Vicarious liability claims may help support auto accident victims

Most Coloradans who have been injured in an auto accident feel like they have been cheated. In the blink of an eye, they have to find a way to cope with an enormous amount of pain and suffering, while at the same time, securing the funds needed to pay for medical care and rehabilitation. This can be enormously difficult when an individual is unable to work in the weeks, months or years following their auto accident, which can lead to a whole new level of stress.

Untreated sleep apnea can lead to serious auto accidents

Even the safest Colorado drivers are at risk of being seriously injured or killed in a car accident caused by the negligence of another. This negligence can come about in a number of ways, too. Distracted driving, primarily driven by texting and driving, continues to increase, while drunk driving and high driving seem to be becoming more common. Even driver fatigue can play a tragic role in a serious auto accident. For victims who are seeking to recover compensation for their damages suffered in one of these accidents, it is crucial to prove negligence. However, it is not always easy to determine the cause of a car accident.

What is comparative fault in Colorado?

When a person is injured in an accident, the common reaction is to ask, "Who was at fault?" Determining fault requires a jury to decide whether either party violated their duty to use reasonable care. That inquiry seems rather straightforward, but what happens when both parties violated the applicable standard of care?

Auto accidents linked to marijuana use rising

Colorado set the trend for marijuana legalization. Amid all the viable reasons for doing so, there was an overwhelming concern that the decision would lead to drivers operating their vehicles under the influence of marijuana. Since the drug can have side effects that make it dangerous to be behind the wheel, a rise in auto accidents was a major worry. DUI accidents can cause serious injuries and fatalities and it is important for those who have been involved in a crash to understand what steps to take if marijuana was a factor.
