Repeat offender admits guilt in DUI car accident

Fewer things are harder for a Colorado family to accept than the serious injury of a loved one due to drunk driving. While there are inherent risks associated with driving and road travel, drunk driving accidents are entirely preventable.

A serious car accident can forever change the lives of those involved, and leave them with significant emotional and financial harm.

When an individual makes the decision to drink and drive, they also take on full responsibility for the consequences of their actions. Unfortunately, it seems as though the people harmed by drunk driver negligence are rarely the ones who are driving under the influence. While still under investigation, a recent crash in Colorado appears to be the result of a driver who failed to act in a responsible manner. The crash left a young man seriously injured when he was hit by an elderly woman on her way to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting.

Driver jumps curb, strikes teens in fatal Colorado car accident

Any parent of a teenager knows the fears and worries that surround teen driving and the risk of auto accidents. Inexperience, lack of confidence, and immature decision-making skills all add to the risk that a teenage driver will be involved in a car accident. For the family of one Colorado teen, none of those factors contributed to the car accident that led to his death. It was someone else's negligence that caused the accident.

Guilty verdict in Denver wrong-way crash; car accident suit next?

A fatal DUI car accident results in tragic and permanent consequences for family members of innocent people whose lives are cut short by intoxicated drivers. A Colorado woman has been found guilty of DUI vehicular homicide for her role in the car accident death of a young mother in May 2011.

Colorado car accident: car struck by a pickup towing scrap metal

On the road, drivers encounter all sorts of vehicles, including cars, trucks, tractor-trailers, motorcycles and vehicles in tow. It is essential that drivers know how to accommodate other vehicles and the risks associated with driving near certain types of vehicles. When we take the road in Colorado, there is an inherent trust given that the other drivers on the road will be alert, cautious and responsible for the condition of their vehicles. That trust is often broken, however, when drivers fail to act responsibly and a car accident may be the result.

Driver fatigue: A plague on Denver roads

Fatigued drivers can be just as dangerous -- and occasionally deadly -- as drunk drivers. Studies show that driver fatigue is a leading cause of car accidents on Denver area roadways. All of us live in a world of 24/7 schedules, and the residents of urban areas such as Denver are no exception. This means that your late night drive home from the office might entail risks that you hadn't counted on. Indeed, you could encounter a driver that has imbibed a little too much; but the driver directly in front of him or her who had only four hours of sleep in the preceding 24-hour period may be just as hazardous to your commute.
