April 2019 Archives

Steep grade may have contributed to catastrophic crash

At the end of April, a semitruck hauling lumber plowed into stopped traffic on I-70 in Jefferson County. Anyone who has driven into or out of Colorado's Rocky Mountains has likely seen the signs warning truck drivers about steep grades. While the accident investigation is not yet complete, there is a good chance that the decline from Floyd Hill to Golden contributed to the catastrophic accident

The relationship between workplace injuries and opioid addiction

It is no secret that the U.S. is going through an opioid epidemic. According to the CDC, the number of overdose deaths from opioids increased six-fold in 2017 in contrast to 1999. Out of all drug overdose fatalities, 68% were from prescription and illegal opioids.

Pedestrian killed in hit-and-run auto accident

Colorado pedestrians must be fully aware of their surroundings and be cognizant of other drivers on the road. Because many drivers operate their vehicles under the influence, are distracted, or are simply driving too fast, auto accidents are common. An accident can be compounded by a driver fleeing the scene. Those who have been hurt or lost a loved one in such an accident should seek legal advice immediately.

PTSD for non-first-responders now part of workers' compensation

Colorado legislators, recognizing the need to include mental distress from on-the-job traumatic experiences for those other than first responders, extended a new law to include these workers. First response employees, such as police, firefighters, paramedics, EMTs and other emergency personnel regularly see horrific incidents at work. Even though emergency professionals receive training for their high-stress occupations, they must still deal with their own emotions elicited by the suffering of others. Peripheral workers who witness desperate situations are likewise affected.

43 crashes a day caused by distracted drivers in Colorado

There are seemingly endless stories and statistics about the number of accidents caused by distracted drivers. Coloradans are not immune to this trend and a new report says that it is a significant problem in the state. Even with law enforcement and legislators trying to reduce its frequency, people continue to believe they can multitask in this way. After a crash caused by a distracted driver, having legal advice is a key factor to secure compensation for all that was lost.
