Unfortunately, car accidents are far too common of a problem nationwide and in our state. According to the Colorado Department of Transportation, there were 433 fatal car crashes statewide in 2012. Of those 433 fatal crashes, 40 took place in El Paso County, and 26 of them happened specifically in Colorado Springs. Sadly, this is not the extent of car accidents in our area since many other accidents happen resulting in only personal injury or property damage.
When involved in a crash, Colorado Springs car accident lawyers can help you to get the money you deserve no matter the extent of your injuries. When you are involved in a car accident, one of the first things you should do is to see a doctor. You may not feel the extent of some injuries, such as whiplash, for several days.
