Car accidents happen everywhere. Since their inception, people all across the country have found themselves victims of crashes involving automobiles. This is especially dangerous considering the number of cars that are on the road. With such a vast city like Denver, there are bound to be instances in which two drivers come into contact with each other. Local and state governments may be doing a lot to prevent these types of incidents, but they persist nevertheless. It is for this reason that Denver car accident lawyers are so important. Mandelaris Law seeks to provide only the very best legal aid and assistance to those involved in automobile accidents.
Automobile Accidents: What the Statistics Say
As previously mentioned, the City of Denver and City of Aurora can be dangerous places to drive. This is unavoidable as, like many cities in North America, cars are a required mode of transportation due to the layout of our cities and local urban zoning laws. As many people find it impossible to walk from their house to the local grocery store or a restaurant, turning the key in the ignition and buckling in is unavoidable. This leads to a higher number of cars and an increased number of crashes within the city.
The city of Denver recognizes this difficulty. According to data provided by the City of Denver, 84 people died in traffic crashes in the year 2021. This is recorded as a record high, overcoming the previous record that was set in 2019 despite the lockdowns in place for Colorado residents. In response to this, new legislative propositions are being made to attempt to curb crashes and fatalities.
- In 2021, Denver county saw over 16,000 traffic accidents.
- Approximately one-fourth of these accidents resulted in an injury.
- Denver was the most dangerous county for automobile accidents in Colorado, followed closely by Adams, Arapahoe, and Jefferson Counties in 3rd, 4th, and 5th place respectively.
- Almost 20% of all serious accidents in the City of Denver occurred on roadways with a speed limit of fewer than 25 miles per hour.
Why They Happen and Their Consequences
Part of the reason this area of law is so important and accessible to firms such as our own is because of the sheer gravity of these types of accidents. Injuries in car accidents are all too common. It’s no surprise that multi-ton, metal machines traveling down the roadway at up to 75 mph can severely jeopardize the life of an individual. The accidents involved can cause the victim to go deep into debt due to their medical bills.
Some of the most common injuries seen in car accidents are as followed:
- Broken bones, ligaments, and appendages
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and other head injuries
- Damage to the spine, whiplash
- Lacerations and amputations
- Internal organ damage
- Excessive bleeding
- Partial or full paralysis
It is absolutely unavoidable that someone visits a doctor after experiencing injury in a car accident. However, between ambulance rides, surgeries, assisting medical devices, and visits by the doctor, the bills start to pile up. One of the leading causes of indebtedness in the United States is medical bills. This means that a Denver car accident attorney is absolutely necessary to ensure a stable financial future.
