Unfortunate Facts of the Road

According to the traffic safety data released by the U.S. Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in May 2016, there were nearly two and a half million people injured in motor vehicle crashes in the United States in 2014.

Approximately 33,000 were fatalities.  On average, 90 people died each day and a person was killed every 16 minutes.

On a more positive note, there has been a 25% decrease in the number of fatalities and a 13% decrease in the number of injured in the last decade.

Hopefully, the reductions continue with constant safety improvements in vehicles and additional education about the dangers of distracted driving.

Damages You Can Recover

Each case varies in the amount that a person can recover for their claim.

Keep in mind that Colorado law ONLY allows monetary compensation for personal injury claims.

There is no other way for an injured person to be fairly compensated under the law.  You cannot force the at-fault party to become a personal attendant to the injured person until recovery.

Under Colorado law, a person injured in a car accident is allowed to recover any of the following applicable damages:

  • past and future medical expenses
  • past and future wage loss
  • pain and suffering
  • mental stress
  • inconvenience
  • impairment to the quality of life
  • physical impairment
  • physical disfigurement

Each of these damages has to be given an appropriate monetary value of compensation to equal the harm caused.

Unfortunately, the only damages that can be easily calculated are the past and future medical expenses and wage loss because there is billing for each medical provider and a monetary amount for work time lost.

The other category of damages are harder to quantify but experienced litigation attorneys have helpful ways of presenting these injuries to a jury and guiding the jury to a reasonable amount for each harm.

The only way that justice can be served under Colorado law is for all of the harms caused to you to be equally balanced by a reasonable monetary amount of compensation.

Only then will the balance of justice will be fully restored.

Let Luke utilize his extensive experience as a car accident lawyer in settling and litigating car accident cases to help you recover the appropriate amount for you for all of your harms.

Distracted Driving

Whether it is texting, talking on the phone, playing with the radio, applying makeup, or eating, distracted driving is just as dangerous as other impaired driving, such as drunk driving.

  • If you take your eyes off of the road for only five seconds, that translates to driving across a full football field at 55 m.p.h. blindfolded.
  • A study showed that sending or receiving a text takes the driver’s eyes off of the road for an average of 4.6 seconds.
  • That is a lot of distance to be covered while being completely oblivious to what is ahead.
  • A text will never be as important as your life and the lives of others.

Help us end distracted driving now by resisting the urge to take your eyes off of the road.

Don’t let the insurance companies take advantage of you during your most vulnerable time. Contact Luke for immediate and dependable help.
