Denver and Aurora Car Accident Attorney
Every single day hundreds of automobile accidents take place. Whether they are minor fender benders or massive 10 car pile ups, they can result in years of pain and suffering for all those involved. Each year thousands of people suffer chronic and life changing injuries due to car crashes. Some of the most common injuries sustained in car crashes are back injuries and head and neck injuries such as whiplash, traumatic brain injury,and spinal cord injuries.
Besides injuring thousands of people every year, automobile accidents also claim thousands of lives. According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were 37,261 automobile accident fatalities in 2007 alone. Of those automobile accident fatalities, drunk driving accounted for 32%.
By far, the most popular reasons for car crashes are inattentive drivers and drivers that are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. An inattentive driver is one who is pre-occupied by someone or something else and does not have his/her full attention on the road. People can be distracted by small things, such as tuning the radio, talking to a passenger or using their cell phone. Driving while texting or talking on the cell phone is quite dangerous and has been linked to a large number of car accidents.
Driving while under the influence of alcohol is and continues to be a serious problem among automobile accidents. By law, anyone who operates a vehicle with a BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) of 0.08% or higher is guilty of this and can be held liable for damages and injuries that occur as a result of their negligence. Not only does it cause serious car accidents and injuries, but driving under the influence of alcohol takes innocent lives each and every year.
