Auto-pedestrian accidents often caused by distracted drivers

Colorado Springs police responded to an accident that caused injuries to three people. This incident was a perfect example of the hazards of mobile device distractions. Despite awareness campaigns and enforcement, distracted drivers continue to cause auto-pedestrian accidents and other collisions.

According to a preliminary crash report, this incident occurred on a recent Tuesday morning in the downtown Springs area. Police officers say a man in a pickup truck was traveling at a speed of at least 50 mph -- which is 15 mph over the posted speed limit. According to the driver, he was distracted when he checked the GPS on his mobile phone.

The driver further stated that, while he was busy with the phone, he mistakenly thought he saw a vehicle approaching from the left. When he swerved to the right to avoid this vehicle, he lost control of the pickup truck. He smashed into three pedestrians who were sitting on a bench waiting for a bus at a bus stop. The nature and severity of the injuries to the pedestrians were not reported.

Victims of auto-pedestrian accidents might be entitled to pursue financial relief through the Colorado civil justice system. If the driver who struck them was at fault, they could file personal injury lawsuits in a civil court. Proving negligence could be a challenging process, and most injured victims of accidents seek the support and guidance of an experienced personal injury attorney to advocate for them. The lawyer can assist in the pursuit of monetary judgments to cover medical expenses and other economic losses along with pain and suffering and other emotional damages.
