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.

What types of damages are available in personal injury claims?

On this blog, we often discuss how a personal injury claim can compensate an injured person for their damages. In this post, we will dive into a little more detail about what "damages" means in this context, and how Colorado law differentiates between types of damages.

Can I sue if I was partly at fault in my accident?

Most personal injury cases are based on the legal concept of negligence, and under Colorado law, negligence in car accident cases is relatively straightforward. A driver acts negligently when he or she fails to exercise reasonable care to avoid the risk of injury to others on the road. If their negligence leads to an accident and someone else is injured as a result, the negligent driver can he held liable for the injured person's damages, including medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.

Distracted driving probably causes more accidents than we think

How can we keep track of statistics about dangerous conduct on the roadways in America, such as instances of distracted driving? After all, at any given time there are millions of vehicles on the roads of Colorado and other states throughout the country. Nevertheless, it is important to keep track of what people are doing in their vehicles as they are driving, oftentimes at high speeds, alongside other people on the roadways.
