Denver Colorado (PRWEB) October 29, 2011
Traffic accidents in the state of Colorado are often investigated by the Colorado State Patrol, which keeps a record of each crash it investigates, and maintains a large statistical database that allows citizens to better understand the causes of vehicular accidents. The Denver car accident attorneys of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C. have reviewed the most recent accident data available and identified several leading causes of traffic accidents statewide.
Because the causes of traffic accidents do not vary dramatically from year to year, we believe that statistics from previous years offer good indications of current year trends. The most recent year for which accident statistics are readily available is 2008. During that year, the Colorado State Patrol responded to more than 4,000 accidents that resulted in injury or death. Some of the leading causes of these accidents were:
- Distracted driving
- Intoxicated driving
- Falling asleep while driving
- Improper merging
- Illegal left turns
Based on the results of studies like these, Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., has concluded that driver misconduct seems to play a major role in many car accidents. When an official accident report determines that driver error is responsible for an accident, victims and victims' family members may be able to sue for damages.
