A collision between two trains in a Denver railyard was, fortunately, not the cause of any injuries, according to KDVR News. Two locomotives crashed into each other in the yard at 47th Ave and Packing House Rd, which caused one of the engines to leak diesel fuel. Because the accident occurred on railroad property, a private contractor was brought in to handle the clean-up. It is extremely fortunate that no one was injured, and no water source is believed to have been endangered.
Have you been seriously injured in an accident that you believe was caused by someone else’s negligence? Speak with an experienced Denver personal injury attorney immediately to protect your rights.
While train crashes are relatively uncommon occurrences, given the size and weight of the vehicles, and the speed at which they are able to travel, the potential for serious injury in a train collision is extreme. When trains collide with cars at railroad crossings, there is frequently a fatality involved. Unfortunately, many train crashes occur because a driver, cyclist, or pedestrian thought that he or she could “beat” the train at a crossing. The simple fact is, when a train hits you, whether you are in a vehicle or not, you lose. The chances of death are very high, and the chances of serious injury even higher.

An auto accident on I-25 caused southbound lanes to be closed for over an hour, according to the Denver Post. A sedan that had lost control was hit by a semi-truck; a Ford Bronco that may have been involved in some way is being sought by Police. Fortunately, neither driver was injured in the wreck, but two children, a two-year-old and a 19-month-old, who were riding in the car were taken to the hospital for observation. Police are investigating the cause of the crash. While we don’t know what caused this accident, or the final outcome for the children who were taken in for observation, whenever a car is hit by a semi, the people inside are at tremendous risk of injury or death.
Has your child been injured in an auto collision? Contact an experienced Denver auto collision attorney immediately to protect your options.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), not only are car crashes the leading cause of death among all people ages 5-34, but they assert that 13,000 lives were saved in 2009 by seat belts and child safety seats. All of this points to the extreme importance of everyone in a car being properly restrained. If you have children, be sure that you have the correct type of safety seat, that it is installed correctly, and that you restrain your children in it correctly every time they get in the car. Then, be sure to use your own seat belt. Not only will it protect you, but when your children see you using it, it helps start a good habit for them, and they will be more likely to use it themselves when they are old enough not to use a child safety seat.
If your child has been injured in an auto collision, contact a dedicated Denver auto collision law firm immediately. Nothing is more important than the health and safety of your children. John Fuller can help ensure that your child gets the best medical attention possible, and that insurance companies pay the full value of claims, as well as seeking compensation from negligent drivers.

The Aspen Daily News reports that a woman who was seriously injured last spring in a skiing accident has filed a claim against the man who she says caused her injuries. Susan Kern, who was in fact a ski instructor at Aspen for over 40 years, had slowed down as she entered the slow skiing area around a gondola plaza when she was struck by another, apparently out-of-control, skier. Ms. Kern, who is in her late 60’s, was wearing a bright red jacket, and should have been highly visible, when she saw the other skier behind her, approaching very quickly with no control. With broken ribs, hip, and leg bones as well as a deflated lung, Ms. Kern spent a significant time period in multiple hospitals as well as a nursing home. A year later, she is still in pain, has difficulty walking, has had to give up her job at Aspen, and in general her quality of life has declined significantly. Her suit says that the other skier failed to meet the quality of care that is due to other skiers under the law, and as such is responsible for her injuries, as well as her subsequent pain and suffering.
Have you been seriously injured in an accident that was caused by another person’s carelessness? Speak with an experienced Denver personal injury attorney immediately to protect your rights.
Although skiing is generally recognized as a potentially dangerous hobby, according to information reported by the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA), there tend to be about 40 serious injuries, as well as about 40 fatalities per year in skiing accidents. Given the tremendous popularity of the sport, these numbers are actually quite low. It is important, however, for everyone who skis to recognize that by being careful and staying within their own ability level, they are not only protecting their own safety, but the safety of others as well. In fact, the Ski Safety Act of 1979 is a Colorado law that creates a standard of care for everyone involved in skiing, from the owner of the ski area, to the lift operators, to the skiers themselves. While most people have probably not read the act, to a large extent, the law requires that skiers ski within their ability level, and under control in order to avoid just this kind of accident.
If you or a family member have been seriously injured in a skiing accident caused by the negligence of another skier, you should speak with a Denver personal injury attorney as soon as possible to discuss your options. It is, of course, important to keep in mind that skiing is potentially dangerous, and some injuries are to be expected from time to time, however just as you have a duty to be careful for the sake of your fellow skiers, so do they have a duty to be careful for your sake. Denver personal injury attorney John Fuller has experience recovering compensation for people who have been injured in all kinds of accidents. Your family should never have to face financial hardship because of someone else’s carelessness. For more information and a FREE CONSULTATION, contact John R. Fuller, PC today at (303)597-4500.

Aurora firefighter Jason Murphy was killed early Friday morning after being struck on his bicycle by a pickup truck. According to sources at 9news.com, the driver of the 2002 Dodge Ram pickup, 49-year-old William Nale, told authorities that he was unable to see Murphy in the marked crosswalk due to the morning sun.

Murphy passed away shortly after being taken to a local hospital for serious injuries. Police say Nale was cited for careless driving resulting in death and failing to provide proof of insurance.
Have you or a loved one been seriously injured in an auto crash and have questions concerning your personal rights? Contact a dedicated Colorado bicycle accident lawyer to evaluate your case.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, several hundred cyclists are killed in traffic accidents every year, and more than one in five deaths is the result of a collision with a vehicle at an intersection. In many cases, the accident occurred because the driver did not see the cyclist. Because cyclists have very little protection, it is important for both the driver, and the cyclist to proceed with caution and pay close attention when entering crossing zones or intersections. Colorado law requires all vehicles to stop for pedestrians at a crosswalk.
According to KDVR.com, Shawn Howell witnessed an accident this morning in which a trash collection truck rolled over onto a Jeep, causing significant damage to both the truck and the Jeep.

Shortly after the accident, an employee of Law Father who was on his way to work passed the accident site. He stopped to help, and took some pictures as workers returned the trash truck to its wheels.

Police are still investigating the cause of the accident. Witnesses at the scene said it appeared that the driver of the pick-up truck was unconscious when the accident happened. Greeley Police Cpt.
