How does negligence factor into my car accident case?

In Denver, drivers owe a duty of care to other motorists on the road. When a driver breaches that duty, and the resulting crash causes injuries to another person, the negligent driver can be held liable for damages.

Some examples of negligent driving include:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving while under the influence
  • Failing to yield
  • Tailgating
  • Drowsy driving
  • Wrong-way drivers
  • Road rage
