Denver area residents are usually safe and courteous drivers. Unfortunately, accidents still happen, many times because some drivers choose to drive in an unsafe manner. A recent car accident in Fort Collins has claimed the life of two people.
This past Thanksgiving, a father and his daughter were killed in a car crash in Fort Collins. The two were in their vehicle when it was hit by a man driving a stolen pickup truck. The accident occurred at Arctic Fox and Caribou Drives. The driver of the truck has been arrested and may have been involved in a smash and grab at a pawn shop in Fort Collins earlier in the day.
No one expects their loved one will be seriously injured or killed in a car accident. One minute their loved one is alive and the next they are receiving a phone call saying they have been killed. This unexpected event can deeply affect a family, both financially and emotionally. If a loved one has been seriously injured or killed in an accident due to no fault of their own, they may want to speak with a legal professional skilled in personal injury. An attorney can review the circumstances surrounding the accident and help determine who is at fault. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, funeral expenses, lost wages, emotional trauma, and other damages.
An unexpected car crash can cause serious hardship for a family. They can be facing unexpected medical expenses along with the fact that their loved one is no longer with them. A family has the legal right to hold the negligent driver responsible for their mistake.
