Driver goes through red light causing fatal crash

When people are on the road in Denver and across Colorado, there is an expectation that everyone will adhere to basic rules, like stopping at red lights, yielding to pedestrians and sticking to all other requirements that are designed to enhance safety. When that does not happen, it is possible that there will be a collision with injuries and death. Going through a red light is one of the riskiest behaviors for drivers and can place anyone in that vehicle's path in jeopardy. For those who have been injured or lost a loved one because of a reckless driver, having legal assistance is a must.

Positive and negative trends in Colorado workplace accident stats

Regardless of the type of work they do, Colorado workers can suffer injuries and fatalities in a workplace accident. For those who are confronted with this unfortunate turn of events, workers' compensation benefits are a necessity and a right. Workers' comp can provide compensation for medical coverage and lost wages. Many might not realize that families who have lost a loved one in a workplace accident can get workers' compensation death benefits. With the recent information regarding Colorado worker deaths, this is key.

Does workers' comp cover PTSD?

When you suffer an injury on the job, workers' compensation laws govern how much of that injury your employer is responsible for covering. Along with the physical injuries, you may also have psychological issues cropping up.

What if I want to reopen my workers' compensation case?

Coloradans who are injured on the job have the right to seek workers' compensation benefits. If their claim is approved, the worker will get the benefits they need, which can include the wages that were lost while they were unable to work and compensation for medical care. It is important to remember that not all cases are the same. In some cases, the claim might have been closed, but the person finds that medical care and disability benefits are still needed.

Fatal head-on DWI accident results in arrest

In Denver and throughout Colorado, drivers still choose to get behind the wheel after drinking or using drugs. This happens despite the known dangers and legal ramifications for doing so. Since drivers under the influence do not have the reaction time nor the judgment that people who are sober do, there can be accidents. Many of these accidents result in serious injuries and fatalities. People who have been injured or lost a loved one in a DWI crash should know how to pursue compensation in a legal filing.

Police officer injured on the job in crash with drunk driver

In Colorado, any employment can be dangerous and result in a worker being injured on the job. While those in sedentary and so-called "safe" jobs can be hurt in incidents and accidents, there are certain occupations that are riskier than others. Law enforcement is one. When an officer is out on patrol, investigating various incidents and serving the public, accidents and injuries can occur. While an officer is generally tasked with investigating drivers who are under the influence, they can also be injured in a crash with a drunk driver just as anyone else can. Even if the injuries are initially believed to be minor, that does not mean problems will not arise and lead to the officer needing treatment and being unable to perform the necessary duties. This is when it is wise to think about workers' compensation benefits.

Beware: A car crash can paralyze you

No one need tell you that winter driving in Colorado can be a bear at best. Snow-packed streets and roads and icy curves and intersections make driving hazardous, and unfortunately, the number of traffic accidents rises precipitously. The grievous injuries you could suffer should you become the victim of one include paralysis of part or virtually all of your body.
