Colorado is a popular state for bike riding. Whether training for the Triple Bypass or commuting to work on a daily basis, these cyclists can increase the risk of crashes. Both drivers and cyclists need to understand how to share the road so no one gets hurt.
When you are in your car traveling in Colorado and a motorcyclist suddenly enters your field of vision, you may be caught off guard by his or her sudden appearance. Because motorcyclists are much smaller than an average vehicle and are more vulnerable than other motorists, it is critical that you drive extra cautiously around them. At Ciancio, Ciancio & Brown, we have been able to help many victims and their families with the consequences of tragic motorcycle accidents.
For many riders, there is no better way to enjoy 360-degree views of the Colorado landscape than from a motorcycle. Although passenger cars and trucks do not have amazing views, they have safety features. Riders have virtually no protection in the event of a collision with another vehicle. At Ciancio Ciancio Brown, P.C., we often represent clients whose loved ones are seriously injured or killed in a crash with a car or truck.
Increased regulations are among the reasons that truck accidents in Colorado are more complicated than non-commercial vehicle collisions. However, the regulations may also act in your favor when attempting to secure payment for injuries.
Traffic accidents happen every day, so much so that some victims avoid a professional medical examination afterward because they don't feel any injuries. It is possible to survive a car accident without injuries, but victims often suffer injuries that do not cause pain for several hours or days. If you experience a car accident, you should always receive a complete medical examination to identify injuries you cannot yet feel.
As your kids finish out the final few weeks of school in Broomfield, their attention will inevitably start to turn to all of the fun that awaits them during the summer. One activity that nearly every kid looks forward to is swimming. Yet as a concerned parent, you know the dangers that a swimming pool can pose to children. While you do your best to advise your children of these risks, their excitement at being poolside might overrule those warnings. Your hope, then, is that pool owners will take the necessary precautions to restrict your kids' access to them. Many come to us here at Ciancio Ciancio Brown PC questioning what legal recourse may be available to them when that does not happen.
Perhaps the most jarring news that one can receive aside from hearing that a loved one has unexpectedly died on Broomfield is that they have sustained a traumatic brain injury. Such injuries can leave victims in need of lifelong, around-the-clock care, which can exact both a heavy financial and emotional toll on their family members and friends. Yet not all TBI cases turn out like this. Information shared by the American Association of Neurological Surgeons shows that as many as 1.7 million new TBI cases are reported each year in the U.S. Certainly all of those do not result in worst-case scenarios.
People in Broomfield trust in law enforcement officers to uphold the law and keep them safe. Fulfilling that expectation requires entrusting officers with the ability to use force in the execution of their duties. The hope may be that such officials are able to exercise sound judgment in the application of that force. Yet police officers may be subject to the same stresses that people in the general population face, and likewise may experience the same fears when confronted with a potentially tense situation. Unfortunately, the resources they use in their work could cause their reactions to said situations to produce devastating results.
Privacy advocates are raising concerns about Volvo's interior cameras, but the car-maker that stakes its reputation on safety places a higher value of curbing crash-related injury and fatalities.
Motor vehicle wrecks happen for countless reasons, such as icy roads and improper vehicle maintenance. However, there are many other factors that can play a role in the likelihood of a driver causing a collision, and some of these factors are not given as much attention as drunk driving, for example. A driver who has recently been through a divorce or is experiencing emotional distress for some other reason (such as the loss of a loved one) may be more likely to cause a crash for different reasons, and it is imperative to be aware of these dangers if you are struggling with strong emotions behind the wheel.
