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.

A 27-year-old man was arrested after allegedly running a red light and crashing into another vehicle. The other driver died at the hospital following the collision. Law enforcement is attempting to ascertain whether the driver who ran the red light was under the influence. He has a record of traffic violations going back to 2007. He served time for DUI and assault for an incident in 2010.

People who are simply minding their own business and are hit by a driver who runs a red light or a stop sign can suddenly find themselves hospitalized with serious injuries that can hinder their lives for an extended period, if not forever. They can even lose their lives leaving their loved ones with the personal, financial and emotional aftermath of an unnecessary crash. Those who receive that unwanted call from law enforcement that a loved one died in a collision because of a negligent driver must remember their rights to seek compensation. A legal filing can cover lost companionship, lost wages, medical costs and more.

If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident with a drunk driver, you should consider your options. It might be a wise decision to contact an attorney who has experience in helping people who have been negatively impacted by an auto accident.
