artistic rendering of what the Rocky Mountain Hyperloop could look likeImagine being rocketed through the Colorado countryside in a levitating pod at blistering speeds up to 700 mph.

Unfortunately, many injured accident victims are reluctant to hire an attorney because they’re afraid they can’t afford it. Luckily, this is far from the case. Understanding contingency fees is important if you're going to understand how attorney compensation works, and what it means to you. (more…)

The Dangers of Speeding Outlined in New Study…  

driver side view mirror of speeding car | the dangers of speedingAfter studying the dangers of speeding, the National Transportation Safety Board recently issued a report, meant to serve as a reminder to drivers, to slow down. According to the report, as much as a third of all traffic deaths over the past ten years involved drivers exceeding the speed limit either by driving faster than the posted limit or by driving faster than the weather or road conditions warranted. The biggest issue with speeding is that the time the driver has to react to a surprise lengthens the distance needed to stop, thereby increasing the chance of a collision. (more…)

In fact, according to the NY Daily News, lane departure warning systems have decreased accident rates by 11 percent or more, while blind spot monitoring has done even better, cutting accident rates by 14 percent. These numbers were gleaned from studies done by the IIHS, who sifted through law enforcement reports from 25 states to find accidents which occurred between 2009 and 2015, involving vehicles which came with this life saving auto safety technology.

classic motorcycle helmet on display in store | Guide to Motorcycle Safety in ColoradoMotorcyclists are at a particularly high risk of dying when they are involved in a traffic accident, due to the fact that a motorcycle affords practically no protection to the rider. Unlike passenger vehicles, which surround the driver and passengers in steel and glass, hold them in place with a seat belt, and, in most newer models even offer airbags, a motorcycle has none of these safety features. Motorcyclists are a staggering 30 times more likely to die in a traffic collision than those in a passenger vehicle, according to statistics from the IIHS. (more…)

Opioid-Related Car Accidents…

In a recent study done by Columbia University, researchers discuss an effect of the opioid crisis which may not be as well-publicized—fatal car accidents caused by drivers who were taking strong opioids. This current study indicates that the annual number of prescriptions for opioids (methadone, hydrocodone and oxycodone) quadrupled from 1991 to 2014. While there have been several studies done on whether the legalization of marijuana in some states has increased the incidence of auto accidents in those states, this opioid study covers formerly uncharted territory. In a country where nearly 100 million people took some form of prescription opioid medication (as per statistics from 2015), there have been more opioid-related car accidents ending in fatalities than ever before.

A new study puts a different spin on distracted driving, with a conclusion that in-vehicle technology may be even more dangerous than cell phone use—not that cell phone use is not still considered extremely dangerous while you are driving. The study looked at thirty different new (2017) vehicles, finding that twelve of them allowed drivers to program directions while operating the car.  (more…)
