Colorado man dies in pedestrian accident in intersection

An 86-year-old Colorado Springs man died almost a week after he was knocked down in an intersection. Reportedly, the pedestrian accident occurred when the man was crossing an intersection but chose to walk behind a vehicle. The driver backed up at the moment when the pedestrian was behind his car.

According to an accident report, the driver of the car stopped at the intersection, but the front half of his vehicle was blocking cross-traffic. He backed up his car but failed to see the man crossing behind. The pedestrian was rushed to a medical facility nearby. However, he succumbed to his injuries six days later.

According to traffic authorities, there have now been 12 fatalities in road accidents in Colorado Springs since the beginning of this year, of which five were pedestrians -- including this latest death. Authorities say nine traffic-related deaths were reported for the same period last year. Reportedly, the investigation into this accident is ongoing. The surviving family members of the victim will be entitled to pursue claims for financial relief through the Colorado judicial system.

A wrongful death lawsuit is based claims of on negligence by another party, and that is never easy to prove. However, an experienced personal injury attorney can help navigate through the civil justice system. A Colorado lawyer can launch an independent investigation to gather the evidence necessary to establish negligence in court. A successfully presented lawsuit can result in a monetary award to cover end-of-life expenses and emotional damages brought about by a tragic pedestrian accident.
