Auto-pedestrian accidents could have devastating consequences

Pedestrians in Colorado will always be vulnerable. Safety statistics indicate that auto-pedestrian accidents are common causes of injuries treated at ER facilities in Denver. Regardless of how careful a pedestrian is, he or she may fall victim to a negligent driver. Even if it never happens, it might be a good idea to know what to do in such circumstances.

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.

Auto-pedestrian accidents: Teen killed by suspected DUI driver

The police in Loveland, Colorado, say they are investigating the death of a local teenager who was struck by a truck. This was one of those auto-pedestrian accidents in which the vehicle driver is suspected of drunk driving. The Loveland Police Department Technical Crash Investigation Team is heading the investigation.

Auto-pedestrian accidents are not always pedestrian's fault

When pedestrians are struck by vehicles in Colorado, they are typically deemed the negligent parties even before investigations are complete. Although it is true that pedestrians are often at fault, vehicle operators might be partially to blame. Victims of auto\-pedestrian accidents are entitled to seek financial relief in the civil court, regardless of whether the drivers are criminally charged or convicted.

Auto-pedestrian accidents are too often blamed on the victims

Pedestrians and cyclists who are injured in road accidents are often made out to be the ones to blame for whatever happened. Colorado pedestrians must not feel intimidated by the way the media, and sometimes law enforcement, seems to use language that clears all vehicle operators and declares that no auto\-pedestrian accidents will happen if pedestrians follow the rules. Almost every report that involves a pedestrian or cyclist points out some level of contributory negligence by them.

Precautions can prevent auto-pedestrian accidents

Pedestrians in Denver or other Colorado cities will always be vulnerable to motor vehicle accidents. The risks of being involved in auto\-pedestrian accidents are significant, and with no protection, pedestrians often suffer catastrophic injuries. While they have no control over the actions of vehicle operators, pedestrians can take some precautions to limit potential injury risks.

Fatalities in Colorado auto-pedestrian accidents at record high

When commenting on the growing number of traffic fatalities in Colorado Springs, a police officer compared drivers to gamers. He noted that many drivers seem to have video game mentalities on the roadways. However, he observed that they often suffer real-life consequences, without the option to press the reset button. In 2017, there were a record number of fatalities involving pedestrians and cyclists. In auto\-pedestrian accidents, of course, the pedestrians typically have little chance of survival.

Auto-pedestrian accidents: Fatal crash kills pedestrian

Colorado Springs law enforcement says an investigation is underway after the death of a pedestrian.

Authorities say emergency workers responded to the reported scene at approximately 4 p.m. on a recent Thursday.

2 auto-pedestrian accidents in Colorado questioned

When Colorado residents lose loved ones in accidents that are caused by the negligence of other parties, they can pursue financial relief through the civil justice system regardless of whether the drivers are criminally charged or convicted. Two fatal auto\-pedestrian accidents in Colorado Springs occurred in March and May. The reason for the different legal outcomes is currently being questioned.

Auto-pedestrian accidents: Preschoolers at risk

With the new school year comes the dangers of car accidents involving Colorado children -- often with devastating consequences.
