COLLISION DURING PROTECTED LEFT TURN IN CASTLE ROCK, COLORADO
After dropping his son off at his parents’ house, our client was traveling westbound on Highway 86 in Castle Rock Colorado. Upon approaching the intersection of Enderud Boulevard, he pulled into the left to turn lane and waited. When the protected left turn arrow turned green, our client began to turn from Highway 86 onto Enderud Boulevard.
As our client entered the intersection, another vehicle traveling eastbound on Highway 86 approached the intersection of Enderud Boulevard. The driver of this vehicle disregarded her red light, and crashed into the front right side of our client’s vehicle. The collision caused injury to our client as well as damage to his car.
Our attorney argued that the collision was caused by the negligent actions of the other driver, including:
- Driving carelessly;
- Driving recklessly;
- Driving distracted;
- Ignoring a traffic control device;
- Keeping an improper lookout;
- Traveling at an unreasonable speed given the circumstances;
- Making an untimely and improper application of her brakes;
- Exhibiting inadequate driver attention;
- Taking improper evasive actions to avoid the collision; and
- Choosing to violate safety rules.
This case settled in pre-litigation, and our client received compensation for:
- medical expenses;
- lost wages;
- emotional stress;
- pain and suffering; and
- physical impairment

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Below are some frequently asked questions related to car accidents
Q: Do I need to hire a lawyer for a car accident that wasn't my fault?
A: If you’ve been injured in an accident that was due to the negligence of another, having an experienced personal injury attorney on your side will only increase your chances of obtaining a settlement that will cover your costs and expenses.
An accident lawyer will have the ability to conduct a thorough investigation into the facts surrounding the incident and will also take care to document your injuries and other damages using medical records and bills and financial and employment records.
With this information, your accident attorney will have the ability to evaluate your claim and help you negotiate a fair settlement. Without a personal injury lawyer, you might end up accepting a settlement offer that is much lower than what you need to recover from your injuries and other damages.
To understand your options, speak with an attorney today and tell them about your case.
Q: What compensation may I seek?
A: If you were injured in a car accident, the compensation you may be entitled to can include:
- medical expenses;
- future medical expenses;
- lost wages;
- future lost wages;
- loss of future earning capacity; and
- pain and suffering and emotional distress.
As this is not a definitive list, speak with an attorney to find out more about the compensation to which you may be entitled.
