Several thousand pedestrians die in traffic accidents across the country each year. If the numbers in Denver are any indication, that number may even increase this year. Pedestrians and bicyclists are much more likely to be seriously injured in traffic accidents than people riding in cars and trucks. As such, the need for awareness concerning them is much higher. Some drivers who hit pedestrians may face criminal charges, and need to speak with a Denver criminal defense lawyer. The victims of these accidents may be entitled to financial compensation to cover the costs of their injuries.

Speak with a dedicated Denver pedestrian accident lawyer today to discuss your options if you or a loved one have been seriously injured in a traffic accident. Many Denver personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This minimizes the financial risk to you for seeking justice through the courts, because you will pay a fee to your lawyer only after he or she successfully recovers compensation for you. A Denver car accident lawyer may be able to recover compensation for medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The victims of pedestrian accidents often face permanent disability and a dramatically changed life. For more information, speak with a Denver auto accident attorney today.
