Car accidents on Colorado roads are not rare. Sometimes weather can be a factor and other times, vehicle malfunction can be the cause of the trouble. However, most car accidents, it seems, are as a result of operator negligence and carelessness. A recent accident between two vehicles resulted in medical treatment for four people.
A woman was driving her sedan down the street when she hit an SUV that had been traveling in the opposite direction. The driver of the SUV was trying to make a left turn at the time of the collision and had two teenagers in the car with her. All three were taken to a local hospital after the crash but were released after treatment.
The woman in the sedan was trapped in her car and had to be cut out by rescue personnel. She was also taken to the hospital and was admitted for at least two days, according to a report. Her level of injury was not specified. Authorities do believe that drinking and speeding contributed to the wreck.
People are injured in car accidents similar to this one every day. Colorado residents who have suffered from injuries inflicted because of the negligence of another person may need guidance when exercising their rights to file a lawsuit for compensation. Compensation can cover medical expenses, lost wages, and pair and suffering. Finding someone with a comprehensive knowledge of personal injury law may mean the difference between a large financial settlement or no settlement at all.
