Auto-pedestrian accidents: Bicyclists face similar risks

With warmer weather approaching, people in Denver and across Colorado will likely be keen to get out and enjoy the fresh air while running, hiking, biking and walking. However, with all these activities comes increased risks of auto-pedestrian accidents. Cyclists who share the roads with automobiles face the same elevated risks.

Concern exist over the number of fatal auto-pedestrian accidents

Based on a recent report by the Governors Highway Safety Association, highway safety officials nationwide, including Colorado, reported increased numbers of pedestrian deaths.

Auto-pedestrian accidents are preventable

Almost everyone in Colorado is a pedestrian at one point or another. The number of fatal auto-pedestrian accidents reach alarming levels every year, with statistics reporting a death occurred, on average, every 90 minutes in 2016. This underscores the importance of every adult taking the responsibility of maintaining safe practices whenever they are pedestrians, and establishing safe habits in children from an early age.

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.

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.

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.
