Wrongful death claim possible in Colorado accident

An 18-year-old driver is facing serious charges following a car accident that claimed the life of another teen, according to local sources. The Colorado State Patrol said the driver suffered only minor injuries in the car crash that killed a 16-year-old boy. He faces charges of drunk driving, as well as vehicular homicide, and state law allows the family of the deceased teen to file a wrongful death lawsuit as well. 

Driver could face wrongful death lawsuit for trooper's death

Police officers have one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. As they begin their shift each day they risk being shot by a suspect, targeted for their role as a law enforcer or involved in a high-speed chase gone wrong. Around every corner is another opportunity to be hurt or worse. This was unfortunately the truth for a Colorado State Patrol trooper who was recently accidentally killed while performing his duties. It is now possible that the person responsible for the accident may face a wrongful death lawsuit for their actions.

Doctor may face wrongful death claim for mother and toddler

Doctors are often thought of as intelligent, level-headed, responsible members of society. They are expected to demonstrate care and consideration both in and out of the office. Sometimes, however, they make mistakes and act recklessly or even as though they are above the law. One Colorado doctor's seemingly poor judgment in his personal life cost the lives of a mother and her toddler. Now he faces criminal charges and also possibly a wrongful death civil claim for his deadly decisions on a Colorado roadway.

Wrongful death claim possible in DUI crash that killed 3

Losing a family member in an accident is a heartbreaking experience. Losing two family members at the same time is understandably even more devastating. A Colorado family experienced just that type of tragedy resulting from an accident during which an elderly husband and wife were both killed by a drunk driver. The driver in that accident has been sentenced to prison, and the victims' family clearly has grounds to pursue a wrongful death claim against the man.

Wrongful death of elderly woman in senior center explosion

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.

Colorado street racers could face wrongful death lawsuit

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.

Wrongful death claim possible re pedestrian accident

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.

Wrongful death suit likely for repeat DUI offender

Many people have DUIs on their record. Often, someone makes a bad judgement, has too much to drink before driving, gets arrested and learns from his or her mistake. Most offenders only make this mistake once. A Colorado man with a staggering six DUI convictions apparently didn't learn from his mistakes, and now he faces a huge number of charges, including murder and, most likely, wrongful death.

Colorado murder victim's family can still file for wrongful death

There are times when the family of a murder victim feel they have no control over the fate of the murderer. That is the case for the family of an Edwards, Colorado, woman. The woman's murderer has accepted a plea deal for second-degree murder and burglary, which would make it possible for him to be paroled after serving 51 years of his 68 year sentence. Her family feels this punishment is completely inadequate and fought to have the deal declined by prosecutors; however, they lost their argument, and the plea deal was accepted. Although the victim's family was not able to see man go through a criminal murder trial, they can still file a wrongful death suit and have him stand trial in civil court.

2 dead, wrongful death lawsuit possible

One man is dead and another is seriously injured following a serious car accident on Colorado 66 near Lyons. The Colorado State Patrol has confirmed that one person died at the scene, and that alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. So far, they have not filed charges, but their investigation is still ongoing as of this report. Even if no criminal charges are filed, a wrongful death suit might still be possible.
