The Most Dangerous Roads in Colorado

Our truck accident attorneys are devoted to representing drivers and passengers injured in vehicle accidents. Although we routinely handle accident cases that involve one or more typical passenger cars, we also have more than 20 years of experience representing plaintiffs injured in collisions with trucks on the highway.

Driver error is the most common reason that accidents and injuries happen, but as Colorado residents, we know that road conditions and weather can also be the culprit. You might think that Colorado’s most dangerous roads are the notorious winding highways through the mountains, but the statistics tell us that the state’s urban roads have more drivers, more congestion and more accidents.
