Many Denver residents enjoy an active lifestyle that includes many outdoor activities. Drivers learn quickly that there are many pedestrians who share the road. Unfortunately, pedestrian car accidents do still occur and many times the results are serious.
A woman was killed crossing the busy Exposition Street at Colorado Blvd. While she was crossing Exposition, a car turned right onto Colorado Blvd. hit her and allegedly drove off. The woman died because of the injuries she suffered from being hit by the car. The car was identified as a 1958 white Chevrolet and was later located along with its driver, who was described as elderly. Denver police have not yet made an arrest. The intersection is known to be very busy for both cars and pedestrians.
Families who are affected by a car accident can be faced with many unexpected financial obligations, along with the mental anguish that can occur from the loss of a loved one. Medical expenses, funeral expenses, and loss of income are just some of the expenses that can occur. The long term financial implications for the loss can be detrimental for families. A legal professional skilled in personal injury can help a family determine what happened to their loved one and who is at fault. They can put together a wrongful death lawsuit against a negligent driver and attempt to collect compensation for the grieving families.
Nothing can bring back a loved one lost in a fatal accident. Families are often turned upside down by these events. Compensation can, however, help families move on with their lives and help bring some closure.
