Denver soldier makes remarkable recovery from brai…  

A Denver soldier, Joel Hunt, suffered serious injuries in 2005 when he was hit by a bomb blast during his third tour of duty in Iraq. The explosion left him with a traumatic brain injury (TBI), confining him to a wheelchair for an entire year after he returned home.Since then, Hunt has tried to be an inspiration to others who have suffered similar fates. Hunt has battled post-traumatic stress disorder and is still partially paralyzed in one leg. Despite his situation, he remains optimistic.He recently ran a 5k in Denver and a local organization, Operation TBI Freedom, has helped him learn to ski. In fact, Hunt now plans to compete as a skier in the 2014 Paralympics. He has heard too many stories of soldiers returning from Iraq and feeling useless. His goal is to show them that they are still valuable people who have a lot to offer.Recovering from a traumatic brain injury is not easy, and it can also come with costly medical bills. If you have been injured due to another person's negligence, contact the TBI attorneys of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., at (303) 423-1770.

Family sues ski area after man dies in avalanche…  

The widow of a skier who was tragically killed in a January avalanche at the Winter Park ski area is suing its operator, Intrawest.The 28-year-old man, a father of two, was skiing in a designated safe area on January 22. Reports indicate that he triggered a 40-foot-wide avalanche that barreled 30 feet down the hill, burying him. Rescuers later discovered his gloved hand protruding from the snow.The lawsuit against the ski area claims that its operators should have known that the area was unsafe and restricted skiers from accessing it, or at the very least warned them of the avalanche danger.When a person is killed in a ski area, it can be difficult to determine who is at fault. Our condolences go out to this man's family.

Underinflated tires increase chances of car accide…  

A new study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shows that vehicles whose tires are underinflated by more than 25 percent are three times more likely to be involved in auto accidents resulting from tire problems than those with properly inflated tires.The study examined car accident data from the period between 2005 and 2007. Five percent of the vehicles studied experienced a tire problem immediately before the accident.Drivers are urged to maintain properly inflated tires. Consumer Reports recommends people check their tire pressure every month. The study showed that as tire wear increases, the risk of a tire-related accident goes up dramatically.There are many common causes of car accidents. If you have been hurt in a car crash, contact the auto accident attorneys of Hull & Zimmerman , P.C., at (303) 423-1770.

Denver pilot nearly crashes into unmanned drone…  

A Denver pilot had an unexpected encounter with a remotely controlled drone on Monday.The Cessna pilot was flying 8,000 feet over Denver when he saw an unidentified aircraft fly past nearby. The FAA claimed the object could have been one of three things: a military or police drone, a remote-controlled aircraft, or a really large bird.The only entity that is allowed to operate drones in the Denver area is University of Colorado’s Center for Unmanned Aircraft Systems, but they are not allowed to operate drones in that area or at such a high altitude. Drones are currently limited to altitudes of 400 feet by the FAA. The university insists it had no drones in the air on Monday and only operates within approved airspace.Whoever was in control of the object was violating aviation law and acting irresponsibly. Had an airplane accident occurred, it probably would have been fatal. If you have been hurt in an airplane accident, contact the airplane accident lawyers of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., at (303) 423-1770.

The Dotsero Bridge, which runs across the Colorado River in Dotsero, is free to anyone who can submit an adequate plan to relocate it.The bridge was built in 1935 and spans a total of 150 feet. The Colorado Department of Transportation says the bridge could be easily restructured to be used as a pedestrian bridge.The Dostero Bridge does not meet current safety standards, and it contains lead paint. Anyone who takes the bridge will need to remove this dangerous substance, especially if it will be used by pedestrians. Prolonged exposure to lead paint is toxic to humans.If you have been exposed to lead paint, contact the Denver lead paint poisoning attorneys of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., by calling (303) 423-1770.

Junior Seau’s brain to be donated for resear…  

NFL Hall of Famer Junior Seau was found dead in his home last Wednesday. He is alleged to have committed suicide by shooting himself in the chest. He is at least the third former NFL star to have done so in the past year.This tragic event comes during a time when the football league is facing lawsuits for not warning its players of the dangers of concussions. Other players who have committed suicide in the past year have been said to suffer from depression and mental problems. The lawsuits claim that these suicides may be connected to concussions the players suffered while on the field.Seau's family has released a statement saying that his brain will be donated to science for the betterment of other athletes who may be under similar circumstances. They do not believe concussions necessarily played a role in his early departure.Junior Seau was inducted into the Hall of Fame during halftime of a Nov. 27, 2011 game between the Chargers and the Broncos. Our condolences go out to Seau's family.
