Auto-pedestrian accidents in Colorado school zones a big concern

Drivers speeding in school zones are a significant problem in Colorado. In fact, a nationwide survey gave the state a "D" rating for pedestrian safety in school zones. Data was collected from over 125,000 schools across the country, considering issues like hard braking, rapid acceleration, distracted driving and speeding that could lead to auto-pedestrian accidents.

Among the 291 schools rated in Colorado, two Denver schools, Thomas Jefferson High School and Stedman Elementary School were ranked as the most hazardous for students to cross the street. Authorities say schools take steps like signposting at the start and end of safety zones and using flashing lights. Some schools also provide crossing guards during drop-off and pickup times to help students to cross safely.

According to Denver police, traffic engineers assist in the task of making sure that the necessary warning signs are up to indicate the safety zones at each school. However, they remind drivers to take particular care when driving in school zones because of the unpredictability of children. They asked drivers to slow down to allow more reaction time when necessary.

Many children in Denver have been victims of auto-pedestrian accidents in school zones. Parents are typically entitled to pursue claims for monetary damages if their children suffered injuries as the result of the negligence of a driver. An experienced personal injury attorney can simplify the process of establishing negligence and presenting formal claims in court. A successfully navigated lawsuit typically results in a monetary judgment to cover documented claims for economic and noneconomic damages.
