Walkers are among those at highest risk of serious or fatal injury in a collision with a motor vehicle.
Pedestrian accidents are a serious and growing issue in Colorado, promoting the Colorado Department of Transportation to launch its “Left Behind” campaign in 2021. This heartbreaking campaign focuses on the sneakers, broken eyeglasses, smashed cell phones and other personal belongings left behind after a walker is struck by a motor vehicle.
Of course such personal items are not all that is left behind. Our experienced Denver pedestrian injury lawyers know that good health and the ability to earn a living are also often left behind, as are medical bills, pain and suffering and disability. These are complex cases precisely because victims are often very seriously injured and left to deal with life-long impairments that reduce their ability to earn a living, provide for their families and enjoy life.
Ken Fiedler Injury Law provides passionate, principled and proven representation to victims and families looking for an experienced pedestrian injury lawyer in Denver or the surrounding areas, including Highlands Ranch, Littleton, Ken Caryl, Columbine, Golden, Lakewood, Broomfield, and Arvada.
Like other types of personal injury claims under Colorado law, pedestrian injury claims in Denver have five elements:
Walkers are frequently and unfairly blamed in the wake of a serious or fatal accident. And victims are often surprised to learn that insurance companies are not bound by law enforcement’s determination of causation. These are serious and complex claims and families are best served by early consultation with an experienced Denver pedestrian injury attorney who will fight for their rights while allowing them to focus on treatment and recovery.
