages in such a situation?

Understanding sideswipe collisions

When one vehicle collides with the side of another car, the official report generally classifies it as a sideswipe collision. The public may not focus on these accidents as much as rear-end and head-on collisions, but they result in a significant number of total accidents each year.

For example, like a doctor can, an NP in Colorado may diagnose and treat patients and prescribe medication as long as the NP's initial supervisory period has been completed. Colorado also recognizes NPs as primary care providers. That said, workers' compensation is an issue that perhaps requires even more care and attention to detail because of the documentation involved. It is also important that correct diagnoses be made.
