Fatalities in motorcycle accidents may prompt lawsuits

The rules of the road apply to everyone on the road, no matter the age and no matter the manner of transportation. Those who choose to violate those rules may cause serious damage in the form of car or motorcycle accidents. Victims who have been injured in car or motorcycle accidents often decide to file a personal injury lawsuit, while surviving families of deceased victims may opt to pursue a wrongful death claim. A 46-year-old Colorado man died recently in a crash attributed to the negligence of another person.

Lawsuits likely to be filed after car accidents

Advertisements warning the public not to drink and drive have been around for several decades. Nevertheless, there are those who ignore the advice and get on the road after having consumed enough alcohol to impair their reaction times, increasing the chances for causing serious car accidents. Not one, but two Colorado drivers are facing charges after allegedly driving under the influence.

Many car accidents can be attributed to drug or alcohol use

Although many car accidents in Colorado are caused by the weather, the number caused solely by human error is also quite high. Cell phones, finding a decent radio station or even children are distractions that can cause people to have car accidents that cause tremendous damage. Add impairment because of drug or alcohol use, and the chances of having an accident skyrocket.

Serious car accidents often leads to Colorado lawsuits

It is not uncommon for lawsuits to be filed after people are injured in car accidents. Usually, however, the plaintiffs and the defendants involved in the car accidents are not well acquainted. One Colorado woman may choose to file a suit against her friend, however, after the friend apparently crashed the car in which she was a passenger.
