Car accidents happen every day, in Colorado and across the nation. If you have been injured in a car accident that was someone else’s fault, The Sawaya Law Firm can help.
A December 2014 report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicated that in 2013 21,132 passenger vehicle occupants were killed and 2,046,000 were injured in traffic collisions on U.S. roadways. Passenger car and light truck occupants accounted for 65 percent of traffic fatalities that year.
