Fatal crash results in death of Colorado man

Traffic signs and signals are often put in places to help traffic move more smoothly. They can also help make troublesome areas, like intersections, safer for motorists to get through. However, if a driver does not adhere to these signs and signals, a fatal crash could easily take place.

It was recently reported that this type of accident occurred in Colorado. The incident involved an SUV and a pickup truck. The teenager driving the SUV reportedly failed to stop at a flashing red light, which resulted in his vehicle colliding with the pickup truck. The incident caused the truck driver to be partially thrown from the vehicle. The drivers were apparently the only occupants of either vehicle, and their ages were given as 18 and 49 years old.

Colorado woman killed in fatal car accident

The death of a loved one can be the starting point of many struggles in the lives of surviving family. Emotional turmoil can begin instantly, and financial difficulties may also arise due to funeral expenses, loss of income and other related issues. Dealing with these problems can seem overwhelming, and in order to address the results of a fatal car accident, surviving families may file wrongful death claims.

One family in Colorado may consider this legal option after a recent crash. Reports stated that the incident involved two vehicles and occurred around 8:45 a.m. on a recent Wednesday. Apparently, a 19-year-old woman was driving a vehicle south when she failed to stop at a stop sign. As a result, her vehicle traveled into the intersection and collided with another vehicle that was making a left turn.

Nursing home abuse should never be overlooked

Recently in a suburban Midwestern city, a resident of an assisted living center had been dead for two days before she was found. No staff member had performed the required daily room checks. Three years ago, a nursing home assistant in Colorado was sentenced to prison for sexually assaulting two women under his care. And throughout the country, hundreds of incidents of theft from nursing home patients' rooms have led to the advent of "granny cams" - hidden cameras installed in rooms to catch thieves red-handed.

Elder abuse - including physical beatings and psychological taunting - happens in nursing homes. There's no doubt about that. Last year, a government audit disclosed that 25 percent of possible sexual and physical abuse against nursing home patients went unreported to authorities. Roughly 80 percent of the unreported incidents involved suspected sexual abuse.

Crash involving semi may lead to Colorado wrongful death claim

When a fatal accident takes place, it may not be immediately clear to authorities who may be at fault for the incident. For this reason, evidence is collected, and investigations are carried out in order to obtain as much information as possible about the event. The information pertaining to who is considered responsible for a fatal accident can play a substantial role in any resulting wrongful death claims.

It was recently reported that a deadly crash took place in Colorado. The incident occurred at an intersection and involved a semitrailer and a passenger vehicle. Report stated that the driver of the truck was attempting to make a left turn when it collided with the sedan, which was presumably traveling straight at the intersection as it appears in photos that the truck hit the driver's side of the car.

Unsecured transport items cause serious injuries and fatalities

Have you ever driven on the freeway behind a vehicle carrying a heavy load of items? It could be a long ladder that doesn't appear securely tied up. Perhaps it is a long bed truck carrying many large steel pipes. Do you ever fear such items will get loose and hurl towards your windshield? It is a scary thought, especially since roadway debris is the reason many crashes occur. In fact, according to a study done by AAA Foundation, over 200,000 traffic accidents stem from unsecured transport loads.

As a driver, you may only have a split second to make a pivotal decision. Accidents of this nature may cause a sharp swerve or a screeching halt of the brakes. Attempting to avoid the impact of falling debris may also result in a multi-car highway accident.

Family may consider wrongful death claim after Colorado crash

Making the decision to take legal action after a fatal car accident can be difficult for surviving family members. They certainly know that seeking compensation cannot bring their loved one back, but they may gain some semblance of closure and justice if they choose to file a wrongful death claim. Though this type of action can be complicated, it may prove beneficial.

This type of civil claim could potentially result from a recent accident that took place in Colorado. Reports stated that a head-on collision occurred, but additional information on how the accident took place was not available in the report. It was mentioned that both vehicles caught fire. The two drivers were the only parties involved in the incident.

Fatal crash may lead to wrongful death claims in Colorado

Sudden deaths can affect everyone differently. Unfortunately, most deaths do occur under unexpected circumstances, and car accidents account for a considerable number of those fatalities. When an accident does result in one or multiple deaths, the surviving family members of the victims may have reason to seek compensation from the driver considered at fault through wrongful death claims.

Such claims may be filed in Colorado after a recent accident led to the deaths of two people. Reports stated that the incident involved two vehicles and took place on Interstate 70. Apparently, a silver car failed to remain in the correct lane and hit a darker colored vehicle that was in the center lane of the road. The collision caused both vehicles to overturn.

Spinal cord injuries from crashes result in serious disabilities

Most people understand that there is a level of risk involved in getting behind the wheel of a car or riding as a passenger. Sadly, people die and suffer serious injuries every day as the result of motor vehicle collisions. No matter how careful you are while driving, there's always the risk of someone else making a mistake that causes an accident.

When that happens, you and your family can end up paying the price. Serious injuries can result from crashes caused by distracted, drunk or negligent drivers. Sometimes people hits their heads and suffer traumatic brain injuries. Spinal cord injuries can result from the force of an impact, penetrating injuries, rolling vehicles or being ejected from a car or truck. These injuries often result in permanent disabilities.

Family may consider wrongful death claim after train hits SUV

No parent wants to think about the idea of losing a child. Sadly, this type of tragedy does occur, and many families are left to contend with the grief and other hardships such an event can bring. When other parties may be liable for the incident that led to the death, the family of the victim may have reason to file a wrongful death claim.

One family in Colorado may wish to seek more information on this legal option after a recent accident. Reports stated that the incident involved an SUV driven by an 18-year-old high school student and a train. Details on how the incident occurred where not given other than to state that the collision took place around 6 p.m.

Wrongful death claims may stem from Colorado wrong-way crash

Fatalities, serious injuries, property damage and other outcomes are common from serious crashes. Unfortunately, car accidents have a tendency to occur often and can affect many people in a single collision. Surviving family members of individuals killed in crashes often have many hardships to face, and due to these struggles, they may have cause to file wrongful death claims.

Such claims could potentially stem from a recent accident that occurred in Colorado. Reports stated that an SUV was traveling southbound into northbound traffic when the crash took place. The SUV struck two other vehicles, and a total of six individuals were involved in the incident. The driver of the SUV was reported as being a 24-year-old woman. Police noted that alcohol was likely a factor in the accident.
