Two people have been arrested following an accident in Colorado Springs. The two were racing each other at more than 70 mph in a 35 mph speed zone in downtown Colorado Springs. The two broadsided another vehicle and the driver died of his injuries. The racing drivers are facing vehicular homicide charges.
No one expects their loved one will be killed by a negligent driver. Unfortunately, these tragic situations affect many families in Colorado and across the United States each year and can leave both emotional and financial repercussions. If a family has lost a loved one due to an accident or a loved one has been seriously injured because of another’s negligence, they may want to speak with a personal injury attorney about the possibility of filing a personal injury claim.
An attorney can review the circumstances surrounding the accident and help determine what happened. They can review police reports and interview witnesses to get the answers victims deserve. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, funeral expenses, lost wages, and other damages. Although nothing can bring back a loved one, compensation can help a family recover financially and receive a sense of justice.
No one expects their loved one will be in a serious accident. These accidents can seriously affect a family both financially and emotionally. Although nothing can bring back the loss of a loved one, compensation can help a family move on.
