The holidays are a time of happiness, family, celebration and excitement. One family from another state will never think of Thanksgiving the same way again. Their memories will forever be tainted by the tragedy that occurred this Thanksgiving in a Denver crosswalk. On that fateful night, three members of their family were struck by a vehicle in a hit-and-run car accident. One of the family members will never get to have another Thanksgiving, and the others are left to relive the disaster each year.
When an elderly person moves into a senior living facility, safety is usually one of the primary reasons. The facility may provide health care, assistance with basic daily tasks or even just companionship so the elderly person isn't alone. Of all of the tragedies that can occur at a senior community, an explosion is not one of the normal possibilities, but unfortunately one happened recently in a Denver community. Now it is possible a construction company may face a wrongful death lawsuit due to its role in the tragedy.
Street racing is dangerous. Instead of being discouraged the way texting while driving and driving under the influence are, street racing has actually become promoted by popular television shows. Some programs present it in a fun, careless light without serious consequences or dangers. But it is dangerous -- not only for the racers, but also for others who share the roads. Two street racers in Colorado face criminal charges and also possibly a wrongful death lawsuit for the death of a man killed in an accident they caused recently.
Accidents involving pedestrians are common in Colorado. Sometimes the fault is on the pedestrian, and sometimes it is on the driver. There are times when pedestrians don't wait for the crosswalk signal before crossing the street -- especially if there is a large group crossing, and other times the driver either doesn't see the pedestrian or runs a red light. An accident earlier this week seems to be due to yet another reason. A driver may face a wrongful death lawsuit regarding a pedestrian accident involving driving under the influence.
