Slip-and-fall accidents might occur on snow or ice

As winter approaches us, it's time for pedestrians to start thinking about snow and ice that might be on the sidewalks as they walk around our beautiful city. While the snow might be very pretty, it can also be dangerous for people who are walking about. Property owners likely have a duty to keep the sidewalks and other areas free of snow and ice if they have reason to believe that pedestrians will traverse them on their way around town.

Knowing how to stay safe when the weather outside is frightful

With winter weather close at hand for many areas of Colorado, you might have concerns for your safety as you navigate the open road. While living in an area where snowy weather is a constant fixture, you might find it imperative to become informed on how to operate a vehicle in adverse conditions safely.

Car wrecks can impact your ability to enjoy the holidays

As the holiday season approaches, people are going to be heading out on the roads more to do their shopping. Even those who order online contribute to the traffic since delivery drivers have to head out on the roads. All this increase in traffic means that there will almost certainly be an uptick in the number of accidents that occur.

Accommodations at work might be necessary after a brain injury

When you are accustomed to working for a living, you don't want anything to come between you and your paycheck. For people who suffer traumatic brain injuries (TBI), there are sometimes instances in which they need to seek specific accommodations to be able to continue do their job duties. This can be a challenge, especially when they are used to doing the job without any.

NHTSA reports rise in fatal truck accidents

You may not like to think about how vulnerable you are when you travel Colorado's roads and highways. However, it is undeniable that you are at risk. Last year, over 37,000 people died on the nation's highways, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. While that number is lower than the previous two years, that makes little difference if someone you love was among those thousands.

Compensation claims after a brain injury are for more than money

A brain injury can impact you for the remainder of your life. Even when you do heal some from the initial impacts of it, you might notice things that remind you of the accident that injured you. When the incident first occurs, your primary consideration is getting the medical care that you need. Since you are dealing with an injury that's affecting your brain, it is imperative that you do seek out care right away.

Plan carefully for trick-or-treating

October is right around the corner, which means that people are going to start making plans for Halloween. When you are planning your outing with your children, you need to be sure that you are keeping safety in mind. Even though there are going to be plenty of people out for trick-or-treating, some drivers might not give pedestrians the attention and courtesy they deserve.
