According to The Chieftain, a single-vehicle rollover accident sent a mother and her daughter to the hospital. The woman, who lives in Lakewood, was driving just south of Pueblo when she swerved to avoid an elk in the road, and ended up rolling her Jeep Liberty. The woman’s one-year-old daughter, who was thrown from the vehicle, was transported to Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs. The driver was taken to St. Anthony’s in Denver. A third passenger was taken to a hospital in Alamosa, but was released. The Colorado State Patrol does not believe that alcohol, drugs, or speeding were factors in the crash, but are looking into whether the child was securely restrained in a child safety seat.
Have you or a loved one been injured in a car crash? Speak with an experienced Pueblo car crash attorney immediately to discuss your options.
Not every car crash happens because a driver acted carelessly or negligently. Sometimes, things just happen: wildlife in the road, extreme weather conditions, and emergency situations are issues that no one can control. However, in many cases, car crashes are the result of one (or more) driver either acting in a way that a reasonable person wouldn’t, or failing to act in a way that a reasonable person would. This is what is meant by negligence. When another driver’s negligence causes serious injury, you can be compensated for the cost of that injury.
If you have been seriously injured by another driver’s negligence, speak with an experienced Pueblo car crash attorney as soon as possible to discuss your options.
