uninsured drivers attorneyAccording to CBS News, a woman driving a Pontiac on I-70 in Aurora was killed after driving into the back end of a semi-truck. Police believe that the truck may have been having mechanical difficulties, and for that reason was driving very slowly in the lane of traffic. The woman came up behind the truck, and wedged her car underneath the back end of the trailer. She died at the scene. Investigators do not believe that drugs or alcohol were involved in the crash. Have you been seriously injured in a trucking accident? Contact an experienced Aurora trucking accident lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your options. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration traffic accidents involving large trucks account for over 50,000 injuries and about 3,000 fatalities every year. When a car or small truck is involved in a collision with a large, heavy commercial truck, the incredible difference in momentum can mean a terrible result for anyone inside the passenger vehicle. Of course, in most cases, commercial truckers are experienced, safe drivers but with the inherent difference in size, if a commercial vehicle accident is caused by negligent driving by the commercial driver, the outcome can be tragic.

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.
