In Colorado personal injury law, the term negligence is extremely important. In any case, there are three things that you need to show to be successful. On of these things is that the person or entity that you have named in your claim was negligent. Very briefly, this means that they either did something that no reasonable person would, or that they failed to do something that any reasonable person would have done. When it comes to Colorado car wrecks, this could include drunk driving, running red lights, or driving straight through an intersection out of a left turn lane, among many other things. These things are unreasonable driving behavior, and therefore may be considered negligent.
