Hit-and-run accidents: Firefighter dies on his way to work

In a recent tragedy in Colorado, a Greeley firefighter who survived the hazards of his occupation and saved the lives of others for 21 years lost his life in a traffic accident. His death was one of many that result from hit-and-run accidents each year. The fatal crash happened while the veteran firefighter was riding his motorcycle to work.

According to the police department, an emergency call came in shortly after 6:30 a.m. on a recent Thursday. First responders rushed to the scene to find a critically injured motorcyclist lying in the street. The vehicle that struck the biker was not at the crash scene. Although paramedics performed CPR on the victim as he was transported to the hospital, he succumbed to his injuries and was dead upon arrival at the hospital.

A crash report indicates that the hit-and-run driver was located and arrested soon after the accident. It is alleged that he drove an SUV and crossed over the center line, directly into the path of the motorcyclist. A head-on collision resulted that caused the death of the firefighter. The SUV driver was taken into custody.

Colorado families who lost loved ones in hit-and-run accidents are typically entitled to pursue financial relief, and although no amount of money can make of for such a loss, it could ease the financial burden. Dealing with the legal proceedings of a wrongful death lawsuit is a complicated process, but help is available. An experienced personal injury attorney can provide valuable assistance throughout the ensuing legal proceedings, which might result in a monetary award to cover financial and emotional damages.
