How to Share the Road with Truck Drivers…  

truck-driver-in-front-of-truckThe sheer size of commercial trucks makes them a special hazard on the roadways of America. Part of the issue lies with the drivers of the smaller vehicles who lack understanding of the particular nature of trucks. Sharing the road with large commercial trucks requires being aware of both the capabilities as well as the limitations of the larger vehicle. While you may consider commercial trucks to be huge, noisy and downright scary at times, the fact is that over 80 percent of our communities in the United States depend on truck drivers to deliver the goods we use every day. Commercial trucks really are the backbone of our transportation system, and they are here to stay.  (more…)

Injured in a Rental Car Accident? Now What?…  

Sad man having car trouble on the country road. With any car collision there is a certain protocol you must follow, however if you were driving a rental car at the time of the accident, you will likely have a few more steps to take care of. It can be very traumatic to be involved in an automobile accident when you are in an unfamiliar city, driving an unfamiliar car, and most likely on vacation. Following the accident, you must first see to any injuries which drivers or passengers sustained. If anyone needs to go to the hospital, make sure they receive appropriate medical treatment. Many times people don’t think they are hurt as badly as they really are, due to the adrenaline which floods their body at the time of the accident. This adrenaline can mask pain and other symptoms of injury, then later on the person realizes the full extent of their injuries. Many people are also hesitant to go to an unfamiliar hospital, so they tell themselves (and others) they are fine. (more…)

Do Serious Injuries Only Occur in High Speed Accid…  

Driver Suffering From Whiplash After Traffic Collision | Minor Impacts Can Lead to Major InjuriesAlthough it seems to be self-evident that greater injuries will occur when the speed and impact of a collision is greater, in truth this is not always the case. In many instances, even when the vehicle’s speed is relatively low and there is little to no damage to the vehicles, these minor impacts can lead to major injuries. In particular, neck injuries can occur during a minor bump-in, causing pain and problems for months or years to come. This phenomenon can be partially explained by the fact that in some vehicles the bumper to bumper chassis may have little to no crushing effect in a crash, yet the high G force could cause whiplash or other serious injuries to the driver and passengers. Unfortunately, the term “whiplash” has almost become synonymous with fraudulent, and this stigma can overshadow the very real consequences of whiplash injuries. (more…)

Are You the Victim of a Hit and Run Motorcycle Acc…  

black motorcycle on it's side in the road | Hit and Run Motorcycle Accident in Colorado At least seventy-five percent of all motorcycle accidents result from a collision with another vehicle, and in well over half of these accidents the driver of the motor vehicle was directly responsible of violating the motorcyclist’s right-of-way.

This miscalculation can lead to death or severe injury of the motorcyclist, whether it was caused from an inability to see the oncoming motorcycle rider or a belief on the driver’s part that he or she could be completely turned before the motorcyclist arrived at the intersection. If you're the victim of a hit and run motorcycle accident in Colorado, our experienced attorneys can help you seek fair compensation. (more…)
