Car crashes can happen any time of year, of course, but winter is a very bad time for them.
Recently, two Colorado Springs car accidents sent at least two people to the hospital and snarled the morning commute for hours.
According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, one crash occurred at the intersection of Marskheffel Road and Highway 94. A pregnant woman and her 8-year-old son had to be taken to a local hospital.
The second car wreck occurred where Titus Road meets Highway 115. It doesn’t seem anyone was seriously injured in that accident, but nonetheless, it added significant delays for people in that commute.
The reason we are taking note of these accidents is that they do a good job of showing how car accidents can (and do) happen every day. We all think of car accidents as something that happens to “the other guy,” but car wrecks are an unfortunate fact of life.
If you are ever involved in a car accident, it would be a mistake to write it off as “just one of those things that happens.” Rather, it would be a much better approach to at least talk over what happened with a personal injury attorney. This attorney will be able to advise you as to whether you have any legal recourse.
