Injured While Walking?

Denver's Personal Injury Attorney

According to statistics published by The Denver Post in 2013, Colorado averages 1,600 accidents involving pedestrians or cyclists each year. Of the fatal accidents that are reported each year in Colorado, approximately 20 percent of the victims in these accidents are pedestrians or cyclists. In Denver County alone, the number of auto-pedestrian accidents was up 46 percent for the first eight weeks of 2013, according to the Denver Police Department.

Colorado residents tend to enjoy and spend substantial time outdoors, riding bicycles or walking from place to place. The City of Denver even provides a bicycle sharing program called Denver B-cycle, allowing its citizens to share bicycles to get around town. Colorado laws have been written to give as much protection as possible to the numerous pedestrians and cyclists using the streets of Colorado.
