Colorado Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers

Driving is something most people do every day, from quick in-town trips to long distance drives, both personally and commercially. We rely on our vehicles to get to work, school, to see family and friends, and to go shopping to continue our everyday lives. We also rely on other drivers to follow the rules of the road; unfortunately, in today’s hyper-connected world (aka smartphones), it is safer to assume that no one is paying attention, nor following the rules of the road appropriately. When other people drive carelessly, accidents happen – all it takes is a matter of a few seconds for an accident to occur. Say a parent is driving their children to the grocery store for dinner supplies and the kids begin bickering in the back seat. The parent turns around to scold them for just a second too long, passes through a stop sign, and finds themselves in a T-bone car crash. Smartphones may distract drivers incessantly as they check texts or social media accounts, but the old ways of distraction still work just as well.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, car accidents are a leading cause of death for all age groups. No matter how safely you drive, someone else’s reckless behavior can leave you with serious injuries. Carelessness is not a generational affliction, nor is the age-old wrong place, wrong time adage. Car manufacturers are constantly researching and developing improved safety measures for cars to alert drivers of other vehicles, motorcyclists, obstructions and obstacles, and pedestrians, but we are all a long time off from total safety. Until that time, the best thing you can do is remain hyper vigilant of everything around you when you drive, no matter how short the distance, or quick the trip. Sadly, this is not enough and accidents will continue to occur.

Motor vehicle accidents also involve more than just cars. At the Klibaner Law Firm, we help victims whose injuries stem from motorcycle collisions, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian-related claims. Since they are less protected and have far fewer safety features, motorcyclists and pedestrians suffer far worse injuries when involved in car accidents. Drivers who take their eyes off the road for too long risk causing a crash with a motorcycle; however, the cause of a collision can often be far simpler: the driver didn’t see the rider. Not checking blind spots and performing over-the-shoulder checks is one of the easiest ways to bump into a motorcycle. When there are limited sidewalks, or none at all, pedestrians are in greater danger as cars can clip them at high speeds causing fractions, concussions, or worse.

We also represent individuals who have been hurt by distracted motorists and drunk drivers. Even with the advent of ride-sharing and decades of government warnings and crackdowns, drivers still overestimate their capability to drive after a few drinks; worse yet, some drivers who have already been charged with a DUI will go on to get a second. By drinking and driving, not only are people putting their own lives in danger, they are risking taking the life of an innocent civilian.
